Maybe it was the outstanding Catalan dinner last night (at Mercat a la Planxa) or the cold weather (-2F today) or a friend’s blog link to Casa Batllo, but I’m feeling nostalgic for Barcelona.
Casa Mila, La Pedrera
And nothing says Barcelona more than Casa Mila, what locals call La Pedrera, or the stone quarry. A commission to produce a Casa Batllo lookalike (on a grander scale), Gaudi produced something right out of the Flintstones — a local point of shame for 75 years, or until Gaudi was rediscovered in the 1980s.
A reminder that there are no bad ideas, just bad timing.
