Barcelona Cathedral

Gargoyles of Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona has an amazing mixture of new and old architecture. Today we have old. Construction on this cathedral began in the 13th century and was completed two-hundred years later. My time was limited, so I didn’t step foot inside, but managed to wrestle through the crowds, set the tripod up in its low position, and patiently wait until tourists–looming overhead–dispersed. This awesome narrow passageway has a unique skyline filled with gargoyles. My favorite is the unicorn with the great big fangs. I guess they had to make it scary.
