On one of these day in Barcelona, my friend and I visited this wonderful building named Casa Milà, well known as La Pedrera, constructed by the architect Antoni Gaudí. Frankly speaking, you don't actually have to be a fan of Gaudi or an architecture student/professional in general to appreciate that this buildings is truly a beauty as La Sagrada Família; even if it's just from the outside.
It was nearly the end of the summer when we were there, so it was still kinda warm and we spent an hour or so up there in the mid morning, swept away my very being by the whimsical sculptures and the beautiful views of the city. Astonishing! ♥‿♥
I ordered its signature cake named The Cake for the Centenary of La Pedrera, where ceilings of Jujul room become merengue on top, white chocolate mousse and black chocolate, both blend with the exotic lychees and balconies are adorned with a crunchy praline in copper. Delightful, indeed.
Before we headed off to the beach in the afternoon, we dropped by Casa Batllo, a remodeled nineteenth century building, one of Gaudí's masterpieces in Barcelona. Just by checking out the exterior can really brightens up the dullest day, don'tcha say so? :p
Thanks a million to her, Kayla, for making my stays in Barcelona full of joy. I've learned that even only two people go for a trip it can be very enjoyable as long as both of us are true to each other, where smiles are warm turn to joyful laughter.
p/s: Three more tourist attractions I'd like to share in next two posts, so stay tuned for Barcelona IV and Barcelona V.
