The last series of Barcelona has some fine churches of the city. I’m always attracted by churches, big or small. Faith can result in remarkable things. I always try to find a different point of view in churches to emphasise the beauty of it.
Like the main cathedral of Barcelona in the gothic city centre.
The detail of the main entrance is unbelievable.

It is a pseudo basilica, vaulted over five aisles, the outer two divided into chapels. The east end has nine radiating chapels.
While walking in Barcelona, I stumbled into this church, the Parròquia de la Purissima Concepcio. While looking around there I witnessed the start of a wedding ceremony. A stunning environment for a wedding.
A visit to the Sagrada Familia is compulsory. It will be finished in 2027 (latest predictions). It is already a impressive building with a lot of symbolism. The church has a ‘gloria’-side about the arrival of Jesus, the other side is the ‘passion’ side about the crucifixion.
The color of the glass symbolises the morning and the evening.
The morning …
and the evening
We went also up the tower with the elevator where a spiral stairway brings you down.
The door of the Passion-side
Personally I liked the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar the most. A stunning and impressive old church with high columns and arches.
Thanks you for watching and your interest in my photography.
