Sagrada Familia in night

2008-04-27 1

The well-known Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is perhaps one of the last great “century’s constructions” of a cathedral, and like in the middle-ages the construction lasts for over then a century now (since 1882!!) and it’s still not finished… If you want the whole story about the Sagrada, have a look at the official website (link below) but if you’re in Barcelona, you must go visit the place, and the best moment for me is during the night! Until midnight, the cathedral lights are on, and the place takes a different face from the day, much more impressive, the shadows and colours of the light gives you the impression of a living beast in the middle of the city: it’s alive!! Turn around the whole building and it will change its face, staring at you at every moment with a different face! :) It’s a fascinating experience to visit this huge building at night, very different from the day (but it’s very impressing at daylight too!) and gives you the opportunity to make cool pictures, of course!
