Postcard from Barcelona: Casa Milà

This is Casa Milà, a main tourist attraction in Barcelona. The building, located in the luxury Eixemple District, is considered one of the best examples of Antoni Gaudi's work. Antoni Gaudi is of course, the Father of the Modernisme movement in Spain.

I love it!!! near there are a shop called Vinçon where you must go in, and visit the second floor of the shop, it was a old family house and you could have a very good decorative show and a good view of Paseo de Gracia!
Take a look!

It's weird, I'm not sure about it Ming. Kind of funky but I'm thinking ugly. What do I know! Hope you are having a great time my friend!
