Even the underside of the balconies are decorated.

Decorous house

I liked the cactus.

Love these gargoyles.

Such beautiful architecture

St. George slaying the dragon

More gargoyles

View of the cathedral

Cathedral spires

Church bells

Old and new

Tapas are everywhere!

Our metro stop - such a wonderful system

Independence protest

Gaudi house

Yes, this is where we get the English word "gaudy" from.


Loving the palm trees

Spanish are proud of their explorers

None more so than Christopher Columbus (Colon) - but no mention anywhere of his atrocities

Magellan was the first to circumnavigate the globe

Guy who wiped out the Incas

No arms, no arms

A maritime legacy
