More photos from our trip to Casa Batlló.

When a Cure song crept out over the bar stereo, it was with great pleasure that I told my friend, "I'm taking my sweetie to see The Cure… in Barcelona!"
Casa Batlló is a bold, exuberant composition of natural organic forms, symbolism, and brilliant color, with a generous and playful use of mosaic glass and ceramics. The top of the façade is famously known as the dragon's back because the curving shape looks like a spine and the colored masonry tiles are its iridescent scales.
With beautiful architecture that changes from building to building to building, I've never enjoyed exploring a city so much as I did Barcelona, and I can't wait to return and find new places and spaces to lose myself in all over again.
