Casa Batlló (Antoni Gaudi), Barcelona - SPAIN - UNESCO #320
This oficial card came from a portuguese postcrosser but it shows one of the works of the amazing architect Antoni Gaudi, a card she bought when she visited Barcelona and one of the seven landmarks of this UNESCO WHS. Thank you very much Tânia, Barcelonais one of my favorite cities in Europe (one of the few I could easily imagine living in) and this is my first card with a Gaudi work (I really want to collect all seven) so my collection rises to 208, 773 to the end. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
Seven properties built by the architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) in or near Barcelona testify to Gaudí’s exceptional creative contribution to the development of architecture and building technology in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The seven buildings are: Parque Güell; Palacio Güell; Casa Mila; Casa Vicens; Gaudí’s work on the Nativity façade and Crypt of La Sagrada Familia; Casa Batlló; Crypt in Colonia Güell.
