Indoor Rainbows at the Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

I know I featured a cathedral in last week’s post (Siena Duomo, Tuscany), but the challenge themes on offer this week lead me straight back to another one.

The light, airy, modern (in fact, still unfinished) architecture of Antonio Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona couldn’t be more different from the gothic massiveness of the Duomo in Siena. To be honest, prior to our visit, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it.

But upon entering that incredible space, I was an instant fan.

The lofty pillars and vaulting really do give the feeling you’re in a forest of white-barked trees.

And the light streaming in through the contrasting colours of the stained-glass windows bathe the inside of that stone forest in a breathtaking rainbow.
