Casa Batllo, Barcelona

I've been to Barcelona a couple times now, and love Antonio Gaudi's architecture and style.  I'm not the only one.  All of Barcelona loves Gaudi, and Gaudi loved Barcelona.  This apartment building is one of his later designs at Casa Batllo.  Earlier in the day, we visited Sagrada Familia cathedral, a spectacular, if not seminal symbol of Gaudi.  Still yet, I was tingling virtually my entire visit to Casa Batllo.   It's on what might be opposing ends of the spectrum, both art, and architecture.  Or form and function.  And on both fronts, it's exquisite.  This is a photo of a little artistic note at the top of the staircase handrail.
