Postcard from…Gaudi

My favourite church of all time is La Sagrada Familia, designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi. When you wander through Barcelona, you can see his influence all over the city. So I was majorly excited when I found out that Gaudi had been involved in the design of Palma Cathedral.

The cathedral itself has a lengthy history, dating way back to before Gaudi was even a twinkle in his mother’s eye. But there were a few design issues with the church, and when renovating it, they brought him in to share his wisdom. While he may not have finished what he set out to do, you can definitely see his influences in the church.

And so, once we’d taken a tour of the cathedral, I just had to grab a postcard of some of the best Gaudi bits in there. Unfortunately, some of my favourite things of his are really minor, like the gate stopping people wandering around the altar, or the lights which hung around the pillars. They’re so minor in fact, that it could be a bit weird to put them on a postcard when he had such greater and larger changes. I’ll just have to settle for a photo of those, but at least I found this great postcard of some of his other work in the cathedral.
