Gargoyles and Grotesques

Gargoyles and Grotesques were in great abundance in both France and Catalunya, but Barri Gòtic offered some of the finest and most unique grotesques I have ever seen.

I had long looked forward to visiting the Barcelona district, and wasn't disappointed! Barri Gòtic's narrow maze of streets and alleys were packed with churches, restaurants and antique dealers. The districts beautiful architecture is wonderfully intricate and seemingly endless. The detailed fantastical figures which adorn most of the buildings are full of character, and seem to carry an entirely unique personality which is utterly delightful.
