Tuesdays of Texture : Week 26 of 2017

La Sagrada Familia

Inside La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

This is a photo of the inside of La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s masterpiece in Barcelona, one of the most famous sights in that city.  The building of the church started in 1882, and is still going on  – it was designed by Antoni Gaudi and he worked on this cathedral and other projects until his death in June 1926.

In 1914 he left all other work to concentrate exclusively on this sole project until his death on 10 June 1926, the result of a tragic accident three days earlier. His funeral cortege, which went through much of Barcelona and finished in the Sagrada Familia, was a grand event in the city in recognition of his status as the greatest architect Barcelona has ever seen. Gaudí was buried in the chapel of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia.

It is a magnificent building, both inside and out, and if you are ever in Barcelona, it’s a must see – in fact it is so imposing that you really cannot miss it!

Norm’s Thursday Doors :

My doors this week come from the fabulous Muckross House in Killarney, Co. Kerry.  This is a 19th century house built on the shores of the Lakes of Killarney, with magnificent gardens and old trees.   The house was built in 1839, and extensive work was done on the house and gardens in preparation for the visit of Queen Victoria in 1861 .

Muckross House, Killarney

This is the main entrance to the house, which is open to the public, and furnished in the original style – a very grand mansion, but probably not so grand for those living ‘downstairs’ and having to carry everything up two or three flights of stairs from the kitchens in the basement.

And these are some of the doors from the back of the house – probably a storeroom.

Servant’s Entrance?

Thursday Doors : March 30, 2017

This is another door we came across in the town of Lismore, Co. Waterford.   It is sad to see that this building is all shut up and neglected, as there was a really lovely restaurant there, O’Briens Chop House, which closed a few years ago.   Let’s hope the place soon comes back to life again.

Atop : The Daily Post

Main Tower,Frankfurt

These are the views from atop the Main Tower in Frankfurt, the tallest building in Frankfurt at about 260 metres high, and 56 floors high.   Don’t worry though, you don’t have to climb up 56 floors, there are high speed lifts to get you to the top in no time at all.

You will see from the top picture the symmetry of the streets, all laid out in neat blocks, and with many trees and parks that make Frankfurt a very green and open air place, in spite of the skyscrapers in the business district.

And after all that sightseeing, when Nana treats you to a big Ice cream with lots of extras, you are on top of the world!

Yummy yummy!
