Mi primer viaje a España

April 22, 2014

I’ve just returned from my first trip to Spain.  It was amazing and I wish we had been able to spend more time!  I’ve got plenty of material for this blog, and lots of photos to work with.

Having been suffering through the seemingly endless winter in the Northeast, the weather in Spain was just fabulous! Those blue skies you see below are the real thing!  It was perfect to get out of the photographic rut I have been in due to the prolonged winter.

This is the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.  It is a wonderful museum in Barcelona, housed in the Palau Nacional (national palace), on the mountain of Montjuïc. The museum, the mountain and the surrounding area could keep a photographer busy for days. The building was built for the 1929 International Exposition. The foundation was laid in 1926, and it opened for the Exposition in 1929. (This was the second International Exposition in Barcelona, the first being in 1888). In 1934, it became the site of the museum, which contains Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century.

I’ll post more pictures which show the full extent of the buildings from the Exposition, including the two towers modeled after St. Mark’s Campanile in Venice and the Olympic stadium located on the mountain above the museum.  I also have some shots from the impressive exhibits within the museum.

  1. I had the pleasure of living in the Alpujarras in Andalucia for a short time some years ago. I moved there in the middle of winter from East Africa and left 104F to arrive at below 20F with snow up to my thighs. A real shock to the system. It was a beautiful place to live though.
