    Casa BatllΓ³ is also my favorite among the Gaudi’s masterpieces. It’s so unusual and still beautiful, it has something that remains there deep in the memory.

    Will the blues & greens in photo number 7 reminds me so much of Yves Saint Laurent’s Marrakech hideaway retreat Jardin Majorelle.

    One of my friends from home just returned from a week in Spain, and between her photos + yours I’m definitely wanting to make a visit. Looks like such a gorgeous place! Can’t wait to see the photos from book #2, best of luck.
