Gaudi: Lizards at Sagrada Familia

Gaudi: Lizards at Sagrada Familia
© All Rights Reserved

For those of you who are fond of gargoyles,mythological beings,gods or goddesses, serpents, unicorns, gryphs or lizards I let you catch a glimpse of Gaudi's work on the façade of Sagrada Familia facing the upper side of the city also known as mountain side. It is a part that we tend to ignore as it reminds us of some other average churches but if you take a closer look you discover strange creatures for a church or impossible spires multiplying by the dozen on top.

Those lizards are absolutely terrific. Wish I could take them off and put them on my front door! Now that would be a great feature! Thanks Carlos.

Thanks everybody. Harleqinpan, this side is being restored so I guess they will place some stain glass windows when they are over.
