Trencadis Lizard by Gaudi at Park Guell, Barcelona

Trencadis Lizard by Gaudi at Park Guell, Barcelona [Much Better Enlarged]
© All Rights Reserved

Famous lizard by Antoni Gaudi (1852 - 1926) using mosaic technique called trencadis. So many times photographed, in so many angles, with so many different exposures and cameras. This is another must see, so I don't know how you are going to combine Park Güell with Palau de la Música, the tour on the bus, the museums, the restaurants, Sagrada Familia and Las Ramblas (missing something here? I bet I am!). For those who don't know where the fountain is inside the park check virtual tour at this fabulous site I suggested yesterday. If you want to know more about mosaic and particularly Gaudi's or Jujol's work (his collaborator)visit The Joy of Shards.

Thanks Pierre that mood you have created with that great quote should be accompanied by this: "riders on the storm riders on the storm into this house were born into this world were thrown..."
And of course the sound of water in the fountain". ;)
