sagrada familia

i couldn't speak when i saw this. i have never been moved by a church like this in my life.
i have seen sagrada familia about 25 years ago but from the outside only. but seeing this, almost at sunset, exceeded all my ideals of beauty. the church is flooded with colours.

the passion facade is outside. the blood red pours inside.
on the opposite side is the nativity facade, the stained glass is in blue and green. to see the effect you need to go to the church early in the morning

you can see here how the stained glass reflects on the stone.

it really is stunning--i've been twice and would go again.
i couldn't believe it--i heard two people complaining that they had to pay 10E to see it.
apparently churches should always be free for tourist to gawp at! argh.
