Behind the lens: My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary by traveling throughout the lower part of Spain, and we decided to stay in Barcelona for two days because Antoni Gaudí was one of the greatest architects and artists of the art nouveau movement in the early 1900s. We walked around the house of Gaudi. I must say the place is like a heaven because of its location on top of a hill over a beautiful huge garden and the Mediterranean seaside of Barcelona! Once inside the house-museum, we were able to see some of Gaudi's artwork on display. He designed it for himself, including chairs, desks and light fixtures.
