Whats the best hostel in Barcelona that is cheap but not trashy? by Nic Q: I dont want to spend more that $35 a night if possible. Im also staying with a friend, if that can affect the price at all.

A: You could try the Yellow Nest hostel or the Sant Jordi Sagrada Familia, both of which are among the top hostels in Barcelona. Prices at the Yellow Nest start from $28.70 per night per person, whilst in the Sant Jordi prices are from $32.28 per night per person. http://www.hostelbookers.com/

what are the best places to visit in madrid and barcelona? by kel Q: Im going to madrid and then barcelona and i want to know the key places to visit (sightsee), i know there is a lot of options yet i want to know the MUST to go see places.

A: This question is asked a lot in different forms (usually for each city) My favorites: Barcelona: Museums: Museu Picasso, Fundacio Miro, Museu de la Ciutat (City Museum). The 2nd is a little out of the in the Parc Montjuic, but is the best collection of Miro's work anywhere. Architecture: Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Casa Mila (aka La Pedrera), Casa Batllo, in that order. All these are Gaudi buildings, the first two are must-see, and the 3rd almost is. You can walk down the street Passeig de Gracia from Casa Mila to at least see the outside of Casa Batllo as well as other Art Noveau Buildings. A short hike up to the Tres Creus in Parc Guell gives you nice views of the city and helps orient you. Music: Palau de Musica. Another Art Noveau gem. Try to catch a concert there (make sure its in the main hall) over the tour. It's gorgeous and the music is great. Buy tickets online. restaurants: Les Quinze Nits (15 Nights) in Placa Real - get there about 20-30 minutes before opening as they don't take reservations. If you can't get in there, try La Fonda (I hear it's owned by the same people). Both excellent Catalan food at very reasonable prices. Also try Origen 99.9, a local chain, but good authentic Catalan food. Get there a little before opening because they don't take reservations and often only do one sitting. http://www.origen99.com/web/ Tapas Gaudi of La Rambla de Gaudi (not Las Ramblas, but near Sagrada Familia) is a good tapas place. nightlife: Clubs everywhere, for a slightly more relaxed and less touristy experience try Placa del Sol or La Cervesera Artesana (http://www.lacervesera.net/eng/indexeng.... best beer in Barcelona, not that that says a lot. Drink wine everywhere else - reds from La Rioja, whites and Cavas from Penedes). Other: La Boqueria market, Las Ramblas, Barri Gotic, including Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar. Just wander that area. Sitges for nearby beaches, though the ones in the city are decent if you don't have the time to get down there. Day trips: Montserrat for the mountain monastery and hiking (and the caves that inspired the Sagrada Familia if you're lucky), Sitges for beaches (Cadaques is better but farther), Tarragona for Roman ruins (and more beaches). Figueras for the Dali museum. Madrid (I know less): See the big 3 art museums: The Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza. The Parque de Buen Retiro is a huge park in the middle of the city. Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida: A small church with frescoes by Goya. Palacio Real. The plazas, especially Plaza Mayor Day trips: Toledo, Segovia Have fun!

Interesting sights in Barcelona? by Aidas Q: Hello, we are going to Bacelona at the end of November and want to find interesting places to visit. Of course, I know there is Sagrada Familia and other churches and museums, we will visit them for sure. But does anyone know if there are streets/districts, that aren't popular among tourists that are woth visiting? Because we want to find out more about the culture of Barcelona, not only about the things that are written in the tourist guides. Thanks in advance!

A: I've visited Barcelona about once a year since 1991, and I still haven't seen everything worth visiting... The Gothic Cathedral and the surrounding Quarter (El Barri Gothic), including the city hall (Ayuntamiento) in the Plaça Sant Jaume... Las Ramblas... Plaça de Catalunya... All of Gaudis prodigious buildings, his own home in the Parc Güell, the park itself.. The Sagrada Familia (don't eat in the vicinity, the area is a tourist trap) Tibidabo, views are magnificent from the café El Mirador... Montjuic, with the fortress and magnificent views of the city... El Poble Espanyol... Parc de Pedralbes with its Palace.... Ciutat Vella... El Raval... Fira de Mostres with the Palau Alfonso XIII and Palau Victoria Eugenia and behind them the Museu Nacional de Arte de Catalunya... Camp Nou (football stadium)... The Diagonal (The longest avenue in the city)... La Barceloneta... L'Aquarium... Parc de la Ciudadela with the Zoo... And many other things.... Then If you have time, leave the city and drive to Monserrat.. The monastery is beautiful and the views also. Sant Sadurni d'Anoia to visit the wineries (Codorniu has a fantastic guided visit). Sitges, on the coast, and have a meal at any one of the wonderful restaurants across from the beach. There are so many things worth doing, places worth visiting... No matter how long your stay is, it will seem too short! :-) P.S. The food is magnificent...Almost everywhere... Don't leave without having a "pan amb tomaquet" for breakfast or a snack (specially with jamon serrano)!

What is the cheapest way to travel between Germany, France and Spain? by John Q Q: I want to travel in Frankfurt, Cologne, Munich, Marseille, Barcelona, and Madrid. The modes of travel I found were either Eurail Pass or Ryan Air. Ryan air however doesnt land at Marseille. Please help. Also if you have used any of these travel methods, kindly state your experience with them. Thanks. Also, could you suggest a travel itinerary, I will be traveling from 14 may to 23 may. Thanks again.

A: cheapest most of the time is by bus however not a desirable mode of travel for many. Ryanair is good (once got a return flight London-Marrakech for 30pounds with them!) however sometimes the airports they use are out of the way, I know for Frankfurt it is. Here is my method for finding the cheapest flights which served me well travelling europe and africa over 3.5yrs. Go to skyscanner.net or jetabroad.com (these are the ones i used that i found the best but there are many) Check the flights you want and it will list all carriers from cheapest to most expensive. Afterwards when you find the cheapest flight, lets say easyjet, you then go to the easyjet site and see how much they charge. I've found flights that were say 30euro on skyscanner and then on the carriers site are much cheaper, like 15euro, and equally its been the other way around. skip Barca, people are rude @rseholes, my least fave place in europe (however sagrada de familia is amazing). Madrid is cool though, its spain, barca is not spain, Catalonians suck. Otherwise a good itinery. Germany is my fave country, many good times had there. Try and add in Heidelberg if you get the chance...its awesome EDIT: Also i'd highly recommend Prague (cheap trains from germany) Prague is a really fun and beautiful city. Bern and lauterbrunnen in switzerland which is on route to marsailles-barca from germany

How many days should I stay in Barcelona when travelling as a tourist? by Nick T Q: I am married, 40 years of age and travelling with my wife.

A: I would recommend 3 days. Great food. Shopping is good--but many stores there are everywhere now. Architecture is the key element in this city. Las Ramblas gets pretty sketchy after midnight, but is enjoyable anytime beforehand. La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell are the "must do's" for this city.

What are the three best places to go in spain? by Max Q: I want to go to three places in spain when Im there, but I've heard so much conflicting info that I really have no idea. Suggestions?

A: barcelona must be the first name on your list. it's the most spectacular city ever, it has sea, hills, history, incredible buildings like torre agbar, sagrada familia, montjuic castle etc, it has lovely walking streets like rambla, plaza catalunya, plaza d'espana... you have to see it! and it's extremely safe, also. then, there is andalusia, which is great: malaga (costa del sol), sevilla, cordoba... safe too. if you want a large beach and white sand you should also visit valencia or alicante if you want a not so secure area but a great great view and peace and quiet you should go to the basque country... san sebastian, bilbao... vitoria gasteiz... lovely cities! i could recommend madrid, but i won't, i personally don't find it that nice. also, many other small cities in the rest of spain, but if you go there for the first time start with barcelona and then other stuff. you'll never forget it!

What are some cool things to do in Barcelona for college students? by Mel Q: My friends and I are going to Barcelona over spring break. I know we're going to the beach and going out at night. Where are some cool places that we should check out? Also where is a good place to stay while we are there?

A: Wow. Where to start? Lets see anything Gaudí starting with La Sagrada Familia, then Parque Güell. Las Rambas. The Gothic District. The Cathedral (they dance outside on Sunday). Picasso museum. The Olympic Park. Miró museum. A short day trip is Monserrat (absolutely incredible view -- if there's no smog), ride the cable car. I remember that there is a harbor known as the Olympic Harbour built for the Olympic games, where there are a ton of restaurants and nightclubs... There's a lot of restaurants and nightclubs on the Ramblas as well. Sorry I can't help you with Hotel info. It was a few years ago that we went.

Does anyone have a list of architects and designers a freshman majoring in architecture should study? by nerd855 Q: I'm going to be studying architecture and I am interested in studying architects. I've been reading magazines and history and whatnot but I'm not sure what major architects I should study up on....Any suggestions?

A: Hi First of all: hope you enjoy the studies. Are you more interested in buildings or landscapes? Why I ask is that Landscape Architecture is a whole field in itself, and the list of significant practitioners could be quite different to those focussing on/who focussed on buildings during their career. I'm not an architect by training myself, but in the heritage management/museum business, so buildings and their environs are very important, and so I've kept and keep a general interest in them. Here a few international names to start with, then just keep looking and asking people (especially when you get to do fieldwork, work placements) as you progress through the course: Joern Utzon (Sydney Opera House), Renzo Piano (Tjibaou Cultural Centre - New Caledonia), I M Pei (the glass pyramid at Louvre), Antonio Gaudi (Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona), Louis Kahn (Salk Institute building; check out the 2004 film by his son Nathaniel Kahn ''My Father the Architect), Julia Morgan (William Hearst's castle) Francis Greenway: convict-turned-architect in early nineteenth-century colonial Australia Norman Foster -the 'giant gherkin' in London, a major HSBC office tower, the new Hong Kong airport among others Try scanning a general biographical -info site for finding more architects and designers: http://architecture.about.com/od/greatarchitects/Famous_Architects.htm Hope that helps.

When is the least expensive time to travel to Spain? by love154100 Q: I'm planning a trip to Barcelona next spring/summer and wondering when is the best time to go there? When is it least expensive? What are some other things to do there than the museums?

A: Between spring and summer I will choose the end of May or early June. Avoid the Holy Week in April. I believe the best time to go is in October or November. The climate is pleasant and is not a touristic period. Mid January is also good is you want some cold-mild climate. In Barcelona take the touristic bus in Plaza Cataluna is the best way to see the major attraction like La Sagrada Familia, Parque Guell, the Olympic City, the Barrio Gotico, the water front, Montduic, etc. If you are traveling with kids try the aquarium and the Zoo, ....and don't miss the Tibidabo Amusement Park with best view of the city. I love Barcelona, family in Spain.

How to spend 3 days in Spain divided between Barcelona and Madrid? by hena a Q: I have three days and one night in Spain. I am traveling via night trains so I can either spend 2 days and 1 night in Barcelona and 1day and no nights in Madrid or spend 1 day and no nights in Barcelona and 2 days and 1 night in Madrid. Any suggestions?

A: In my opinion, both cities merit at least three days. I think you are better off picking one and spending your whole time there. If your travel arrangements force you to see both, then it depends on what you are looking for. Barcelona is better for modern art and architecture (especially the Gaudi buildings), food, beaches, nightlife (in my opinion, but I lived there). Barcelona is more cosmopolitan, and the first language is Catalan, though everyone speaks Spanish. Madrid has better medieval and Renaissance architecture, a nice park near the center. A more historical feel, and more Spanish. The art museums are are some of the best I've seen, after Paris and maybe Florence. Things to do: Museums: Museu Picasso, Fundacio Miro, Museu de la Ciutat (City Museum). The 2nd is a little out of the in the Parc Montjuic, but is the best collection of Miro's work anywhere. Architecture: Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Casa Mila (aka La Pedrera), Casa Batllo, in that order. All these are Gaudi buildings, the first two are must-see, and the 3rd almost is. You can walk down the street Passeig de Gracia from Casa Mila to at least see the outside of Casa Batllo as well as other Art Noveau Buildings.

What are great things to do in Paris and Barcelona, and how can we save money on transportation? by Laura Q: Me and my friends are going to these two locations for spring break. We have someone who speaks french and someone who speaks a little spanish, so we're good there. However, besides the obvious tourist traps, we aren't entirely sure what we want to do - any ideas on great locations to visit and things to do? Also, how is public transportation/what's the best way to save money? Any other tips?

A: In Barcelona, I recommend seeing the buildings by Gaudi which are spread out in the heart of the city, seeing "la sagrada familia" which is a cathedral by the same guy is a must! There is also a very nice large park (can't remember the name of it right now, but if you look on a city map you will see it, on top of a hill). The old town is nice for little shops and having some tapas and a drink. I definitely recommend using the subway and walking a lot, it will be your cheapest bet! Have fun!

The world's mysterious places which you know? by atlanta Q: I have a project in my school about mysterious and historical places, do you know any? for example: machu picchu, sagrada familia etc Thank you

What is the name of the architect of the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona? by Pachy Q:

A: Antoni Gaudi. By the way, he died before he finished his job and now they are trying to finish, but it is taking a while!

The sacred family church (sagrada familia) need facts? by John D Q: basically im doing a project in spanish about la sagrada familia church in barcelona i need some random facts about it such as the height the design of it and all i already have a good lot of its history and Gaudi but if you want to add that into your answer it will probably help you to get best answer Try not to make it too complicated as i am writing the project up in spanish so dont be using really complicated words and terms if you can thanks

A: You should find all you require via these links, including photo's. http://www.sagradafamilia.cat/ (In Spanish) http://www.aviewoncities.com/barcelona/sagradafamilia.htm http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/albums-en/gaudi-sagrada-familia/pages/sagrada-familia-01_jpg.html

Question about the Sagrada Familia? by WeAreOne Q: Im going to Barcelona in March and I want to go to The Sagrada Familia, but Im confused about if the sagrada familia is connected to the Gaudi-House Museum, or if they just put the two together because their both by Gaudi, thanks so much, details would be appreciated.

A: The Gaudi hoeuse is in Parc Guell in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia includes Gaudi's studio that he used while working on the Sagrada Familia. His desk and lunch box etc are still in the studio.

how long does it take to look around sagrada familia? by miss confuzled Q: any idea how long to spend here?

A: I would say about an hour or so. If you are claustrophobic or have trouble getting around you will not want to go up it as there are very narrow stairs. If thats not a problem I recommend going up because you get great views of the city.

Is it better to stay in apt in Las Ramblas or Segrada Familia area? by brightorangeysun Q: I'm going to Barcelona in a few weeks and will be staying at an apt for 3 nights. Segrada Familia is cheaper and is advertised as only 10 mins from Las Ramblas by metro. The EL Raval apt is advertised as only 5 minutes walking distance to Las Ramblas. I heard Las Ramblas is where all the nightlife is. We also plan on taking the tourist bus. Both apts are about ten minutes walking distance from metro stops. WHich would be better to stay at? It's my first time to Barcelona so any advice appreciated. Thanks.

A: Most visitors stay in or near the Ramblas or in the Gothic Quarter just to the east. This is a good base from where you can explore the city's sights by day including Gaudi's masterpiece, the unfinished Sagrada Família Cathedral, see http://www.spain4uk.co.uk/places/barcelona.htm for more details

Best sites to see in Barcelona? by Stephanie99 Q: I am vacationing in Barcelona this September. What are some of the best sites to see? I already plan on going to Guadi's works, such as the Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, etc. It seems like most of the city involves just walking around and exploring (Las Ramblas, Montjuic, Olympic Park, etc) Are there any noteable museums worth visiting? I've heard the Picasso museum, although very popular, isn't necessarily the best art museum there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your help :)

A: You're right about the Gaudí. Take the tourist bus through the Eixample. You pick it up in front of Corte Inglés. It goes through the residential buildings (get off for the Casa Milá. Casa Battló is fairly expensive to tour, but you want to get a good look at the façade at any event.) Then it goes up to Sagrada Familia, which, of course you want to see! Then to Güell. It also passes by the football stadium, which a lot of people want to see. You can hop on, hop off. There are two such bus companies, and they are pretty similar, it's about 20€ pp., and the Eixample is so spread out that it is really worth the money, and sitting with all the other tourists. Las Ramblas runs from Plaça de Catalunya (Corte Inglés) to the sea (Port Vell), and, of course, you want to walk the whole length...stop in the Market and pick up some treats. Freshest food you can possibly get! They have really nice drinks made from the fruits for a treat. Or, if you want a picnic, or if you are cooking in an apartment, you can stock up. Special museums...and there are TONS! We liked the Miró museum near the Olympic grounds. I have heard that the Picasso museum is stellar, but I was there some thirty years ago, underwhelmed, and we didn't even have it on the itinerary this trip. The Palau Musica: if you want to go tour it, check as soon as you are in town for the schedule. They close, with no predictable reasons, sometimes. If you're at all into Catholicism, or history, the monestary at Montserrat is definitely worth the day trip. The beaches are nice. Walk around the Barrí Gotic. DON'T forget your camera. The chocolate factory was neat...lots of sculptures made out of chocolate. (kinda more fun, than notable, but the gift shop is really tasty!). And the FOOD!!! The freshest seafood anywhere. Just make sure not to order Paella from anyplace that has pictures of three to five different varieties on the sign...those come out of a box. Ask if the paella is "casera". (they might lie, but you have a better shot at the real thing that way.) There's this great little cafe across the Ramblas from the Opera...called Café de la Opera (amazing creativity, there) that serves the best chocolate con churros. And the ice cream is to die for! Walk into one of any number of places in the Ramblas where they make it fresh, on the premesis! If you need any more details ( :) ) email me. I can give you more.

How do you pronounce these words ? by catonahottinroof Q: They are names of places, metro stations etc, in Barcelona : 1) Eixample 2) Montjuïc 3) Casa Battlo 4) Sagrada Familia 5) Passeig De Gràcia 6) Catalunya 7) Jaume I 8) Provenca 9) Diagonal 10) Las Ramblas

A: I would guess according to the regular Spanish pronunciation...but I can't demonstrate by typing, so the best thing to do would be to find a person from Spain to pronounce these words for you where you can hear them. Spanish from Mexico is different in pronunciation from Spanish from Spain.

Why isn't the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain finished yet? by oideejay Q: I'm doing a project on the Sagrada Familia and I need to know why it isn't finished yet. That's worth like 25% of my grade. A little more information would help also. Thanks :)

A: Is true that the master architect Antoni Gaudi die during the process of construction, but I don't think this is the reason to be unfinished. I believe the principal problem is technology and cost. The concepts of Gaudi are spectacular and requires structural studies that are very difficult to visualize at this moment ( He really needs CAD programs). The cost was also a big problem. Gaudi spend his personal money to built the church and at his last days he was living like a homeless inside the building(and die like a homeless). Another true event is that during the Spanish Civil War a guerrilla enter the building and destroy the plans and models prepared by Gaudi. Some documents remains and they are the bases for continuing the work. If you visit La Sagrada Familia Museum in the basement of the church you can find some of the originals plans and reconstruction models.

Can anyone help me translate this into spanish? by JL Q: Barcelona I will arrive at Barcelona and check into a hotel. Take a long rest from the flight and then head out to the Gothic Quarter. I will then go to this church called La Sagrada Familia. After that I will go back to my hotel and sleep until the next morning. Then the following day I will visit Montjuïc, this amazing and beautiful park. After that I will buy a couple of souvenirs and pack my bags to get ready to go to Valencia. *Can you please use your own knowledge and not internet resources, Please thank youu =)

A: Hi!I´m from Argentina,so I´ll use MY knowledge,no Google Translator: Barcelona: Llegaré a Barcelona y me registraré en un hotel.Tomaré un largo descanso del viaje y despues saldré a la Zona Gótica.Después ire a la iglesia llamada "La Sagrada Familia".Después de eso,volveré al hotel y dormiré hasta la próxima mañana.Al día siguiente,visitaré Montjuïc(?),un increible y hermoso parque.Después de eso voy a comprar algunos souvenirs,y armaré mis valijas para ir a Valencia. Good luck!

Is it better to stay in apt in Las Ramblas or Segrada Familia area? by brightorangeysun Q: I'm going to Barcelona in a few weeks and will be staying at an apt for 3 nights. Segrada Familia is cheaper and is advertised as only 10 mins from Las Ramblas by metro. The EL Raval apt is advertised as only 5 minutes walking distance to Las Ramblas. I heard Las Ramblas is where all the nightlife is. We also plan on taking the tourist bus. Both apts are about ten minutes walking distance from metro stops. WHich would be better to stay at? It's my first time to Barcelona so any advice appreciated. Thanks.

A: As brightorange has said, both places are well communicated and it's easy to walk everywhere. the nightlife goes around those areas, but Las Ramblas are crowded night and day , (take care of your wallet!) and you can go walking to the beach, and everywhere but the Sagrada Familia is a more peacefull place. Personally I prefer the Sagrada Familia because it's not as much touristic as the Ramblas but there's no place to feel the life of the city as the Ramblas.

How has the Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi structures influenced Barcelona? by TheRussianRepublican Q:

A: They are the most famous, but I enjoyed park Guell the most. Also la Rambla with all the artists is nice I found Gaudi structures a little bit story book for my taste.

How do you say "...and it was very big" in Spanish? by fruitcake004 Q: I'm mentioning the Sagrada Familia in my spanish homework, but I need to describe it. I know that "very big" is something like "muy grande" but I'm unsure of the "it was" part. Help please? Thanks! :)

A: ..."Y era muy grande"

How do you get to play famous organs in Spain? by Colin K Q: Hey, I'm going to Spain in April, and I'm a teenage organist and i want to play some organs while i'm over there. I'm going to 1. Sevilla Cathedral 2. Barcelona Cathedral 3. La Sangrada Familia I know these organs are well protected and hard to get to play. I know i can beg the church a lot, but any other suggestions???

A: If you really want to make an attempt you would probably start with something like the Patrimonio Nacional or write directly to the Cathedrals in question. I'm not sure they have installed an organ in Sagrada Familia, yet. It's mostly unfinished inside. I would think the Organ would be one of the last things to go in. If you want to play a really beautiful one, go to Granada. http://flickr.com/photos/susan_payer/1208156283/in/set-72157601628293465/ http://flickr.com/photos/susan_payer/1209020210/in/set-72157601628293465/ I'm not sure if anyone can just go in and do that, though. I've never researched it, but that seems a bit unlikely.

How has the Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi structures influenced Barcelona? by TheRussianRepublican Q:

A: There are large traffic snarl ups caused by the dozens of buses of tourists waiting to unload and pick up their precious cargo. It is a real problem around the Sagrada Familia. It is also a fact that some people go to Barcelona just to see Gaudi's buildings and this brings money to the city. And what Chris says. .

What sort of traveler are you? by Turniton6 Q: Given the opportunity to travel in Europe (or elsewhere) for 2 weeks, are you the sort of person that has to see the big sights -Eiffel Tower, Leaning tower of Pisa, La Sagrada Familia, Colosseum etc and therefore do the 2 week blitz tour ? or are you quite happy to spend 2 weeks discovering more of the social culture at a leisurely pace, with more off the beaten track visits and more time spent talking to people?

A: Hi Turniton, I,m happy to spend the 2 weeks discovering more of the social culture at leisure, with most of the time spent meeting and talking to new people .....and more 'off the beaten track' visits. If I managed to stumble across some of the big sights, all well and good, but I would have had fun nonetheless.

How to say this in Spanish? by Mizuki Q: How would I say, " Many people visit these buildings to photograph them. The most famous of Gaudi's work is the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Gaudi likes to use bright colors and odd designs on his buildings to draw attention. "

A: Spanish version would be something like: Mucha gente visita estos edificios para fotografiarlos. El trabajo mas famoso de Gaudi es el “Sagrada Familia” en Barcelona. A Gaudi le gusta usar colores brillantes y diseños extraños en sus edificios para atraer la atención.

What is the name of the type of arch Antonio Gaudi used when making his wire model of the Sagrada Familia? by Gregory K Q: There is a technical name of an arch that is made to handle its maximum load. Gaudi mapped these by hanging string and adding weights to the line and photographed them to coordinate the arches strength based on its span.

A: It's called a funicular structure. It's the form where only pure compression exists in the structure, and this is beneficial because masonry is very strong under compression but very weak under tension. Hooke said, "as hangs the flexible line, so but inverted will stand the rigid arch." This is because no link in a chain can exert anything except tension on any other link in the chain. It has no mechanism to push another link (or resist bending between links), so the form it creates is one of pure tension. The inverted form is therefore a pure compression form.

Bernardo Gaudi was the architect for which of the following churches? by Norma Caldera Q: A. Sagrada Familia B. Chartes Cathedral C. San Vitale D. Mount-Saint-Michel

A: A Gaudi was a Catalonian architect and much of his work was marked by the four passions of his life: architecture, nature, religion and his love for Catalonia. He meticulously studied every detail of his creations, integrating into his architecture a series of crafts, in which he himself was skilled, such as ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork forging and carpentry. If you've seen his work you know what I'm talking about...amazing! Sagrada Família, is one of the most visited monuments in Spain. Between 1984 and 2005 seven of Gaidi's works were also declared World Heritage Sites.

Could someone translate this from English to Spanish? by Mariah Brock Q: We arrived in Barcelona where my family bought a hotel room. Then we walked to the Parc Güell where we visited the Gaudi monuments. After eating lunch we decided to go to the Picasso Museum. We took a taxi to see buildings that go by the name of “La Pedrera”, “Casa Batlló”, and “Sagrada Familia”. When the clock turned 7 we went on a walk down Passeig de Grácia and went window-shopping for presents to give to people back home. At 9:30 we ended the day by visiting the “Magic Fountains of Monjuic” to see the lights and music and water.

A: Llegamos en Barcelona donde mi familia compró una habitación de hotel. Entonces anduvimos al Parc Güell donde visitamos los monumentos de Gaudi. Después de almorzar decidimos ir al Museo de Picasso. Cogimos un taxi para ver edificios que se llaman "La Pedrera", "Casa Batlló", y "Sagrada Familia". Cuando el reloj giró 7 pasamos un pasa por Passeig de Grácia y fue mirar los escaparates para presentes a dar a personas en casa. En 9:30 terminamos el día visitando el "Fuentes Mágicas de Monjuic" ver las luces y la música y el agua.

What to do in Barcelona over 3 days? by GetFeisty Q: I'm going for 3 days at the end of the month. Does anyone know Barcelona well? What should I visit? I know about: La Sagrada Familia, and other Gaudi buildings, Park Guell, Las Ramblas, Camp Nou, Picasso mueum, Tibidabo/Olympic area, Maremagnum... What I really want to know are 1) the less known gems (either touristy or for partying) that get missed. 2) good pubs (not much of a clubber) Thanks in advance. And the best beach, too.

A: If you don't mind taking the train out of the City for a day, you should go to Montserrat...or you could tour a winery in the nearby villages. In the city, walk down Las Ramblas and visit La Boqueria (sp?). Walk through the maze of streets in the Gothic Quarter, there are some neat shops and great architecture to view. You'll find that 3 days is not enough to spend in Barcelona. It is a beautiful city. The people are friendly and helpful. The public transportation (metro, buses, etc.) is excellent. Have a great time.

What are your personal “7 wonders” that YOU have seen or visited? by cameltoelover601 Q: They can be man-made or natural ... (And you can’t say your child!!) MINE (in no particular order): 1.La Sagrada Familia (Barcelona) 2.Sydney Harbor 3.Hong Kong Harbor 4.Mammoth Cave (Kentucky) 5.Great Barrier Reef (Australia) 6.Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Bangkok) 7.Badlands National Park (South Dakota)

A: My personal seven wonders are, and not in any order except for the last entry are: 1. The Grand Canyon - never actually seen in person but such an amazing place 2. The San Juan Islands - off the coast of Washington State - lived on Orcas Island as a child - by far the most beautiful place on earth 3. The Great Pyramids of Egypt - never seen, but would love to 4. The Smithsonian Institute - never been there, however I know what splendid information it holds 5. The Atlanta Botanical Gardens - been there, by far the most captivating natural museum holding the rarest of beauty this earth has to offer - I have EVER visited 6. The Northern Lights - never seen in person and my ultimate and seventh wonder is: 7. The evening sunset on the beach at Maderia in Florida

What is the name of the church which has been under construction for over 400 years? by GSP Q: I remember watching a piece on TV [Discovery Channel??] several years back about a church in Europe which has been under construction for 400 years. The architects have added layer over layer and it has survived the world wars. It is known for its spires and architectural uniqueness. I vaguely remember it to be in Riga, Latvia. I am unable to find it now on internet searches. Sagrada Família, Barcelona, Spain has been under construction for 100 years, buy I doubt this is the church I am looking for. Although it has had several phases and re-designs the Sagrada has revivalist neo gothic architecture, and the first layer is still being consturcted. The church I am looking for clearly had multiple layers of designs added generation after generation.

A: The "Ulmer Münster" (Ulm Minster), a Protestant Minster in Ulm / Germany, the tallest church in the world, had its foundation stone laid in 1377, the works on building the church having been completed in 1890. That makes 523 years. It was planned as a gothic cathedral; the upper part and the steeple however are Neo-Romantic, (German Neo-Romantic artists adored contemporary British Neo-Gothic, also known as "Gothic Revival". The upper part of the Minster therefore is both. The style is responsible for the slim tower). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulm_Minster

What should I go to see in Barcelona? by oohgravy Q: I've been before and seen the Sagrada Familia, the Nou Camp, the Arc de Triomphe, the Ramblas, the magic fountain and Park Guell. But I have a day to use up while waiting for a connection and want to see something new

A: The Cathedral (note that Sagrada Família is not the cathedral, as most tourist wrongly think), it is in the Gothic Quarter, which is worth a visit. The church of Santa Maria del Mar, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Palau de la Música Catalana. Take a guided tour, you will learn a lot of the history of Catalonia. Hospital de Sant Pau. Mountain of Tibidabo. Take the "blue tram" and then the funicular to reach the top of the mountain. You can also take the Bus Turístic, the hop-on hop-off bus, so that you can see many unkonwn districts of Barcelona

why sagrada Familia is not completed yet? by lolifofo Q: Sagrada Familia is a cathedral in spain.

A: The Catholic church won't turn loose with the money.. They have it but won't let loose P

How tall is La Sagrada Familia? by oideejay Q: I need some facts about La Sagrada Familia like how tall it is, and other things.

A: I'm not sure how many details you need, but look below at the Wikipedia link. But I guess it's 170 meters tall: >>The central tower of Jesus Christ is to be surmounted by a giant cross; the tower's total height (170 m) will be one metre less than that of Montjuïc, as Gaudí believed that his work should not surpass that of God.<< (Also a great tune by the Alan Parsons Project from their "Gaudi" album.)

What are suggestions for good things to do in Barcelona and Southern France? by shakeyourpapaya Q: I'm going to Barcelona at the beginning of August with my brother. We want to make it up to Southern France at some point, but don't really have any ideas as to what we want to do. He's 24 and I'm 17, so we are looking for more fun stuff compared to a lot of museums, etc. Already on our list are the Sagrada Familia and the Picasso museum.

A: in Barcelona definitely hit up Parque Guell. It's a park designed by Gaudi and it's so gorgeous. Pack a picnic and a bottle of wine and you'll be set! Also, if you have the chance, try to go to a FC Barcelona soccer game. I don't even like sports, and I went and it was so phenomenal. Also, if you're looking to go out during the night, head to Las Ramblas... very entertaining with many different bars to head to. There are so many different things to do, I'm sure you'll have a ton of fun!

What is the difference between a temple & a cathedral? by it's me! Q: For example, they call the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona a temple. I thought it was a Catholic cathedral. I've known that Hindus and Masonites call their places of worship, temples. Can someone explain about Sagrada Familia?

A: Mormons have a Temple which is believed to be a Holy place of God. They also have churches which they worship in. I think cathedrals are more of a regular place of worship.

How many will the Sagrada Familia seat? by Lauren Q: How many could/can pray at the Sagrada Familia? It's for my Architecture essay, so please post any sources you have used. Any interesting facts would also be welcome!! :)

A: Why don't you have a look at the Sagrada Familia website where you'll find all sorts of interesting information about this church. It only took a few seconds to look up on Google, less time than it took you to type out your question: http://www.sagradafamilia.cat/sf-eng/?lang=0

how far is Sagrada familia from Las Ramblas? by Nena Q: We're wanting to book at MH apartments which says its near Sagrada Familia. How far is that from Las Ramblas? or can you recommend any other apartments?

A: It's about 2 miles (3.2 km). From there, a quick hop on the Metro L2 to Passeig de Gracia, and either walk half a mile to Placa de Catalunya at the top of las Ramblas, or transfer to the L3 with 3 stops on las Ramblas, and you're there. By metro, it's not much time at all. The metro runs until midnight weekdays, 2 on Friday, and all night Saturday.

What does it say on the door of the passion facade of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona? by chrisryalluk Q: I've spotted the word Jesus :) but am curious as to what else it says on the door. Anyone who can read Spanish better than me may be able to work out some of the words from the many photos people have taken: http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=Sagrada+Familia+door&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-500&x=wrt Many thanks.

A: Hello there. Actually, the writing on the passion façade is in Catalan. The national and official language of our region of Spain. It would take a very long time to type everything that it says and it'd be a good 5 or 6 paragraphs. But the major things that people point out are "Jesus" and "Què és la veritat?" the first one of course says Jesus and the second says What is the truth? Those are the only things of significance on the door. The rest of the words repeat themselves. A lot of them are names. It says "What are they going to say?" a couple of times. And that's about it. Hate to burst your bubble, but it's nothing of importance.

What is the best way to make a model of a church (la sagrada familia)? by yazmin10a Q: The Sagrada Familia is this amazing looking church in Barcelona and my partner and I have to to make a model of this church. Please help if you have any ideas!
