"Painting of Heaven" from La Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona

We visited two cathedrals in Barcelona, and while the sensation of awe was certainly more palpable at Catedral de Barcelona, the astonishing beauty of La Sagrada Familia cannot be understated. The cathedral is still about 50 years from completion but there's so much that's done so well that it really doesn't feel like a work in progress.

Barcelona, by the way, is a place where you really want a wide lens. The city begs to be shot wide - I had the Canon 8-15mm on almost the entire time I was there.
