To the seekers, the lovers, and the poets celebrating Valentine's Day in Barcelona - You've reached Gaudi's heart, it is beautiful, it is fragile, yet it is the pinnacle of existence, where truth, love, and order coexist.
“If I have all knowledge, and have not love, I am nothing.” Gaudi must have longed for the warmth of a familiar touch, the lull of a loving voice, while breathing his last. Unrecognized by the very Barcelona he fathered, Gaudi slipped into his 'forever sleep' namelessly. Though the deities of love never caressed his fate, the Barcelona left behind by 'God's architect' will always be a true symbol of Love. Is there truly a better place to celebrate love than this?
