The fountain and giant owl intersection was like our home base; if we could get there, we could find the door to our apartment building. You can definitely see a more beachy, Mediterranean flair in a lot of the buildings here.
Inside this next building is a market/grocery store. We came back on the way home to get the makings for sandwiches and a bottle of wine.
And then, we saw it. Kindof hard to miss, don't you think?
The story is that the curved roof is the spine of a dragon, with colorful "scale" tiles, and the turret is Saint George's lance, which he thrust into the dragon's back, killing him and saving Catalonia, which was Gaudi's homeland.
