The Monastery of Sant Joan de les Abadesses
What really impressed me was what happens to sound in this dark cavernous Romanesque space. It doesn't echo but has an eerie slow fade into nothingness. It seems to go on and on around the space. Wonderful and strange. There was an associated museum with other artifacts from the history of the monastery.
Tonight we have joined Erin, John, Kylie and Austin and are together in an apartment in Barcelona. After our late pizza some of us viewed the Sagrada Familia lit by huge spotlights. Tomorrow will be another bright and hot day in this city of Gaudi, Miro, and Picasso. Kathy
