The unique ceramic chimneys of the Casa Batlló. Behind them are the playful lines of the roof of the building that look like the back of a dragon or a dinosaur. Casa Batlló is one of the masterpieces of the insane, but at the same time genius, architect from Catalonia – Antoni Gaudi. It was designed and built in 1904 for the middle-class family Batlló.

Palacio de Cristal, Madrid

Wandering through Parque de Retiro in Madrid we ran into Palacio de Cristal. Made of steel and glass, this beautiful structure is located on a lake in the heart of the park. The magical trees surrounding it make the scenery like it came out of a fairy tale.
