"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Girona: Here I Come

Riverside area of Girona from Wikipedia
Starting to get super psyched about my upcoming cruise from Rome to Rome. I will visit Palermo, Sicily, Tunisia, Barcelona, Monte Carlo and Portofino ... back to Rome. (I know I have mixed up countries and states, but this is how I think of them.) As I have been to Barcelona twice in the last 3 years, I plan to go to Girona, Figueres and the Dali Museum. Don't get me wrong. I love love love Barcelona, but this time I want to venture out and how better to do it than on a Holland America ship tour. 

Above is a photo from Girona, Spain. Looks absolutely amazing! Girona Cathedral sounds awesome too. More information from wikipedia can be found here.

  1. Unfortunately my tour to Girona, Figueres and the Dali Museum was canceled. I have to assume it was because it was the 1st of May, May Day, and most everything was closed in Europe. I attempted to go to the National Museum of Catalunya but it was closed. I have a great time walking around Barcelona instead. I came across some streets I had never been on before and revisited the Cathedral. Great day as usual. Way too crowded though!
