Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces

Antoni Gaudi was Spanish architect from Barcelona, whose free-flowing works were greatly influenced by nature. Gaudi was born on June 25, 1852, and took to architecture at a young age. His main weapons were imagination, intuition and mental calculation. He was not sociable, moreover he was even closed. He didn’t have close friends, that’s why a lot of circumstances of his life stay faded. La Sagrada Familia is definitely his main masterpiece, but in this article we will discuss most of them.
