santiago de compostela cathedral.
During a recent trip to Europe, my Mom and I had the opportunity to join the pilgrims’ mass at Santiago de Compostela Cathedral (or St. James’ Cathedral). At the end of the mass, a gigantic botafumeiro (incensory) swings from one end of the cathedral to the other like a pendulum. It weighs over 170 pounds and takes almost a dozen men to get it going.
Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a magnificent piece of architecture designed by Antoni Gaudi.

Hotel Porta Fira, winner of the 2010 Emporis Award, is where my mom and I stayed during our two nights in Barcelona, Spain.
This is the ceiling within the oratory at the Templar’s Convent of Christ. I took so many photographs of this one room, but none of can do justice to the beautiful art within it.

This photo was taken in the Monastery of Santa Maria d’Alcobaça, which is located north of Lisbon. I absolutely loved the monastery’s simple interior and tall arches. It is also on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
The Belém Tower, also known as the tower of St. Vincent, is located in Lisbon, Portugal. My Mom and I had the opportunity to see this UNESCO World Heritage site a couple of weeks ago.
