The End of Gaudí

To finish my Gaudí admiration : a photo of the Sant Felip Neri church in the Gothic quarter in Barcelona. Gaudí was on his way to this church to do his daily prayers when he was hit by a tram on 7 june 1926 and died three days later.
Almost 12 years later Franco’s followers dropped a bomb on this square to kill at least 20 children.

(to add more drama this square was also the site of executions during the Spanish Civil War)
