Three of my favorite places when I visited Spain. It's been 17 years since I was there and the images still remain. The artwork, detail and craftsmanship was stunning. The cable car up to Montserrat is worth the price of admission. The Goya paintings on the domes of Zaragosa's Cathedral are ethereal. I have yet to see anything in the US that comes closes to that kind of craftsmanship and detail. And of course winding up the trip in Barcelona, Gaudi's Sagrada Familia was awe inspiring. Sadly, today they have become tourist traps.

Lots of rock and boulders here with very shallow soil.
Most of the tree roots grow above ground.
Legend has it that pot-growing gnomes
live amongst the roots. I would have to
see it before I could believe such nonsense!
