I LOVE Antoni Gaudi's fantastic art-nouveau architecture in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia, still being built years after Gaudi was run over by a tram, is fantastic. I love all his buildings, and have visited many of them, been on the roof of two - very surrealistic. And Guell Park is great.

Neglected during the Franco era, I discovered these buildings in the 1970s and have visited them many times since.

There are many great things to see in Catalonia - such as Salvador Dali's theater-museum in Figueres, another surrealistic place we visited. Fantastic! Loved that castle next door where his wife Gala lived, with eggs in place of battlements!

Thanks Peter for the trip round the old town. I remember Dreamland when it was at its height. my mum took me to see 'The Girl Can't Help It' at the cinema there in 1957, and I was hooked on rock and roll ever since.
I also stayed in the grand hotel in Cliftonville a lot of years ago and met a bloke I thought I knew in the bar there. He was about 70 and was as bald as a coot. Later that evening i saw him on stage with a wig on and realised it was Dennis Lotis!!! And what a great act he still had - I remembered all his old hits with the Ted Heath band, and afterwards we had a great time reminiscing in the bar again.
