Ah, Barcelona, where to start? We did so much in 5 days. I think I will cluster posts by artist/topic instead of a timeline. Welcome to the Gaudí post!
I have discovered that I love Gaudí. I would recommend that if you are in Spain, save the Sagrada Família until after you've seen the rest of Gaudí's work. Everything else pales in comparison. Thus, the order of the Gaudí buildings below is not the order in which we viewed them.
We started with the block of Discord, which includes buildings by Gaudí and others. We did not go inside any of these. Here's Gaudí's Casa Batlló:
One of the courtyards has a stairwell that is quite pretty as well:
