Things Aren't Always What They Seem

08002 Barcelona, Spain
19 Kudos
After spending so much time observing architecture all over the world, I am happy to have picked up a little bit of knowledge here and a little bit there. I can tell a gabled roof from a hipped or a mansard and I know the difference between a parapet and a portico. And, after our visit to Barcelona, I can add faux windows to the list. One day, when we rounded a corner of an interesting part of the city, it didn't take either one of us more than a glance to see that some of the windows on this building looked too good to be true.
