In the construction of the Basilica of the Sagrada Família in Barcelona , red porphyry from Iran, was used as a symbol of the blood of Christ, because of its red colour.

The theme over at dverse is “The music of alliteration, assonance and consonance”, this poem overdoes it a bit!!

    Is this the building that was started by Gaudi way back when? Did you feel any energy coming out of or inside of it? Gaudi was inspired by otherworldly sources, I believe.
