Gaudi gets his own Google Doodle

It would have been Gaudi's 161st birthday this year, and this week, none other than Google has shone its own kind of praise on the crazy-talented Catalan architect, with his very own Google doodle. Google typically re-writes the letters in a funny way, characteristic of the person they are honouring, so this time it's no  different, with different parts of Barcelona and his buildings spelling out the word. Barcelona has 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites, and Gaudi is responsible for 7 of those 9. Take a bow, sir, take a bow.

Cool eh? Recognise them all? If you don't, then there's a very good explanation here.

Fancy a trip to the Catalan Capital to see the sights of Gaudi? BCN Rentals has some great deals on apartment rentals instead of staying in a hotel.
