The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

After arriving in Valencia in the evening, we walked out to get light supper and ran into what appeared to be family event of some type, with the family members all in full traditional dress!

These $10,000 dresses never cease to amaze!
