Not a nice view, that for sure, I also think the privacy issues with workers during the renovation!!. By the way, sometimes the renovations of Churches and Cathedrals looks like are going to take forever. In 2007 when I was in Barcelona I could see the restoration of the Cathedral in process too!. In La Sagrada Familia the interior wasn't completely free of scaffolds neither, so I couldn't get photos like someone may take it in this last couple of years. Maybe this is a reason to come back to Spain in some moment
Another capture of my trip of Madrid. Bullring Las Ventas
I suppose the restoration of a cathedral doesn't happen over-night ... in most cases they took twenty to thirty years to build, and probably with a lot more people working on them back then.
In the case of my building, I pity the builders should they happen to look in my window! (In reality I keep the blinds down when I'm out.)
I promised myself back in 2006 I would go back and see the Sagrada Familia when it was finally finished. Then I moved to Spain. That promise shouldn't be too hard to keep if I stay here.
Ventas is one of the finest examples of what man can do with a few million bricks that springs to my mind, actually. Thanks for sharing!
