That is one beautiful staircase! And a chapel that looks sort of European.

Beautiful photo! I like to look at all the details old building have... the most incredible thing is to walk on the street, to up at any building and realize that that building that you have walked by many times it's so beautifully build!

Regards from Barcelona.
