So pity the way he died, a genius like him should have been easily recognized in the street where he was hit by a tram.

He was also its believed the first person to be killed by a tram. After he was hit while walking home he was not taken for medical treatment due to the 'shabby' clothes he wore and his gaunt body, people thought he was a homeless man. After a few days he was recognised and received treatment but it was too late he died a few days later. Better he is remembered for his architecture legacy.

I visited several of his buildings in Barcelona, including the Sagrada Familia those in Guell Park. I'd love to have the opportunity to visit others.
