Attractions & Sightseeing

Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia, meaning the Holy Family in Spanish, is considered to be the most modernist church in the world. Sagrada Familia, with its stunning interior construction, has become a symbol of Barcelona, reflecting the splendor of Catalonia. Being the most visited attraction in Spain, it surely is worth visiting it. The columns that hold the internal structure of the basilica are designed as branches of trees. When you walk through the columns, you feel like you are moving through a forest. The towers of the Sagrada Familia can be visited as well. However, the entrance tickets to the towers of the Sagrada Famila are different from the main entrance. It is recommended to book the tickets ahead cause they sell out very fast. From the top of the towers, an amazing view over the entire city of Barcelona can be seen.
The Sagrada Familia is one of the most iconic sights in the whole of Barcelona, and despite the fact that it is still unfinished, construction continues to this very day. From humble beginnings, the imposing church has grown to its impressive height witnessed today by millions of visitors every single year. It is thought that the building is almost 70% finished, and work is currently ongoing on the six towers in the centre. The beginnings of the Sagrada Familia can be dated back to around 1866, with the very first stone towards construction laid on 19 March 1882. The architect is of course the world famous Antoni Gaudi, known for his iconic style and alternative designs. For this reason, the Sagrada Familia looks totally different compared to any other church or cathedral you will see on the planet. The huge popularity of the Sagrada Familia means that queues are likely at any time of the year, so getting online tickets to skip the line is the only way to not wait for hours.

Casa Milà

Located in the Eixample district, where wealthy people used to live in Barcelona, Casa Milà famous for being the last work of the most renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, before he started his famous unending work named La Sagrada Familia. From the outside, the undulating balconies constitute a serie of waves, and each balcony and niches are reflected off in a different, uniquely different style, which is like an indicator of the authenticity and conviction of the architect.
Barcelona is famous for many things, but perhaps the renowned Gaudi is one of the biggest names connected with the city. Of course, this is mainly down to his designs of the hugely imposing and very impressive Sagrada Familia, but that was not his only gift to the city of Barcelona. The Casa Milà is another building designed by the famous Gaudi himself, with construction beginning in 1906, and ending in 1912. Far from just being ‘another building’, the Casa Milà is one to make your jaw drop in terms of the detail and design. The name itself serves from the family for whom the building was designed, the Milà family. They lived on the main floor, and then rented out the rest. Today, Casa Milà remains one of the most interesting structures in Barcelona, and one of the greatest masterpieces of Gaudi’s work.

Park Güell

Renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi has created many masterpieces in his life. However, no doubt, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà and the colorful Park Güell are the most memorable ones among them. Park Güell, whose construction took 14 years, is one of the most touristic attraction points in Barcelona. At the entrance of the park, the stairway leads up to a majestic structure ornamented with columns. The big square serves as a balcony that overlooks Barcelona and the sea. Here, mosaic-covered benches look like waves. The curvy paths forming an unusual walking route are convenient places to enjoy nature during the walk and to understand Gaudi's art.
You cannot visit Barcelona and not immerse yourself in the interesting and historic world of Gaudi. Park Güell is another beautiful nod back to the iconic architect himself. The park’s construction began in 1900, when entrepreneur Eusebi Güell (who the park is named after) joined forces with Gaudi himself. This is not an ordinary park however, because of the architectural design of the buildings, along with the green spaces. Park Güell is a fantastic spot to take a breath of fresh air, in the heart of a busy city. The main entrance (on the southern side) will give you an instant view of the walls and stairs, which are made of rustic stone and tiling in ceramics of various colours. It almost looks like a gingerbread house design, and inside you will find various different buildings and historic sections to explore.

Casa Batlló

The Casa Batlló is one of the most extraordinary constructions in Barcelona. Gaudí was given full artistic freedom and he designed the unconventional facade, unleashing the power of his creativity. Located in Passeig de Gracia Boulevard, in the district of Manzana de la Discordia, Casa Batlló was declared as the Unesco World Heritage in 2005.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the competition between wealthy families was fierce. It was for this very reason that every single family wanted a more opulent and interesting house, one to take the breath away. Casa Batlló certainly managed to fit the bill! Yet another of the wonderful Gaudi’s impressive piece of work, Casa Batlló is a hugely popular tourist hotspot in the heart of Barcelona’s Example district, and receives millions of visitors every single year. Prearranging you trip is a must do, if you want to avoid the huge queues which are often seen outside the attraction, especially during the peak summer months of June to September. The Casa Batllo itself has an almost fairytale look to the outside, capturing the attention of visitors since its’ construction in 1877.
