Let’s start with one of the biggest pulls to the city: Sagrada Família. The cathedral is the brainchild of Antoni Gaudí and was started over 140 years ago. Pictures don’t do this justice as it stands proudly in the middle of Barcelona and is a must-see for anyone in the city.
Casa Milà is another Gaudí building that takes center stage in Barcelona. It was initially designed as a family home with apartments to rent at the top of the building. Now, it’s a popular monument in the city that’s found itself on the UNESCO list.
Gaudí’s work is dotted throughout the city, including Casa Batlló. The apartment block was remodeled at the beginning of the 1900s and now has one of the most famous roofs in the world thanks to the giant dragon scales.
No Gaudí experience would be complete without a trip to Park Güell. The incredible park is filled with sculptures and fountains all made from mosaics. The best bit? A trip here offers some of the best views of Barcelona.
