A city decorated by Gaudi
When visiting Barcelona, visitors should be sure to take some time to discover some of the many buildings designed by one of the city's most famous former residents, Antoni Gaudi.
For example, the Basilica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia is a breathtaking Roman Catholic church designed in the 1800s. It has been under construction since 1883 and the expected completion date is between 2026 and 2028.
This long-term construction means that even holidaymakers who have been to Barcelona before will want to pay a visit to La Sagrada Familia to see what dramatic changes have been made since they last saw the structure.
Elsewhere in Barcelona, tourists can see other famous works by Gaudi, including the intricate lamps in Placa Reial, Casa Vicens in the Gracia district and Casa Batllo, which is almost entirely covered in mosaic tile work and is definitely worth a tour of the extraordinary interior.
Meanwhile, the Park Guell is a magical outdoor display of Gaudi's work, featuring twisting paths and intriguing structures with colourful designs and organic shapes.
…And so much more!
Whether you're looking to do a bit of shopping, find a great place to eat or simply enjoy the buzz of the city during your trip to Barcelona, you will want to head to Las Ramblas.
A series of tree-lined streets stretching for over a kilometre, Las Ramblas is a bustling area full of street performers, musicians and caricaturists, as well as countless stalls selling everything from hand-made goods, jewellery and flowers, through to fresh fruits and vegetables, sweets, drinks and even pets!
At the lower end of Las Ramblas, you'll find the marina and the Monumento a Colon – a 60-m tall tribute to Christopher Columbus.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main city, a trip to Montjuic could be the perfect choice. A flat-top hill that looks out over the metropolis, it is home to the beautiful Palau Nacional, the National Art Museum of Catalonia. Visitors can also spend some quiet time exploring the beautiful parks and gardens of the area.
What's more, Barcelona offers a plethora of gastronomic delights, with options including tapas, amazing pastries and, of course, many fine red wines. With so many tantalising options to choose from, it'll be difficult to decide what to taste next!
