La Sagrada Familia
Antoni Gaudí’s stamp is present all over the Catalonian capital city, with La Sagrada Familia being a prime example. Construction on Gaudí’s design for the giant basilica started in 1882 and still remains an ongoing project. Its 3 different facades that represent the life and teachings of Jesus Christ have been designed so exquisitely that the basilica attracts thousands of visitors each year wishing to bask in its beauty.
This is Barcelona’s most famous street to walk down as it cuts through the heart of the city and so is often the first landmark visitors identify with the destination. Walking along this symbolic street, you will come across many landmark buildings like the greatest theatre of Barcelona’s opera, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the famous Boqueria Market.
Another of Gaudi’s masterpieces, this park encompasses a unique landscaped world of mosaic features, twisted stonework columns and winding pathways. It is the perfect spot for romantic strolls with your partner or capturing the picture-perfect shot with your friends.
