If you are a tourist in Barcelona, these places are a must during your stay!
Most people who have visited Barcelona agree on one thing: It´s an amazing city! But why is that? What sets Barcelona apart from other European cities? And, what makes it truly breathtaking? Here, I´ll quickly discuss the Gaudi Highlights that define the beauty and intrigue of Barcelona.
Honestly, I believe these are some of Antoni Gaudi‘s most impressive works.
“My boss is not in a hurry” Gaudi used to say this when discussing Sagrada Familia’s construction. Gaudi’s last work of art is still being built – and yet, it’s ready to greet visitors at Carrer de Mallorca, 401.
Inspired by the Legend of Sant Jordi, Gaudí created this masterpiece located in Passeig de Gràcia, 43. Casa Batlló is open to visitors and offers a unique look into the area’s rich cultural history.
Casa Milà (La Pedrera)
Sagrada Familia was Gaudi’s final project, but it wasn’t finished during his lifetime – in fact, it’s still under construction. However, there is another architectural wonder that he did manage to complete, and it is stunning. Full disclosure: that place is Casa Milà. Located in Passeig de Gràcia, 92, it’s the perfect place for selfies and family photos.
While touring Barcelona, you’ll probably want to pick up a souvenir at some point as a token of your incredible trip. However, you might be surprised to find several lizard pieces on display. If you’ve already toured Sagrada Familia, The Gothic, Montjuic, Casa Milà, and Casa Batlló, you’ll notice these pieces are a little unique compared to other shops in Barcelona. Ah-ha! It’s a sign that you’re probably in Park Güell. Located in Carrer d’Olot, 11, you can access the main entry and exit conveniently from the road.
So far, these are my favorite reminders of Gaudi’s work. When you visit Barcelona, we can guide you around his unique influence in our wonderful city!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this piece as much as I enjoyed writing it for you!
