Must see places in Barcelona:
Sagrada Família Cathedral
An immense but still unfinished cathedral that has been under construction since 1882, with completion planned for 2026. It is Antoni Gaudí’s best-known work and is visited by 3 million people a year, art critic Rainer Zerbst said of Sagrada Família, "It is probably impossible to find a cathedral building anything like it in the entire history of art."
The park was designed by Gaudí and was originally part of an unsuccessful housing site before it became a public park in 1922. It has gardens and architectural elements. The focal point of the park is the main terrace with a sweeping view over Barcelona.
Mercado de la Boqueria
A large public market and one of the city’s foremost landmarks. Enjoy the colorful explosion of local and exotic high quality products and have a meal at the market.
A renowned building designed by Gaudí that comes from his naturalist phase. The ground floor has unusual ornamental stone work, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work. There are few straight lines, and much of the façade is decorated with colorful mosaics made of broken ceramic tiles.
It was proclaimed a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2005.
This famous street in central Barcelona is popular with tourists and locals alike. The fun street is known for local artists and musicians. It stretches for 0.75 miles connecting Plaça de Catalunya with the Christopher Columbus Monument.
Known as La Pedrera, it was the last private residence designed by Gaudí. At the time, it was controversial because of its undulating stone facade, twisting wrought iron balconies and windows. Several structural innovations include a self-supporting stone front, columns and floors free of load-bearing walls, an underground garage and sculptural elements on the roof.
This is the center of the old city of Barcelona and retains a labyrinthine street plan, with many small streets opening out into squares. Take time to see the remains of the squared Roman Wall as well as the historic Barcelona’s Cathedral.
One of the most famous beaches in Barcelona and the closest one to the city center, Barceloneta Beach is known for its sandy beach and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. It’s perfect for a swim after a long day exploring the city.
Camp Nou Stadium
This is the home stadium of Barcelona’s soccer team with a capacity of just under 100,000, this is the largest stadium in Spain as well as Europe. The impressive complex offers tours and houses a museum, making it a must see place for all soccer fans.
Montjuic is a broad shallow hill with a relatively flat top overlooking the harbor. Here you can see the 1919 Magic Fountain with its lights, music and water shows throughout the year. The Poble Espanyol, the Caixaforum Museum and the D’art de Catalunya National Museum are all worth a visit too.
