Culture and Architecture

Barcelona is a city steeped in culture and history, so if it’s some sight-seeing you’re after then you’ve come to the right place. Barcelona is most famous for the fantastic architecture of Antonio Gaudi, whose building are scattered all around the centre of the city. The most famous and impressive can be seen along Passeig De Gracia where you will find La Pedrera and Casa Batlló . Or head to the Parc Guell which is a gorgeous parc designed by the man himself. However the most impressive of Gaudi´s works is arguably the Sagrada Familia, the huge, still unfinished temple you can’t fail to be humbled by such an imposing and ambitious project, the detail on the exterior walls is just staggering, but beware, if you are scared of heights don’t be tempted to climb to the top of the turrets.

Other than Gaudi, Barcelona does offer a lot in terms of architectural brilliance. The Gothic Cathedral in the heart of the Gothic quarter is a must-see. Just wandering around Barcelona you will come across a feast of beautiful buildings, and also get off Las Ramblas, there is so much more to see just 2 minutes either side of this famous street.
