Delve into the Picasso Museum or Miró Foundation. Uncover the exuberant atmosphere of Barcelona in a collection of famous sights, including the Gothic Quarter, the Spanish Village and Gaudi’s rare architectural genius with his incredible unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia.
Post-sightseeing, take a shady spot in one of Barcelona’s numerous cafés for a dose of Las Ramblas’ charming evening atmosphere of street performers and social city life.
Uncover the architectural legacy of one of Barcelona’s most famous sons – Antonio Gaudi.
Antonio Gaudi was an architect known for his creative, surreal, and individualised style of Catalan Modernism, and Barcelona was his canvas.
Examples of his work includes a collection of Modernist houses on Paseo de Gracia, including the Casa Batlló and Casa Mila (La Pedrera). But his crowing achievement is the Church of Sagrada Familia, which he designed in 1882. Famously known as the ‘unfinished cathedral’, its construction has been plagued by delays from the outset, but it’s finally nearing completion.
Stroll through Gaudi’s Park Güell, a hillside garden suburb fashioned after the English model of a ‘Garden City’.
