Sagrada Familia: a tour de force of imagination, the Sagrada Familia is Antoni Gaudi's design church had its first stone laid in 1882, and is expected to finally be completed by 2026, 100 years after Gaudi's death. More than 100 plant and animal species can be found sculpted in the stone of the church, along with two main columns supported by sculpted turtles.
La Rambla: a wide pedestrian street that includes multiple activities, day and night, and offers a voyeur's delight. This may be the best place to enjoy the Spanish paseo (stroll) ritual.
Barcelona Cathedral: with origins from 1298, the Gothic cloister and Baroque chapels pay homage to Spain's religious history. As a living monument, Barcelona Cathedral still functions as the hub of Barri Gotic's religious movement.
Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC): housed in the Palau Nacional, and containing some of the most important medieval art collections in the world, this museum's highlight is the Romanesque art section with painted interiors of Pyrenean churches from the 11th and 12th centuries.
Parc Güell: originally conceived in 1900 as an English-style garden city, Parc Güel initially failed as an elegant, artistic villa with gardens and public spaces. The city of Barcelona reopened it in 1926 as a public park.
La Pedrera: a fantastic, out-of-this world apartment block that contains some of the most emblematic works of Gaudi. Every detail shows the visionary genius of Gaudi, and it has been restored to its former glory.
