Attractions in Barcelona

The Sagrada Família Cathedral (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005) is one of the most imposing structures in the world and is considered one of the greatest masterpieces by the artist and architect Antoni Gaudí. The cathedral has been under construction since 1882, and it should be completed on the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death in 2026.

Park Güell has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. In 1900 Güell, Gaudí's patron, commissioned the architect to build a complex based on the model of an English garden city. Nature and living should form an equal symbiosis in the park. Even if only a few buildings were realized, Gaudí implemented the park in a masterly manner. The garden consists of a magical tangle of paths, arcades, viaducts, walls and bridges.

Casa Milà has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984 and one of the most beautiful buildings of Modernism, a highlight of Antoni Gaudí's work. The building is also nicknamed "La Pedrera" - the quarry. It owes this name to its irregular facade with the many protrusions and its massive shape.
