Top sights in Barcelona

The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a breathtaking seaside city known for its Gothic architecture, historical and religious landmarks, and world-class Catalan food. Rich in culture, Barcelona is a city that embraces its origins – with many of its popular attractions including La Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and Casa Botlle, now deemed UNESCO World Heritage Sites – while welcoming modernity and change. Visit a museum or two in the day, and then spend the rest of the night drinking and dining to your heart’s content.

La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia is a name that is known all over the world as it is Spain’s most visited monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Designed by Antoni Gaudi, and arguably one of his most famous works, this minor basilica is known for its breathtaking architecture. The basilica, still unfinished to this day, is located in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Spain and is visited by millions of tourists yearly.

Park Guell

Another design by the famous Antoni Gaudi, Park Guell is one of the largest green spaces in Barcelona, spanning 17 hectares. Taking inspiration from a fairy tale, Gaudi decorated the park with mosaics forming dragons, animal figures and other magical geometric shapes. Since its opening in 1922, Park Guell has become one of Barcelona’s most famous attractions. Like La Sagrada Familia, another one of Gaudi’s masterpieces, the park has since been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

What was originally the home of the Mila family, Casa Mila is now known as La Perdera (“the stone quarry”) and is now used for many things: a tourist landmark, a cultural center that hosts a variety of events, and conferences, a commercial space, anda residential area with rented apartments available inside the building. In 1984, Casa Mila was also declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hola Barcelona Travel Card
Travelers can use all bus lines and subways throughout Barcelona within 48 hours after activating the pass, but it gets a bit tricky when exchanging the pass at the station. Because the counter is not open 24 hours, you have to wait in the morning. It can be seated all over the city from the city center to the Olympic port without any problems.
