Declared as a World Heritage Site, this is one of the most beautiful parks and another of the must-see places in Barcelona. It is a huge park designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí, which surprises all visitors with its sculptures, fountains and buildings inspired by the undulating forms of nature.
One of the most famous images of the park and one of the typical Barcelona souvenirs is the “Escalinata del Dragón”, a large staircase with a fountain and the famous dragon sculpture.
Other interesting places in the park are the Sala Hipóstila, the Casa del Guarda, the Pórtico de la Lavandera and the Jardines de Austria.
Basílica Sagrada Familia
One of the best things to do and visit in Barcelona is definitely the unfinished masterpiece of the architect Antoni Gaudí.
Both the exterior and the interior are a true marvel and a work of art, nothing comparable to other churches in the world. On the outside, the three façades dedicated to the Nativity, the Passion and the Glory of Jesus stand out, as well as the towers that will reach 172 sqm when the monument is finished.
Visiting hours: every day from April to September from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, March and October it closes at 7:00 pm and the other months at 6:00 pm.
Located on Paseo de Gracia and declared as a World Heritage Site, you will be impressed at first sight by its spectacular façade inspired by the forms of nature.
In addition to enjoying its exterior, we recommend you visit the interior, full of magic and fantasy thanks to its undulating forms, the courtyard of lights and the rooftop full of chimneys.
It is interesting to take the virtual reality audio-guide that will take you back to the past, when the architect, commissioned by the wealthy businessman Josep Batlló, began the remodelling of this old house until it became an icon of world architecture.
At more than 500 meters above sea level, you will find Tibidabo, where you can spend a fun day at the amusement park. Opened in 1899, this park is the oldest in Spain and offers all kinds of attractions.
As well as observing Barcelona from the highest point, you can visit the beautiful neo-Gothic Temple of the Sacred Heart and climb to the tenth floor of the Collserola Tower for excellent panoramic views of the city.
