Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia Basilica in Barcelona is one of its most well-known landmarks and one of Gaudi’s major works, as well as being its most visited church. If you plan to visit, buying your tickets in advance online is highly recommended to avoid long entrance queues and save both time and energy! Furthermore, an audio guide or towers visit can be added at additional charge but is definitely worthwhile!

The Basilica is currently under construction, with completion estimated for 2026. Meanwhile, you can enjoy its picturesque facade and visit its museum that displays drawings, period photographs, ceremonial furniture, and more.

Inside the Sagrada Familia, visitors will have an unforgettable experience as they stroll the cavernous nave, admiring its giant columns that look like ancient trees. Illumination from enormous stained glass windows lends the interior an intimate and warm ambiance, and Gaudi wanted his structure to represent nature by designing its facade with curving lines that give an impression of a forest-like environment.

Guided tours of the Sagrada Familia are an invaluable way to gain more insight into its rich history and architecture, often at lower costs than purchasing tickets individually and often offering priority entry, saving valuable sightseeing time from waiting in long lines.

Park Guell

Antoni Gaudi’s Park Guell, one of Barcelona’s premier attractions, is an artistic and natural masterpiece. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gaudi imagined it as a garden city and designed walkways, pathways, and structures resembling natural forms in his park – but its most stunning feature is undoubtedly its dragon-shaped balcony – it truly stands out as one of its kind and one of its most incredible and unique sights to see in all of Barcelona!

Park Guell can quickly become overcrowded, with long waiting lines leading into its Monumental Core. To avoid crowds and stay calm during this visit, try visiting early in the morning. Skip-the-line tickets can be booked through online booking agencies such as GetYourGuide or Ticketbar, as well as combination tours that include Park Guell.

Lesseps on Line 3 serves Park Guell and from there it is approximately 15 minutes of walking to its entrance on Avinguda del Santuari de la Muntanya; escalators help ease any steep walks up. Bus routes H6 and D40 stop nearby but may take more time due to traffic delays.

City passes can be used to gain free admission to the Monument zone of the park; otherwise tickets can be purchased either at the entrance or online prior to visiting; please be aware that due to limited capacity per hour in this zone it’s wise to book ahead.

Passeig de Gracia

Passeig de Gracia is one of Barcelona’s main streets and the perfect place to shop for high-end designer brands and admires some of Gaudi’s masterpieces listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Modernisme architecture characterises buildings along the Passeig de Gracia. Their organic shapes give these structures their signature look; you can take a walk down this street to enjoy all its stores while not spending a fortune on handbags – there are other places nearby where shopping may be cheaper!

Attractions that require tickets vary depending on the season you visit; Casa Batllo hosts romantic musical evenings in summer, for example.

Other attractions worth seeing in Barcelona are Illa de la Discordia (Island of Discord), Hotel Majestic, Casa Bonaventura Ferrer, and Palau Robert. Palau Robert was once home to a wealthy family but is now home to an eclectic collection of modernist furniture displayed as a museum. There’s even an open-air cocktail bar with incredible views of both Sagrada Familia and its surroundings!

Torre Glories

The Torre Glories, commonly referred to as Barcelona’s iconic skyscraper, stands out even more spectacularly at night thanks to its beautiful array of 4,500 lights that illuminate it with various colors. Designed by Jean Nouvel and becoming an icon of contemporary Barcelona, its lookout on the 30th floor provides breathtaking views over this vibrant city – truly a must-see!

The lookout is open to the public and has been transformed into an engaging multidisciplinary experience, offering visitors a unique ecosystem that connects them to the city through interactive sculpture and multimedia exhibitions. It takes its name from being once part of Barcelona Waters, which is currently home to both its headquarters and DHUB Disseny Hub Museum of Design (DHUB Disseny Hub).

Visitors can visit this building either daytime or nighttime, though daytime views from the lookout tend to become overcrowded quickly if not arrived 15 minutes prior to scheduled visit times.

Once you’ve explored the exhibits on the ground floor, take an elevator up to the 30th floor of the tower for breathtaking views of Barcelona from an altitude of 125 meters – as well as see Tomas Saraceno’s Cloud Cities sculpture!
