Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Spain! Its unique architecture, its artistic heritage, its historical monuments make it a destination to visit -at least- once in your life. Well, then you’ll want to come back!

Gaudí is … everywhere and you will find him in front of you at almost every step. Barcelona has witnessed tremendous tourism growth especially since hosting the 1992 Olympic Games.

The bad thing is that there are so many things to see and do that … you won’t have so many days for all of them. That’s why we gathered the most important!

What you should definitely see
La Rambla
It’s the most tourist spot in the city. But don’t forget. You will also be a tourist. So you will spend many hours in La Rambla, aνendless pedestrian street that leads from Plaza Catalunya to the sea. Just be careful. There are many thieves there…

Sagrada familia
There is no case to go to Barcelona and not see the giant Roman Catholic Sagrada Familia! Not because it is Barcelona’s most famous tourist attraction, but because once you go there, you will understand why it is the No1 attraction with millions of visitors every year. It was designed by Gaudí, but he failed to fulfill his noble wish, so sculptors and architects continue working on the project until today!

An excellent 14th-century building with 28 side chapels with magnificent baroque temples. Located in the heart of the city, in the Barri Gotic area.

Picasso Museum
One of Barcelona’s most famous sights, it is housed in three medieval palaces. The exhibits are divided into three categories: painting, engraving and ceramics. The Picasso Museum attracts more than 1 million visitors a year!

Parc Guell
Another work by Gaudí. Park Guel is located on the hill “el Carmel”. The two mushroom-like buildings, the staircase with colorful mosaic lizard that leads to the hall with 100 columns and at the top of the hall, a plateau with stunning views over city.

On the southwest side of the city, the Montjuic hill is one of the most characteristic spots in the city. Monzwick Hill with the Olympic Stadium was the heart of the 1992 Olympics. Walk to Placa d’Espanya and don’t miss the Joan Miró Foundation and the National Museum of Art of Catalonia.

Palau de la Generalitat
The Parliament of Catalonia, with Gothic elements. On its facade there is the statue of St. George fighting with the dragon. Sant Jordi is the patron saint of Barcelona.

Camp Nou
It doesn’t matter if you watch football or not. It doesn’t matter if you support Barcelona. It doesn’t matter if you know well who is Lionel Messi or not (considered to be the top player in the world). You will go to the tour of Camp Nou. When you go and see the queue for the tour, you’ll understand why it’s one of the must-do things in Barcelona.! In the end, besides Messi (in case you didn’t know him) you will also want to know who will be the next president of the team, since there are problems with the actual.
