Antoni Gaudi's "Must-See"
Architecture & Attractions
Antoni Gaudi is Barcelona's most internationally renowned architect. It's worth a visit to the city just to see his unique "masterpieces" - including the following architectural wonders:

Casa Batllo
Casa Milà or La Pedrera
Parc Guell
Sagrada Familia

Casa Batlló
Elaborately decorated with a mosaic of broken ceramic tiles and featuring a gigantic arched dragon-like roof (top photo), this Gaudi "masterpiece" is one of Barcelona's top attractions — and one of its most photographed buildings.

Because of Casa Batlló's unique look, locals refer to the building as Casa dels Ossos (House of Bones) or Casa del Drac (House of the Dragon). At night, it's well worth a visit to see its floodlit facade.

Open daily, except for Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Parc Guell
Whimsical, Magical, Bizarre — just a few words that some people have used to describe Parc Guell. It's a great place hang out and people-watch.

Parc Guell, Barcelona, Spain

Designed by Antoni Gaudi, the park features unique stone structures, brightly-colored tiles, beautiful mosaic designs almost everywhere... and lush landscaping. Gaudi's famous multi-colored mosaic dragon stands in between the double stairway (pictured below).

Visit Gaudi's old home — it's now a museum in the park. For really great views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean, go to the upper terrace level — you can see for miles!

Sagrada Familia is Barcelona's top tourist attraction and its most famous architectural landmark - Barcelona, Spain

Sagrada Familia
Barcelona's Top Attraction

Sagrada Familia is Barcelona's top tourist attraction. Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece (construction began in 1882 and it continues today) is Barcelona's most famous architectural landmark.

As spectacular as it looks during the day, it's even more stunning at night.

The cathedral, a symbol of Barcelona the world over, draws millions of visitors from around the globe every year.

At first glance, the towering temple looks similar to an intricate giant sandcastle (see photos above and below) — what do you think?

Casa Milà  or
La Pedrera
(Passeig de Gracia)

Casa Milà (or Milà House) is also known as La Pedrera. The sculptured architecture is one of Gaudí's most famous residential buildings — and one of Barcelona's top attractions.

Interpretations of the building vary — some say its natural stone facade looks like a series of caves. Others see it as "waves of the sea" and "foam of the waves." Doors and windows look like they were dug out of sand — and surrealistic chimneys dominate the rooftop. Get your camera ready!
