Barcelona

Barcelona is a welcoming and cosmopolitan city. Artistic currents from across the ages have resulted in a magnificent declaration in this city through the remnants of great Roman, Gothic and Modernist legacies, the last of which is represented by Gaudí. Wherever you are in the city, there is always something to see: gems of Modernist and contemporary architecture, markets, treasures from the ancient Roman and medieval cities, parks...

Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló stands at number 43 on Passeig de Gracia. It was a construction project for the textile businessman, Josep Batlló, who hired Antoni Gaudi in 1904 to fully remodel a building and convert it into his new residence in Barcelona. Although Batlló's first idea was to demolish the existing building, Gaudi convinced him to keep the original structure from 1875 and remodel both the facade and its interior. It was a coincidence that the original building was the work of Emili Sala i Cortés, a teacher of Gaudi's at the Escola Tècnica Superior d'Arquitectura de Barcelona.

To show and convey his ideas, Gaudi soon understood that simple plans and drawings would be impossible and he started to work on scale models made from plaster. He created them until they obtained the desired volumes and figures. This methodology, and the innovative nature of his proposals, made the administrative processes highly complex, resulting in the paradox of the construction licence failing to be granted until 1912, six years after renovations were completed.

Casa Milá / La Pedrera

Known as La Pedrera due to its rustic, rocky appearance, Casa Milá is an amazing modernist building created by Antoni Gaudi between the years 1906 and 1912. This peculiar building, which is situated on the Passeig de Gracia, reflects the artistic peak of Gaudi when he was working on different projects in the city. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

Like other Gaudi creations, La Pedrera is a stunning building that will amaze visitors, especially with its roof terrace.

Tibidabo Theme Park

Tibidabo Theme Park, which was opened in 1899, is the oldest in Spain and one of the first to be constructed in Europe. Some of its old attractions still work today, such as the Avión, one of the first flights simulators with its own propellor, the Museu dels Autòmats (which has more than 40 pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries), and the Talaia, a structure more than 90 years old that lifts visitors over 50 metres in the air.

Between the old glories of the park, you can also enjoy some more modern attractions, such as a roller coaster. Tibidabo is a magical, symbolic place in the city of Barcelona. It is the highest peak in the Serra de Collserola. At a height of 512 metres, and known as the Magic Mountain, it is one of the best viewpoints overlooking the city.

In addition to spectacular views of Barcelona, the park offers visitors attractions, shows and entertainment to suit all ages.

Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is the leading centre on Pablo Picasso's formative years. The history of the museum is a chronical of the firm desire of the artist to leave his mark on Barcelona.

With a collection of over 3500 pieces by the Malaga artist, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona contains the most complete collection in the world of work from Picasso's youth, which constitutes the best period of artistic expression that enables a greater understanding of the artist.

The museum is comprised of five large, Catalan Gothic-style palaces over which Picasso's works are displayed in chronological order. These palaces have been largely refurbished but you can still find some original spaces where you can view the style of the elite in the city during the 19th century.

Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is the most famous and symbolic monument in Barcelona. As the prime example of modernist architecture created by Gaudi, thousands of tourists visit it every day despite the fact it remains unfinished.

Extravagant, ambitious and controversial, this modern church has been undergoing construction since 1882 with a neo-Gothic style. A year after the project was placed in Gaudi's hands, he completed redesigned it. He designed an exceptional, innovative temple that would be comprised of 18 towers, although he only had time to create one of them before his death.

When he died in 1926, Gaudi left the project that occupied the last years of his life unfinished. However, thanks to the plans he had kept, his dream has been made a reality, little by little, thanks to the work of other artists and the money obtained from donations and visits.

It is hoped construction will be completed in 2030.
