Probably the best known and most influential architect from Spain, Antonio Gaudí, spent most of his life in Barcelona and the city boasts the largest concentration of his works in the world. Gaudi's buildings are unique and you won't find anything like this anywhere else in the world. So which ones should you visit?
The most visited monument in Spain, that is also a part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is probably the most famous of Gaudi's works. One of the most spectacular churches in the world is still under construction and should be completed in 2026, a century after the architect's death. Here he combined Gothic with curvilinear Art Nouveau forms and his own geometric style, which makes it an original and breathtaking work. Check out our Sagrada Familia tours to check it on your own.
Casa Mila commonly known as La Pedrera was declared as one of the World Heritage Sites in 1984. The entire building, both interior and exterior are worthy of admiration, but one of its most iconic spaces is its spectacular roof terrace.
Casa Batlló is so irregular that there are few straight lines in it and much of the façade is decorated with a colorful mosaic, known as trencadís, made of broken ceramic tiles. You should also see the breathtaking interior, if you want to witness artwork at its best!
A garden complex that houses a series of dynamically designed buildings, that is also a part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Check out our Park Güell tours to learn more about the “trencadis” that you can find all over the park, the colonnaded hall and the terrace with serpentine shapes and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Barcelona, with Gaudí’s work in the foreground, and the city in the background.
