Have you seen the Antoni Gaudi masterpieces? Barcelona is an amazing city and a destination of marvellous architecture. Here are some of the Gaudi architectural masterpieces you need to visit once in your life!
THE BASILICA OF SAGRADA FAMILIA
The Sagrada Familia was the first sight to see when I arrived in Barcelona. The architecture of the building is stunning! The construction of the cathedral started in 1882 initially designed by Francisco de Paula del Villar. The project was taken over by Antoni Gaudí in 1882 and continued till his death in 1914. The restoration of this emblematic building is expected to be completed in 2026. A unique building of incredible architecture you should see!

Park Güell is an amazing park, a total surface area of 19 hectares, open to the public. The park offers panoramic views of the city! There is a restricted area inside the park, which is a UNESCO heritage site, that requires paying a ticket (10€) to view the magnificent murals of the Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi.Tweet
Due to maintenance work in the restricted area, some spaces were under restoration. Take a look at the website before your visit.
I would recommend paying for the entrance if you would like to view the murals, alternatively walk up to the hill to enjoy amazing views of the city! On the top of the hill is Mirador de Joan Sales viewing platform. Joan Sales was a Catalan writer, poet, translator and editor. If you fancy walking walk 10 minutes from Mirador de Joan Sales to Mirador de architect Ignacio de Lecea viewing platform.
Casa Calvet, a stunning building designed by Antoni Gaudí, is located in Carrer de Casp str. One of Gaudi’s masterpieces, built between 1899-1904, was created for the textile manufacturer Pere Màrtir Calvet. Exterior views only are allowed as the building is not open to the public. There is a chocolate – coffee shop on the ground floor.
