La Sagrada Família – designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí

La Sagrada Familía, an extravagant cathedral designed by the renowned Antoni Gaudí and the most visited monument in all of Spain. This work of art has been under construction since 1882 is expected to be completed in 2026. Gaudí worked on the Basilica until the day he died. He thought the city would be known for the church. Some say the Sagrada Família represents Catalonia and the unachievable separation from Barcelona. The intricate details of the masterpiece is enlightening. Not one piece was designed without purpose. Gaudí had a vision for every inch of the space and even left room for future architects to add their own taste. He incorporates religious and historical stories within the design. You do not want to skip this tour on your visit to Barcelona. We recommend investing in the audible tour guide, so you can really appreciate the magnificent work. You can purchase entry tickets in advance and download the app (Sagrada Familia – Barcelona $2.99) to listen to a more in depth audio tour. Be sure to bring headphones!     

 Fun Fact: La Sagrada Família has taken longer to build than the Egyptian pyramids!

Camp Nou is home to the Futbol Club Barcelona. It is the largest stadium in Europe and home to futbol icons such as Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez play here. If you are visiting when they have a home game (Find there schedule here), we highly recommend grabbing a ticket and witnessing the lively atmosphere in person! There is nothing like going to an international futbol game. The crowd is vibrant and cheering the whole game. They even have a group of singers that wave banners and sing the team’s anthem through out the game. If you have the opportunity to witness El Clásico (rival matchup between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid), don’t miss that game!

Selfies at the city center, Plaça de Catalunya

Plaça de Catalunya, which translates to “Catalonia Square”, is considered the city center of Barcelona. This square is where the famous La Rambla and Passeig de Gracia ends, as well as a couple others. Here you will find luxury brand shops, fountains and statues. Oh..and lots of pigeons! Expect crowds of people and hagglers selling selfie sticks in this big tourist area.
