Barcelona: Get Lost in Gaudi

One of the most unique and memorable ways to explore Barcelona is to get lost in some of Gaudi's most famous works. You'll be surprised to find that his work is scattered across Barcelona, from the lamp posts found in Plaça Reial or the striking Casa Batlló. Whether you're a Gaudi fan or not, there is no denying that his work is breathtaking.

La Sagrada Familia

No adventure in Gaudí’s Barcelona is complete without a visit to the legendary La Sagrada Família. This otherworldly looking church has been in continuous construction since 1892 and is not expected to be finished until 2030. The sky-soaring church aims to depict the relationship between man, nature and religion through its architectural elements, facades and sculptures. With rounded, swelling spires, curving lines, and sculptures that seem to grow out of the stone, La Sagrada Família is Gaudí’s monumental achievement and truly embodies his vision for architecture and buildings based on nature; as he would say, “there are no straight lines in nature.”

Parc Güell

Explore Parc Güell. Built at the turn of the 20th century, this park with excellent views of Barcelona showcases Gaudí’s stunning art and architecture as it blends in with the natural beauty of the park. Originally comissioned for the royals, the garden represents Gaudi's “naturalist” phase. Intentionally set in the leafy green of the park and gardens, the mosaic-covered artwork depicts the natural world in theme, colour and form.
