Barcelona is rightly considered a city of countless sights. Starting with the Sagrada Familia church by master architect Antonio Gaudi, which has been under continuous construction since 1882. Also by Gaudi is Casa Milà, a stunning building with undulating stonework and colorful tiles called La Pedrera, German for quarry. Other architectural attractions include the Poble Español, also called the Spanish Village, which consists of different neighborhoods with their own architectural styles, and the futuristic Torre Agbar, a tower 142 meters high.
There are many other reasons why Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, some of which we do not want to deprive you of.

The gastronomic offer is international, fresh and very tasty. Dishes with exquisite seafood or tapas with countless small delicacies. Sangria, Spanish churros, a doughnut-like pastry dipped in chocolate sauce. Fruit lovers will enjoy a visit to the Mercat de la Boqueria on La Rambla. Here, one colorful fruit stand follows the next.
Shopping in Barcelona is an experience. The city is so popular with shoppers because, in addition to exclusive designer brands, there are many small labels that can’t be found anywhere else in the world and are still affordable. The most popular shopping street in the city is called Passeig de Gracia and leads to the old town.
Barcelona offers unique sights and great alleys. Art enthusiasts will get their money’s worth at Park Guell. Remarkable architecture can be discovered everywhere in the city. Likewise, narrow streets and romantic squares that invite you to relax and linger. A special tip is the Mirador del Poble Sec, from where you have a great view of the port, the sea and the city.
