    The city that can fascinate anybody

    Barcelona is lively, colourful, and unmissable, with a range of diverse sights, and gives every visitor an unforgettable holiday.

    Start by visiting the famous works of Antoni Gaudì, who brightened the city with his colours and bold designs including:

    Sagrada Familia: This is one of the symbols of the city and every year it attracts over 2 000 000 visitors from all over the world. The building is considered one of the most ambitious and original buildings in the modern world. Its construction started in 1882 and has never been finished: originally the project was three facades representing the nativity, the crucifixion and the resurrection, but this last piece was never realised. When you visit the Sagrada Familia you will be enchanted by the tiny details that decorate the walls of the basilica and the description of how it was built.

    Casa Batlò: The peculiarity of this building is the undulating walls covered in stone and crystals, creating a wonderful Catalan style mosaic with weaves of coloured glass and ceramic discs. The roof of the building is made of large scales and resembles the back of a dragon, a statue of which is located on the terrace from which you can get a roof top view of the whole city.

    La Pedrera: This building, also called Casa Milà, today hosts a museum dedicated to Gaudì and various temporary cultural shows. Another interesting exhibit is a room in which you can see a recreation of a typical bourgeois Catalan house from the XIX century.

    Parc Guell: The park is a magical and fable-like complex that will amaze you with its forms and colours. On the main entrance stairs you will find the famous salamander (some say it is a dragon), the other symbol of the city. The park has been a Unesco heritage site since 1984.

    Once you’ve finished your tour of the works of Gaudì it will be time to immerse yourself in the pumping heart of the city: Las Ramblas

    At 2 Km long it is one of the most famous streets in Barcelona. Connecting Plaza Catalunya to the sea, it is used daily by hundreds of tourists who want to experience the liveliest part of the city. On a walk along Las Ramblas you will pass by shops, bars, cafés, street artists, souvenir shops, typical restaurants and numerous tourist attractions like the Bouqueria market, which as well as being beautiful to look at is a great place to try typical Catalan products.

    For those who like green open spaces and want to see the city from high up, we suggest you go to the splendid parks of Montjuic and Tibidabo. The first has a castle that you can visit, while the second has an antique fairground that will take older visitors back in time while the younger ones enjoy themselves.

    Suitable for everyone, Barcelona also has something for dreamers, those passionate about art and culture and sport lovers

    Fuente Magica: The magic fountain of Montjuic has a daily show that will leave you breathless: the water jets are synchronised with music and colour.

    Museum of Picasso: The museum contains one of the biggest collections of works by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and is one of the most visited museums in the city.

    Camp Nou: For lovers of sport and particularly football, you can’t miss a trip to the stadium of FC Barcelona, which with its 120 000 seats is the biggest stadium in Europe. You can buy a ticket to visit the pitch and the museum and find out all about the club's greatest players.
