My favorite part about Barcelona, Spain is Gaudi’s buildings! I personally think this is what makes Barcelona Unique and world famous!
Antoni Gaudi was an architect who had a highly original and distinctive style ! To me he was a genius ! In his buildings you can see the amount of thought he had invested in each detail. In addition to building flamboyant buildings, he incorporated functional design in ceramics , stained glass iron work and carpentry ! You could see this in the shutters he used at Palau Guell, you can see it in the fire place and the type of wood used for the railings at Casa Mila . At every place we visited the details and the thought put in was amazing to observe!
Every place I visited that was built by him left me fascinated! You can read more about him here .
Sharing some of his work below !
This is a house right off Rambla – Ticket cost is 12 Euro and absolutely worth it. It includes an audio guide and that was very useful. Spend between 1 to 2 hours.
Buy the tickets online to save money ! Try to go early if you can to avoid the crowds . Ticket is kind of expensive – 28.5 Euro at the door. I still think it is worth it ! You can either do Casa Batllo or Casa Mila on the same street. We only did Casa Batllo . With the tickets you can go inside – without it you can see the exterior! Spend between 1 to 2 hours.
Buy the tickets online! Go early to have better photo opportunities . It can get really crowded! There are buses available that takes you right up to the park ! You can easily spend half to a full day here . I enjoyed sitting on the colorful benches and enjoy the breeze from the nearby ocean !
Most famous Gaudi building ! I wrote a dedicated post for the Church.
Try to visit many of the palaces as possible! These were my favorite things to do in Barcelona!!
