One of Barcelona's greatest attractions and one of the few that are absolutely free, is Gaudi's incredible Park Guell. Get anywhere near the Vallcarca stop on the green line and you'll see tourists lumped together, maps in hand, asking locals for Park 'Guay'. Designed and built by Gaudi between 1900 and 1914, this spectacular mix of garden, park and architectural dream is a small oasis within Barcelona. From the mosaic benches, to the meticulously tiled rooftops, Park Guell is both fascinating as it is serene. One of the best places to spend a sunny day, the park is a great place to listen to music, enjoy a few copas of vino or just relax with a good book. read more about Parc Güell

A village beneath a city. Barcelona's hidden gem. The Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat digs into the city's past. An audio guide, which is included in the price of admission, explains the history of the approximately 4,000 square meters of Roman ruins which are buried about 20 meters under the current city's street level. These ruins were discovered in the 1920's when the city underwent an urban reformation by cutting into the Gothic Quarter to create a major through street, the Via Laietana. read more about Museu d´Història de la Ciutat

Nestled in a ceramic mosaic wonderland, Antonio Gaudi spent most of his life with his niece, living in Casa Museu Gaudi,a building designed by his colleague Francesc Berenguer and situated in the mesmerizing Park Guell. From 1906-1926, Gaudi lived in this modernist building which is equipped with half a dozen rooms that are split between two floors. Casa Museum Gaudi is right in the middle of the park and today it has been converted into a museum. If you have an extra 4 Euros it's definitely worth a look inside as the entire place (on the inside) was furnished and designed by Gaudi himself. Gaudi's Casa is open daily from 10am-8pm and closed on Catalan holidays. read more about Casa Museu Gaudí

The Cathedral la Seu is also known as the Cathedral of Santa Eulalia, a saint whose crypt is in the cathedral and is one of Barcelona's patron saints. This place of worship can be viewed from the square in front of it only because several years ago it was decided that an entire block of buildings should be torn down to better appreciate the grandeur of the construction. The interior is a treasure box full of elaborate chapels. The first one on the left displays a marble baptism basin which is said to be the very place where Christopher Columbus brought the first six "Indians" from the Americas to be blessed. An impressive choir, located in the center of the central nave, is a typical characteristic of the interiors of Spanish cathedrals. Walking through the cloister visitors can step over the burial grounds as the tombs of the rich and important line the floor. read more about Catedral La Seu

  • Visit website
  • Barcelona, 08008

The Casa Milá is a fine example of Modernism, which is Cataluña's version of Art Nouveau. Organic and flowing with images of nature at every turn, this is one of Gaudí's many masterpieces. The sea comes to mind with the curving balconies perhaps lined with wrought iron kelp. The octagonal tiles inside forming starfish and other sea shapes are also used along Passeig de Gracia's sidewalk, the street on which the Casa Milá sits. The building is held up by pillars and not by supporting walls creating a greater flexibility in design especially in the façade's windows. The rooftop could be the icing on the cake with its chimneys shaped like medieval warriors with helmets on. Everything practical is turned into art. While the Casa Milá was one of Gaudí's last secular buildings, there are still inscriptions of Ave María in Latin demonstrating the architect's strong religious self. read more about Casa Milà

The church of Santa María del Mar provides an exceptional example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Imagine the sea once rose closer to this place of worship, and think of how important of a symbol it was for the wealthy maritime class who had their hands in its construction. From the outside the horizontal lines and heavy façade deceive those who enter the church to find columns stretching lightly towards the Gothic vaults. Appreciate the simplicity of the interior which is missing the elaborate altar and chapel pieces typical to Spanish churches. A fire set by anarchists in 1936 burned through those heavy decorations. read more about Iglesia Santa María del Mar

Joan Miró's works can be difficult to appreciate, but it's worth the extra effort and time. Renting the audio guide at the Fundación Joan Miró gives some perspective of the artist's messages, and makes the museum experience more enjoyable. The museum encompasses the works of Miró, displays a small collection of works by other artists paying tribute to Miró, and also has one or two temporary exhibits. The museum is located very close to the Montjuic Funicular stop. read more about Fundació Joan Miró

Rambla de Sant Josep (Mercat de la Boqueria)

Rambla de Sant Josep (Mercat de la Boqueria)

The flower vendors on the Rambla Sant Josep make for a colorful and scented background to the fantastic Mercat de la Boquería. The food market started as much smaller stalls, perhaps on the scale of the flower stalls. It was originally a traveling market dispersed on the outside of the city walls. However the Ramblas soon became a pedestrian throughway and the stalls merged into one official and permanent market on the Rambla Sant Josep in 1827. Several years later the convent of Sant Josep was demolished and the market moved into the space where shoppers continue to buy delicacies today. The variety and quality of fruits, vegetables, sweets, and meats are unbeatable and perfect for a traveler's picnic. At the entrance fruit stands always offer fresh squeezed tropical juices, and throughout the market the best lunches are had at bars and restaurants which serve the freshest ingredients possible...from the stands to their kitchens. read more about Rambla de Sant Josep (Mercat de la Boqueria)

Discover Catalunya's maritime past at the often unfortunately disregarded Maritime Museum set in an original Gothic shipyard built in the 13th and 14th centuries. The open space once used for shipbuilding is an ideal setting to display the collection which began as a small nautical museum in 1929. Today its highlights are the replica of Don Juan de los Austrias' royal galley, the original was used as the flagship in the important battle of Lepanto 1571, as well as the many excruciatingly detailed ship models used by sailors for learning, or for commercial sales of ships. The museum is a gem for those who love Naval history. read more about Museu Maritim
