Barcelona Architecture: Top 4 Places to Visit

Barcelona is sited between mountains and the sea. The Spanish ancient city is well known for its blend of both modern and Gothic architecture.

There are several attractions to visit in Barcelona. This article focuses on the top five stunning architectural sights in the ancient city. Touring any of these destinations will inspire you! Read on.

Sagrada Familia

This architecture is quite controversial. The majestic Sagrada Familia is an incomplete Roman Catholic minor basilica. It’s sited in the Example district – which, in 2005, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Just like other buildings in various cities, the Sagrada Familia was designed and planned by Antoni Gaudí. Antoni had a great impact on the city.

Casa Mila

Also amazed by Antoni Gaudí’s work on Casa Batlló, successful businessman, Pere Milà, commissioned him to make another apartment building on the Passeig de Gràcia, close to the famous real estate agency LOCA BARCELONA.

The smooth undulations of the subsequent Casa Milà were unique, never seen before. The work was lambasted by a few critics. They named it La Pedrera ( the stone quarry). The name stuck for a while and after a century, the structure is viewed as a masterpiece.

Park Güell

After being inspired by nineteenth-century English “garden cities” , an extensive parcel of land in the foothills of Collserola was picked as the location of Park Güell. Again, the talented architect, Antoni Gaudí, was welcome to develop the shared spaces.

Few of his fantasy buildings flank the main entry. A trip of splendidly tiled steps clears up past the meaningful salamander sculpture to the Hypostyle Hall. It was loaded up with around 100 sparkling segments.

Palau de la Música

Here is a popular historic concert hall in the city of Barcelona. Locals see it as a cultural symbol, relating to the Catalan nation.

Palau de la Música is one of the most glamorous structures in Barcelona. The building provides solid differentiation with the structures surrounding it.

As a result of the blue and gold stained glass curves of the roof plus the tilted chandeliers, the auditorium is illuminated by natural light during daylight hours.


Visiting any of these locations whenever you are in Barcelona will give you an unforgettable experience. You may need to buy tickets to visit these amazing Barcelona sites. The ancient architectures are simply alluring!
