Points of interest

    Originally a strategic place to defend the city, it rises along a steep slope beside the sea. Its summit affords a commanding view of the Barcelona skyline.
    It also houses reference buildings of modern art and contemporary architecture, such as the sport facilities belonging to the Olympic Ring or museums, such as the Miró Foundation and the Caixa Forum. We also find examples of urban development and architecture designed for the International Exposition of 1929.

    Barcelona's coast has adapted to the time and needs of the people. Today, you see the very latest architecture, represented by the World Trade Center and the converted Old Port. The Old Port is full of shops, restaurants and nightclubs and contains a charming imprint of the past as well. You can also witness the Columbus Monument or the beautiful Gothic building of the Drassanes.

    This is where it all started. Here, the Roman and medieval imprints are mixed with the modernity in the center of the city. You will learn about the origins of Barcelona and many of the Catalan traditions and its culture. Within the Gothic Quarter you can explore landmarks such as Plaça Sant Jaume and the famous Cathedral.

    The most opulent and luxurious street of Barcelona, which reveals Barcelona´s most distinctive architecture, Catalan modernism. Marvel at the surprising façades of Gaudi’s houses (Casa Batlló and Milà, also known as la Pedrera) and discover the ‘apple of discord’ – the word ‘manzana’ (apple) also means `a city block in Spanish.

    This district was laid out by Ildefons Cerda. His plan was approved by the authorities in 1859 in order to expand the city (Eixample is the Catalan word for expansion). His vision of urban development was revolutionary and utopian. In this newly developed area of Barcelona Gaudí built his masterpiece, the Basilica of La Sagrada Familia.
