Barcelona's architectural

7 places

La Sagrada Família


Europe, Spain, Província de Barcelona

Before you leave the Sagrada Famila, pay a visit to the crypt, Gaudí's resting place since his death in 1926. The architect spent the last days of his life on site, living a hermitlike existence in a workroom and dedicating all of his time to the project.

Santa Maria del Mar


Europe, Spain, Barcelona

Located in a busy shopping area, the church is an opportunity to take in a moment of silence and enjoy its beautiful architecture.

Torre Agbar

Public Building

Europe, Spain, Barcelona

You should see the tower at night. The colors are really amazing.

Palau de la Música Catalana


Europe, Spain, Barcelona

To see the inside of the building you have to either take a guided tour or you buy a ticket for a concert. Concerts are almost every day, and sometimes tickets are really cheap.

Mercat de Santa Caterina


Europe, Spain, Barcelona

Not as crowded as the touristy 'La Boqueria' market, visiting this market seems like a more authentic experience.

Casa Milà


Europe, Spain, Barcelona

On summer nights (Thurs., Fri., and Sat., Jun. 20-Sept.7) the roof terrace is open for drinks and jazz concerts; the doors open at 9:45pm and concerts begin at 10.30. Admission is €27.

Hospital de Sant Pau


Europe, Spain, Barcelona

This beautiful piece of architecture was actually a functioning hospital until as recently as 2009!
