I’m so impressed by this masterpiece of city that i don’t know where to start with…

The thing is that this wasn’t my first time in Barcelona, (i was 6 years ago only for one day) and I guess I didn’t get the chance the fell that Barcelona spirit so when I booked this trip I was like, this city is in top 10 visited cities in the world so let’s give it one more shot… Well now I don’t regret it at all…

While in Barcelona you need to have a good organized schedule so you can visit the main attractions (…and there are so many…).

The main street La Rambla is like the center point of Barcelona and it is the most crowded street I’ve ever seen… There are sooo many tourist, but now I totally understand why and it is not hard to believe at all.

The Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) is the old city of Barcelona and the name its says this quarter come from the Gothic era, which totally impressed me and, I became a huge fan of it…

Sagrada Familia

The Landmark and the must see in Barcelona (which I’m sure everybody heard about) is Sagrada Familia. The construction of this amazing architecture miracle commenced in 1882, but when Gaudi get involved in 1883, got transformed with his architectural and engineering style. He dedicated his last years on this project, but at the time of his death in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. However it is not finished yet, so the project should be completed till 2026-2028.

Antoni Gaudí’s works are the reflection of Barcelona’s beauty nowdays and his masterpieces are the most important and most visited attractions of all the times.

Parc Guell  is also the reflection of Gaudí’s artistic plenitude, and there is an interesting story behind this architectural perfection.

This Park was constructed as I mentioned by Gaudi, by order of the Count Eusebi Guell, after whom the park was named. The intention was to exploit the fresh air (well away from smoky factories) and beautiful views from the site, with sixty triangular lots being provided for luxury houses.

There are many many squares to be visited like Placa Catalynia Placa Reial ect.
