Best things to do during your holidays in Barcelona
Admire the Sagrada Familia
The Sagrada Familia is probably the most famous structure in Barcelona. The basilica was designed by architect Gaudi and they have been building this structure ever since 1882. It’s hard getting a picture without cranes, but it is definitely worth a visit.
If you would like to see the Sagrada Familia from the inside, it’s recommendable to purchase tickets on the internet. That way you don’t have to wait in the very long line that can take up to hours before getting in the basilica.
Stroll through Park Guell
Located just outside the city centre, but very well accessible by public transport, is Park Guell. This city park is also designed by Gaudi. Most parts of the park are free accessible. Only the parts where you can see the best Gaudi structures can be visited after paying an entrance fee.
