Also known as La Pedrera and constructed between 1906-1912, this was the last piece of civil work designed by Gaudí. Because of its grandness and uniqueness, it has been listed on the UNESCO world heritage list for its universal value.
Located in the city centre, this is known as one of Gaudi’s greatest masterpieces! It was designed in 1904 by Gaudi onto a previously built house, and since then, it has been refurbished several times. This house is also known locally as Casa dels Ossos (The House of Bones) because of its skeletal quality and lack of straight lines.
La Sagrada Familia
This is another work of Gaudi’s that is still under construction. This colossal Roman Catholic Church started its construction in 1882 and to this day, is still one of the most iconic features of Barcelona. The cathedral was actually started by Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano and it was in 1883 that Gaudi decided to dedicate his life, money and effort into the monument. In 1926, he sadly died and of course, the cathedral was left unfinished. The anticipated date for its completion is in 2020.
Passeig de Gràcia
As one of the most popular shopping streets in Barcelona, it is not only home to the classic high-street shops, but also expensive brands, such as Chanel, Tiffany and Burberry. It is the hub of all things shopping, as well as boasting modern and stylish cafes and restaurants.
