1. Respect the Barcelona House of Prayer
Work on this Gothic church began in the thirteenth century and lasted more than 150 years. Authoritatively known as the Basilica of the Heavenly Cross and Holy Person Eulalia, it was sanctified in 1339 and has two gigantic towers that stand north of 53 meters (174 feet) tall, brilliant finished glass, and staggering wood carvings inside the fancy and extensive primary chamber. Work on the church building was not completed until the nineteenth century when a local finance manager covered the majority of the extra costs for the current façade, which is based on unique portrayals from the thirteenth century.
2. Become mixed up in the Barri Gotic.
Barcelona’s old Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) is my main attraction in town. It’s home to the most established pieces of the city, including the remaining parts of the Roman wall and a few middle-aged structures. It’s an area loaded up with bars, clubs, and eateries now. While it is somewhat touristy, as far as I’m concerned, it’s additionally the most lovely region in the city, with limited, winding roads and noteworthy structures that cause you to feel like you’ve ventured back in time. Put in a couple of hours, losing all sense of direction in this locale. You will love it!
3. View the gallery of Barcelona’s historical backdrop.
I’ve visited a tonne of city historical centers throughout the long term; however, Barcelona is truly outstanding. Opened in 1943, the gallery is home to more than 4,000 square meters of Roman remnants (situated underneath the historical center) that you can stroll through. There is likewise a free (and very specific) sound aid as well as fastidious clarifications of the displays. Regardless of whether you’re not an experience buff, you’ll get a tonne out of this historical center. It gives a greatly improved feeling of the city and its past (and the remnants truly are astounding!).
4. See the Fabulous and Illustrious Royal Residence
In the fourteenth century, the Palau Reial Major was the home of Barcelona’s counts. Situated close to the set of experience galleries, it later housed the Lords of Aragon (the rulers who managed the area) from 1035 until the fifteenth century (however, the vast majority of the castle remains date to the fourteenth century). It is additionally said that this is where Christopher Columbus returned after his “discovery” journey to North America. The royal residence is made up of three distinct structures that were clearly built at different times (two of which are considered gothic magnum opuses). Inside, the displays present a nitty-gritty history of the city and district.
5. Meander Park Güell
Park Güell is a wonderful and rambling 45-acre garden complex planned by widely popular architect Antoni Gaud. Dating to the mid-1900s, it’s one of the numerous Gaud works in the city open to the general public. Today, it’s a World Heritage Site and civil nursery that is allowed to be entered (you can get to the greater part of the recreation area for nothing, however, the inside segments require confirmation).
The point of convergence of the recreation area is the fundamental patio, which is encircled by a long bench like an ocean snake. The recreation area is right next to the renowned La Sagrada Familia, so visiting both consecutively is simple. It’s a lovely and bright park, but it can get crowded, so try to go early or on a workday when the crowds are smaller.
