After carefully evaluating the duration of your Barcelona Card, the city opens to travelers in all its beauty and majesty from the visionary spiers of the Sagrada Familia, the symbolic monument of Barcelona. Still nearing completion, like all churches built throughout the Middle Ages and beyond, the masterpiece designed by Antoni GaudĂ­, who worked on it incessantly from 1883 to 1926, the year of his death, is a stunning example of architecture, where the suggestive decorations The exteriors, sometimes disturbing and lyrical, preserve an interior where the light that penetrates through the long windows creates harmonious plays of multicolored lights.

The modern spirituality that surrounds the Sagrada Familia is then transformed into the human vortex that swarms day and night.

Through the side streets of the Rambla you can breathe everything charm of this cosmopolitan city and its old neighborhoods, first of all the Gothic quarter, a labyrinth of winding streets that at night are illuminated with the lights of the countless hidden places here and there and the traditional quarries. The neighborhood is finally dominated by the Cathedral, a magnificent example of Catalan Gothic, and not far away are also the two basilicas of Santa MarĂ­a del Mar and that of Pi (of the pine).

Barcellona Card: Eixample, MontJuic and Barceloneta

On historic neighborhoods of Barcelona, the so-called Ciutat Vella (Barrio Gótico, El Raval y la Ribera), extends to the northeast a grandiose neighborhood, the Eixample, which looks like a chessboard from above. Here, on the famous street called Passeig de Gracia, between luxury boutiques and trendy restaurants, you will find Gaudí's famous urban architecture: Casa Milà and Casa Batllò. In this neighborhood they also find the Sagrada Familia and Amatller house.

Museum of Catalonia and the Font Mágica: a spectacular and immense fountain where the water is colored and dances to the rhythm of music and whose glow is also visible from the city at night.

Going down towards the sea, at the end of the Rambla, the modern city waterfront, at the end of which, in front of MontJuic, is the charming neighborhood of Barceloneta, once an old fishing village with very narrow streets, where today as then, between nightclubs and fish restaurants, the sea breeze that rises from opposite blows. , and the famous, beach.

Arrive at Parc GĂĽell with the Barcellona Card

One of the most visited attractions in Barcelona is undoubtedly the Guell park, in the La Salut neighborhood, the masterpiece that GaudĂ­ left as a gift to his city at the beginning of the 20th century and which represents a wonderful example of an urban park, one of the most emblematic in the world. At the highest point of the park, with its strangely shaped buildings dotted with multicolored ceramics, there is ahuge panoramic terrace, the Plaza de la Naturaleza, bordered by a huge bench shaped like a sea serpent, from where you can enjoy an incomparable view of the city of Barcelona to the blue of the sea. Inside the park there are also GaudĂ­'s house museum, which hosted the artist and his family from 1906 to 1926.
