Sagrada Familia was began in 1882 and it is planned to be finished in 2026. The dimensions and complexity of the project Gaudí designed as well as other reasons made this construction endless. You might have visited hundreds of churches in your life but no-one like Sagrada Familia. Make sure you do not miss this wonder!
Park Güell is nowadays a public park but it was supposed to be a private residential area where Gaudí built the road, the main square, market square, entrance and gate buildings. His designs in the park are fairy-tale looking, amazing shapes and colours. From the Park there are great views over the city and the Mediterranean sea.
Casa Milà or La Pedrera is one of the most visited houses by Gaudí because it sits in Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona’s city centre. It was finished in 1912 and from outside its sight is already very surprising, a massive house made of stone carved to look undulated like the sea. It is possible to access the rooftop, probably the most amazing in town, the attic and one of the apartments.
Casa Batlló also sits in Passeig de Gràcia, a couple of blocks from La Pedrera. It was finished in 1906. The view from outside is surprising but also its interior will amaze you. The quality and work of the materials used, their shapes and colours everything has been set to make the visitor feel in the ocean, surrounded by seaweed, fish, bubbles. A whole experience!
Torre Bellesguard is a beautiful house in the upper part of Barcelona, the neighborhood of Sarrià, that Gaudí built in the place where there was a royal castle back in medieval times. This clearly influenced Gaudí’s designs in the new building finished in 1909. The family that owns the property still lives in the house. It is possible to visit the entrance hall, one of the floors and the rooftop from where there are excellent views of Barcelona, the mountain of Collserola and the sea. After all “Bellesguard” means “Beautiful View”.
Casa Vicenç will soon open to the public. It is located in Gràcia, not far from La Pedrera, and was the first house Gaudí built, it was finished in 1889.
Palace Güell was, along with Casa Vicenç, one of the first important projects of Gaudí. It is a very recommendable visit to understand Gaudí’s evolution and innovative conception of light and space. The owner was Mr. Güell who later on would comission Gaudí to build the common areas in Park Güell. This house-palace sits nearby La Rambla, right in the city centre of Barcelona.
