Things to see

The heart of the city, Placa de Catalunya is where the old city and 19th century-built Eixample gently meet. The sprawling square features fountains and an array of sculptures, the most dominant being the monument to Francesc Macia. Leading away from the square is Las Ramblas, a picturesque tree-lined boulevard that splices through the city center. Stretching for over a kilometer, the leafy thoroughfare is known for its pavement cafés, souvenir stalls, fragrant restaurants, and street performers masquerading as statues. One of Las Ramblas’ most unique features is a colorful pavement mosaic by none other than the late Joan Miro, one of Barcelona’s greatest artists. Antoni Gaudi’s grandest architectural marvel and his last project, the Sagrada Familia began construction in 1882, but was never completed. Despite this, the towering Roman Catholic church is still a mesmerizing sight, with its eye-pleasing blend of Art Nouveau and Gothic design elements.
