One of my favourite cities in Europe, walking down Barcelona’s streets is like walking down an architectural runway show. There is so much history behind the construction of churches, squares and buildings. Barcelona is also fun, you will find local food and craft markets, night life along the beach and the La Rambla district is just too much fun.
So if you are set to visit Spain or Europe in general and Spain was not on your bucket list, here are a few reasons why you should totally include it on your bucket list and why it is one of my favourite cities.
La Boqueria (Food market)
I can be a small girl, but when it comes to food I think big. La Boqueria is a food market at La Rambla district. This market serves traditional Spanish food, it is all fresh and local at affordable prices. Along la Rambla you can also find little bars, restaurants and street art shows.
La Sagrada Familia (Church)
I am not a religious person and I must say that the energy at this church was beautiful and the architecture is insane. Spanish people also called it the church of the generations; Antonio Gaudi, the main architect of La Sagrada Familia passed away and the church was unfinished so other architects from around the world put their own touches to the church, without interfering with Gaudi’s style. Today La Sagrada Familia is still not finished yet, but it is planned to be ready by 2026.
La Pedrera (Famous building in Barcelona, constructed by Antonio, Gaudi)
This house constructed by Antonio Gaudi for a Royal family, now days is just used for exhibitions. If you are a fan of Star Wars, you are going to love this building as some Star War’s characters were inspired by the sculptures on the top of La Pedrera.
A walk in this park was extremely fun, all the houses and sculptures here are very colourful and unique. Antonio Gaudi lived at Park Guell and his house is a museum. The house contains crazy sculptures and furniture made by him. At this Park, you can also get an incredible view of park Guell and Barcelona.
