There are many places to visit in Barcelona, which fascinates with Gaudi's unique structures, narrow streets, colorful streets and many other attractions. I have brought together the important places you need to see.
1. La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia, the most famous work of Antoni Gaudi, is an important building that has also written its name on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The church, which was started to be built in 1882, was left unfinished in 1926 after Gaudi's death. The construction of the church was resumed in 1952 and the construction continued as Gaudi had drawn it before his death, but it is still not completed. The church has a very impressive appearance with its exterior design. There are sections that were built and a small museum that reveals the events that took place during the construction of the church.
Gaudi, who is a true nature lover, reflected this fondness on the interior design of the church. The walls and windows of the church are completely covered with nature figures. I strongly recommend you to see this unique church with its magnificent lighting and acoustics. After visiting the church, if you are not afraid of heights, be sure to go up to its towers. You can enjoy the magnificent city view from the top of the church. Before going here, it is useful to buy tickets online.
2. Picasso Museum
The Picasso museum, which is among the first places to visit in Barcelona, is a museum where extremely important works of Picasso are exhibited. The museum attracts attention with its unique architecture as well as the valuable works inside. You can see more than 3500 Picasso works in the museum. However, instead of the ordinary works of Picasso, here are mainly the most valuable works. You can visit the museum, which is closed on Mondays, between 09:00 and 19:00 on other days.
3. La Rambla
La Rambla, one of the most popular streets of the city, is a very lively and colorful street that attracts tourists. On the street where there are many shops, restaurants and cafes, you can come across street artists, visit La Boqueria market and Erotic Museum located on the street. You can spend pleasant moments tasting unique flavors at La Boqueria covered market, which is an ideal stop for shopping and dining.
4. Placa de Calatunya
One of the important sightseeing stops of the city is Placa de Calatunya. This street, which hosts many restaurants, cafes and shopping centers, has alternatives that can appeal to everyone's taste. This is also a central point where buses depart to different parts of the city and you can easily reach the airport. If you like Hard Rock Cafes, you can go to their branch here. In addition, El Corte Ingles, the city's most famous and gigantic shopping center, located in the middle of the square, is worth seeing.
5. El Born
This is a region where you can come across a cute pub or cafe on each corner and admire the streets reminiscent of old times. This district, where many beautiful boutiques and shops are located, is somewhat reminiscent of Cihangir. We also recommend that shopping enthusiasts visit this place. Especially if you are looking for different pieces, you should visit the specially designed boutiques here. If you want to try tapas, give the places here a shot.
Bars around El Born are also very enjoyable. In this region, which is especially preferred by young people, after 11 o'clock at night, colorful and fun moments are experienced.
6. Park guell
Built as a show of nobility of the Guell family, the park is one of the masterpieces of the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. Park Guell, one of the must-see places in the city, has a pleasant appearance reminiscent of fairy tales. Gaudi's labor is on the stairs and pavilion parts of the building. When you examine Park Guell closely, you will come across plenty of nature figures. It is not surprising to see these details in the work of Gaudi, who is a fan of nature. An impressive staircase at the entrance of the park and a dragon-like lizard attract attention in the area where the stairs are located. There is a museum in the park with many items and drawings belonging to Gaudi. You can have a pleasant stroll in the park, if you wish, you can find the opportunity to closely examine Gaudi's work in the museum.
7. Camp Nou Stadium
The Nou camp stadium, which has been home to FC Barcelona sports club since 1957, is Europe's largest and the world's 11th largest stadium. If you are a football lover, we recommend you to see this stadium, which is often frequented by football enthusiasts. Another feature of the stadium is that it does not receive advertisements inside. The reason for this is not to spoil the visuality of the stadium. In order not to lose the aesthetic appearance of the stadium, there are no advertisements in the stadium.
Do not think of this place as a place where only football matches are held. There are many shops and a museum of football clubs inside the Nou camp stadium. There is also a stadium tour for those who wish in the stadium. If you wish, you can join this tour and get more detailed information about the stadium.
You have to pay a certain fee to visit the stadium and the museum. You can visit the stadium alone or with a guide if you wish.
