In Barcelona you will find buildings spanning all eras of the city’s 2000 years old history: The oldest date back to the time of the Romans, there are buildings from the Gothic period, the Catalan art nouveau (el Modernisme) and imposing modern buildings.
Many of them are famous landmarks and real tourist attractions. Some of them made Catalonian architects famous far beyond the Spanish borders.
In the modern era, especially the Olympic Games in 1992 led to the construction of many modern and beautiful buildings. The city managed to liberate itself from the dreariness of the Franco era and continue with its tradition of creativity, known from the Modernisme, blended with modern styles. Some of the buildings are quite disputed – but that makes the charm of it.
By the way: there is no othher city in the world that hosts UNESCO heritage sites as Barcelona: Casa Milà (La Pedrera), Parc Güell, Palau Guell, the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, the Casa Vicens, the crypt of the Colònia Güell , Palau de la Mùsica Catalana and the Hospital de Santa Creu i de Sant Pau.
With the Barcelona Card you can get free or reduced admission to many attractions.
The Gran Teatre del Liceu is one of the most important opera houses in Europe and one of the most beautiful attractions of Barcelona. The greatest singers of the last two decades performed the most important classic oeuvres at this opera. Performers like Domingo, Pavarotti, Caballé, Callas or Tebaldi will always have a special place in the hearts of the audience.
The roof of the Casa Milà is one of the most interesting and popular sights in Barcelona.
The gothic church Santa Maria del Mar was built in only 55 years and therefore does not consist of different architectural styles.
The roof of the Casa Batlló resembles the back of a dragon.
Camp Nou, the stadium of the FC Barcelona, is Europe’s largest football stadium. You can buy tickets for home matches of the FC Barcelona on our website.
Who's going on holiday trips already voluntarily in a hospital? This, however, you should look. The Hospital de Santa Creu i de Sant Pau is on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
