Marvel at Gaudí’s architectural creations
The Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí changed the face of Barcelona. His unique architectural style can be seen throughout the city. Influenced by nature, he created buildings with an organic form, with twists, curves and contusions, and used tile work to give colour. The Sagrada Familia is probably his most celebrated building, a huge basilica and a Unesco world heritage site. Construction began in 1882, but Gaudí’s plans were so ambitious that works are still ongoing. If you have a head for heights, climb to the top of its spires for a closer inspection of the ornate architecture and for superb views over Barcelona.
