Gaudí, a Spanish genius with his own name, deserves to be considered a wonder for himself. Works in Barcelona such as Park Güell or the always unfinished Sagrada Familia demonstrate the artistic level of this list.
A trip to Barcelona should start with a good panoramic view of the city. One of the best, located in the «modern» center, in the Eixample district of Barcelona, is the one obtained from Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera.
This is the best example to know what a modernist style apartment building is. This architectural jewel was designed by Gaudí during the first half of the 20th century, but today it still leaves us with an open mouth for its originality.
After La Pedrera, we can immerse ourselves in the traditional Barcelona passion for design, which already comes from far away. In many places of the city, we find buildings of modernist style.
This was the preferred style of the bourgeoisie of the early twentieth century. Leaving aside the jewel in the crown, which is the temple of the Sagrada Familia – a must-see in the Eixample district of Barcelona -, we can not miss the popularly known as the Apple of Discord with Casa Amatller, Casa Batlló, and so on.
The other great modernist work of the city, also created by Gaudí, is the Güell Park. It is far from the center, but it is a unique place in the world and deserves to take a walk there.
