Day 1 In Barcelona

Barcelona, the wonderful Spanish city and the capital of Catalonia that stands out as one of the best European destinations. From beautiful streets and palm trees to amazing beaches. In this post, I am going to talk about some of the best attractions and must sees that I visited in Barcelona.

Sagrada Família

Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Família (Church of the Holy Family) is the world’s largest unfinished Roman Catholic church in the world. Its construction began in 1882 and it went through multiple redesigns. It is still under construction until our very day. Its anticipated to be completed by the year 2026 when it will be a century away from when Antoni Gaudí’s finished work and design on it.

It’s located in Carmel Hill which was a rocky hill that was originally intended to be a housing site but never succeeded.

Park Güell is well known for its unusual building materials. It’s made of rustic stone topped with ceramic tiling which what makes it really stands out as one of the top attractions in Europe.
