What to see and do
A city doesn’t get to be one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations without having some pretty strong points. Barcelona has just about everything - great food, pretty scenery, magnificent architecture, a league-winning football club and fantastic weather. But if there’s one thing that’s an absolute must-see in the city, it’s the Sagrada Familia. A terrifyingly spectacular architectural behemoth, the Sagrada Familia is the brainchild of Antonio Gaudi and has been under construction for more than 120 years. Constructed as a massive Basilica, it may be the strangest church you’ve seen yet - with twisted columns, intricately carved patterns, and tall towers, the Sagrada looks more like an eccentric castle than a church. It seems doomed to stand uncompleted till at least 2020, though - after Gaudi passed away in the middle of the Sagrada’s construction, his plans were lost and subsequent attempts to complete the structure have proven difficult.
Next must-see after the Sagrada - the famous Las Ramblas street, a pedestrian mall lined with merchants hawking all manners of stuff. You can pick up anything from fruit and produce to meat, candy, souvenirs, and even a new pet or 2 along this 1.2-kilometre long mall, whilst enjoying the lively antics of a diverse range of ever-present street performers.
