Who says Barcelona says Gaudi and who says Gaudi says beautiful impressive art. Gaudi can be found throughout Barcelona, Gaudi is everywhere; houses, churches and even a complete park is designed by Gaudi. Below you see a house designed by Gaudi.
Casa Mila La Pidrera
Casa Mila La Pridrera is a typical Gaudi design. It is located in the middle of Barcelona. On top of the building are impressive chimneys to be found. Normally a picture says more than a thousand words but to experience the impressiveness of this Gaudi creation you have to stand right in front of it. Its magnitude, all the little details and the perfect and astonishing design make it a tourist draw that is not to be missed.

La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia is the pride of Barcelona. La Sagrada Famila is located in the center of Barcelona and surrounded by buildings and a small park. From the park there's a magnificent view of La Sagrada Familia. The four gigantic towers make it one of the most impressive churches in the world. La Sagrada Famila has two entrances, both in different styles. Here you can clearly see the large period of time that has passed since the beginning of construction.
La Sagrada Familia - Under Construction
To see La Sagrada Famila without construction and cranes is very hard; you have to be lucky. Since the church is still unfinished Barcelona keeps working on it. In Barcelona you hear echos of a forerver ongoing project since new sections are being designed throughout the years. If you visit Barcelona and find La Sagrada Famila wihout cranes and scaffolding it probably doesn't mean that the project is finished but that the local government has temporarily run out of money for the project. If you happen to get lucky and visit Barcelona during such a period, be sure to enjoy it and take a lot of pictures!
