Sightseeing in Barcelona
Even in its unfinished state after over 100 years of construction, Gaudi’s masterpiece is one of the world’s most spectacular buildings. Its 18 soaring spires represent Jesus, Virgin Mary, the apostles and the evangelists and the incredible complexity of its design displays Gaudi’s genius as an architect way ahead of his time. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, it’s expected to be completed during the next 15 years.
La Rambla is a less than one mile stretch of road connecting Barcelona’s Old Town hearths of El Raval and the Gothic Quarter. This pedestrian boulevard is actually comprised of several different streets which are connected together, which is why it is often referred to as Las Ramblas―its plural Spanish title. The eye-catching boulevard is lined with trees; however, its biggest appeal is the historical sites, entertainment, and shopping attractions here. This bustling street is no stranger to visitors. Since the 15th century, the strip has been a haven for businesses, visitors, and street entertainers.
As tourists walk along the street, plenty of kiosks selling a range of items, including flowers, newspapers, candles, souvenirs, and local snacks, can be found. La Boqueria street market operates at the northern end, while the Center for Santa Monica Art adds a touch of class to La Rambla’s fascinating culture. The Metro train network runs along the length of the boulevard, which makes it easy to access hotels at Las Rambla. Both night and day buses are available, too.
