The legacy of the famous Catalan architect is translated into amazing works of art of imagination, evocative and seductive, which have grown to become the main identity of the city. Perform Gaudí route and see his major works is a must-do activity if you visit Barcelona. We show you a selection of works you should not miss. Discover them!

Sagrada Familia

Known worldwide as the symbol of Barcelona, Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's masterpiece. An impressive unfinished temple that reflects the most creativity and artistic vision of its author. Walk inside, inspired by nature, admire its fascinating facades and take advantage of the visit to climb the towers and enjoy superb views of the city.

Parc Güell

In the upper part of the city we find the Parc Güell, a place worth seeing in Barcelona. This is a huge garden with inclined columns, undulating forms, animal sculptures, and a colorful ornamentation made of ceramic pieces, which makes it magical and amazing place.

Casa Mila or La Pedrera

we continue the route of Gaudí with another of his famous works, La Pedrera, located on Passeig de Gràcia. It is a modernist building that represents what was the home of a bourgeois Catalan family in the early XX century. Their undulating forms, flying cornices, wrought iron balconies and roof are peculiar things that leave visitors marveled. Take the opportunity to enjoy the stunning towers and chimneys of the roof and the super panoramic view of the city center.

Casa Batlló

Casa Batllló is a mythical building of the modernist architecture of Gaudí. Its colorful facade, with its stained glass windows and the roof to simulate the back of a dragon are just some of the amazing features of this work. Walk inside and discover each of its corners like the particularly attractive patio and the roof.

Other works of Gaudí

While the above are the most famous modernist works, the Gaudí Route in Barcelona does not end here. There are other constructions of the architect that we recommend to see in Barcelona like the Casa Vicens, at the end of Passeig de Gràcia, and Casa Calvet Restaurant where you can enjoy good Catalan cuisine in a unique and distinguished place.
