  • I have seen pictures of the Sagrada Familia and thought I had a good idea of what to expect but it is so much more impressive that I could have ever imagined. It is massive and so minutely detailed...

  • Extremely special building and architecture. The tour to the tower is not worth it. Yes, you get a good view but you only take an elevator to the top and have to walk many stairs down in a narrow...

  • The most amazing building I've ever visit. I can't describe the amount of beauty and astonishing view of this cathedral. I love that. Around the cathedral there are a lot of cafe and restaurants and you can enjoy the excellent ice creams and food and watch the cathedral in different views. Every night I did that and never got enough of that. Also there is a big park around and you can use WC and also the metro station is just next to the cathedral.
  • The “Bible of Stone”! This was actually my absolute favorite attraction in Barcelona! I would recommend strongly to book a tour with a guide. The information about this place seems bottomless and I just loved discovering all the Bible stories in the facade of the building. It’s such a beautiful building and I spend a long time marveling at it from the outside and then the same at the inside. It’s just absolutely breathtaking!!! My absolute favorite church that I’ve ever visited and I’ve seen quite a few famous churches!
