Discover art city Barcelona
One of the first things you "must" see in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia church, or the Basilica i Temple Expiatori de La Sagrada Familia. Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí began building this extraordinary masterpiece in 1882. This life's work will be completed in 2026 after 144 years. Gaudí also designed the urban garden Park Güell where the colorful mosaic takes center stage. In addition, do not miss Camp Nou, a soccer stadium where you can feast your eyes...what an experience for soccer fans! Of course there is also the possibility to do different bike/walking tours through Barcelona during your weekend break and of course enjoy delicious tapas.
