Top Three Places to Visit in Barcelona

I’ve always dreamed of going to Spain specifically to Barcelona. I’ve always been curious about the country maybe because my home country, The Philippines has been named after their past King and the Spanish settled in our country for more than 300 years. They also introduced Catholicism in the Philippines which has been the main religion of the majority of the population.

If I’d get a chance to visit Barcelona in the near future, I’d want to visit the following places:

Sagrada Familia

 

Top Three Places to Visit in Barcelona

I’ve seen countless pictures and I’ve heard a lot of things about the Sagrada Familia and I would definitely put this on the top of my list. The Sagrada Familia, a UNESCO Heritage Site would probably one of the most visited and most photographed landmark in Barcelona. It has been under construction for a very long time and it has been said that Antonio Gaudi dedicated his last years for this project until his death in 1926. The unique architecture captivated the interested of many including me.

La Pedrera

 

Casa Milá o La Pedrera

La Pedrera or used to be known as Casa Mila is another creation of Antonio Gaudi. It was built around 1905 to 1910 and officially completed in 1912. It was a unique structure especially during that era because of the bold forms of the stone facade. La Pedrera is another UNESCO World Heritage Site that can be found in Barcelona.

Museum Picasso

 

Musee Picasso

Museum Picasso houses the works of one of the greatest artists, Pablo Picasso. This would probably be one of the most visited museums in Barcelona due to its popularity to foreign tourists. The Museum Picasso often hosts exhibitions showcasing the works of Picasso and other great artists. Sometimes, they also hold lectures and seminars about Picasso’s work. It would be a great opportunity to learn about him and his art.

These are the ones on top of my list. It would however take some time before I could be able to travel again to Europe and get to visit Barcelona, Spain. While saving up for some money, I’ve been scouring the internet for the best options that I could take once I take this trip.

And during my search, I came across the new online apartment provider Wimdu. Upon checking out the website, I fell at ease with the navigation and variety of nice options that they have in Barcelona. It wouldn’t be that expensive especially if I’m going to share the apartment with my friends.

Although I’m still torn between using hostels, bed and breakfast or holiday rental in Barcelona, I might opt for the latter since I’m thinking that my next trip to Europe will be with two or three friends to minimize the cost.

If you’re thinking of doing the same thing, you might wanna check out Wimdu’s website and learn how to book your perfect private apartment.

  1. Let’s go there together! <3 LOL 😛

  2. Those are really three amazing places in BCN, especially La Sagrada Familia. Its magnificence is overwhelming! Be sure to check out Parc Guell, too. 🙂

  3. Traveling Ted says:

    Been to all three and all are great attractions. I agree with Pauline, make sure you check out Parc Guell as well.

  4. Nyle Keith Walton says:

    The Sagrada Familis basilica was only about one-quarter completed in 1958 when I first gazed upon it in amazement. Now that its interior is finished it must be a world wonder. Gaudi’s creations dominated the city. The Picasso Museum didn’t exist back in Franco-governed Barcelona. In 1958 one could dine for fifteen cents. It is no bargain now.

  5. Been to the top 2 and Parc Guell. Gaudi’s work is a stroke of a genius. You’ll love it. Good luck!

  6. Make sure to visit the beaches as well. Mataro is fairly quiet compared to the beaches in Barcelona.
