Barcelona is full of doozies you could never miss. Most of the city’s architecture was made by
the famous Antoni Gaudi’. You can immediately notice it strolling along Passeig de Gracia
neighborhood. There are situated Casa Batllo’ and Casa Mila’, two really particular and
creative buildings both declared UNESCO world heritage. The color power and the originality
are the essence of Casa Batllo’ while Casa Mila’, also called La Pedrera, is characterized by
stones (as “Pedrera” means stone mine) cunningly organized in a smooth out way just to
remind the soft waves of the sea.
Another unmissable place is Parc Guell. This park, collocated on the top of a hill, is the most
amazing one of the city. It’s not only a simple public park but a very open air museum where
you can contemplate other Gaudi’s works. The most typical and captivating things are the
super bright and colorful mosaics on the terrace and weird animals as lizards made of glass.
Then you must go sight-seeing on Montjuic, which is a high mount with a very breath-taking
panorama. There you should visit the huge medieval castle which was a military fortress in the
past, and the MNAC museum namely the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. There it can be
found a large collection of paintings, sculptures and even photographs made by a lot of really
famous artists as Picasso, Dali’, Velazquez, Goya etc… and also an almost complete collection
of Romanesque art.
The last but not the least stage has to be the MACBA. It’s not only a contemporary art museum
completely made of glass, but above all, it’s a wonderful place where you can cherish your day
sitting at one of the dozens bar outdoor that you can find there, and admiring the incredible
tricks made by expert skaters! You will be really surprise watching of what even kids can make
with their skateboards! In that square you will get directly into the real Barcelona street life.
