Sagrada Família

Icône religieuse inachevée empreinte d’une profonde valeur culturelle et arborant une esthétique incomparable, la basilique de la Sagrada Familia est une merveille stupéfiante. Gaudí commença à travailler sur ce temple absolument surréaliste en 1882, et c’est aujourd’hui un célèbre site inscrit au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO. Initialement planifiée comme une modeste église néogothique, la Sagrada Familia est incontestablement devenue le bâtiment le plus emblématique de Barcelone. Gaudí s’éloigna du style néogothique régnant à la fin du XIXe et au début du XXe siècles, donnant à son architecture un sens symbolique et donnant naissance au mouvement du modernisme catalan. Des détails complexes comme des piliers ressemblant à des palmiers dont les bases sont en forme de tortues, des couleurs attrayantes, des influences du style baroque et des matériaux allant de carreaux de mosaïque à un éventail de pierres, sont réunis pour créer un chef-d’œuvre absolu.

Montjuïc

Towering over the city at 173 meters (570 feet) is this scenic hill overlooking the sea. Montjuïc remained uninhabited until after the Middle Ages despite the fact that the Jewish quarter in Barcelona had already extended to the nearby Miramar area. The first path to the summit opened in 1607, and in 1640, a fortress was built to resist Spanish invasions during the Catalan Revolt.

Please note that while the park is free to visit, Montjuïc Castle charges an admission fee.
