Barcelona is like a world unto itself due to the number of experiences it offers for the senses. But if you don’t venture outside that world you’ll be missing the cosmos that lies beyond the city limits.
The Barcelona Bus Turístic is temporarily not operating. Soon we will be running the official hop-on hop-off tour service to enjoy the city's most emblematic places and buildings. Meanwhile we explain you why it is an experience you will not be able to miss when we will see you again!
In addition to its rich heritage, Barcelona and Catalonia in general, have important cultural traditions that we invite you to discover. Centuries of history have shaped festivals, traditions and popular celebrations that are still deeply rooted in the territory and its people today. We want to share this with all those who visit us! Currently, the health crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus prevents us from celebrating our festivities in normal circumstances; however, we hope that very soon we will be able to celebrate again as we have always done.
The Expiatory Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is one of the most brilliant examples of Catalan modernism and the masterpiece of the brilliant architect Antoni Gaudí. The city's most visited monument can be recognized from afar by its towers rising up to the sky. Up close, its impressive facades impact the visitor. The basilica is still under construction and is not expected to be completed until 2026.
Barcelona has a long and abundant architectural history. Worldly recognised as the capital of modernism for the great quantity and quality of works it treasures and for the figure of Antoni Gaudí, it also stands out for the samples of contemporary architecture and for a prominant medieval past that has left its mark on the city. Below we invite you to discover the most emblematic buildings in Barcelona from all periods.
