Antoni Gaudí. The genius in Barcelona

Art and culture route
If Barcelona has a defined character it's thanks to the aesthetics that the architect Gaudí featured in some of his most emblematic buildings. A world renowned landmark. 

The work of Gaudí beats strongly in l'Eixample, where you can see the Casa Batlló, one of the most photographed façades in the city due to the variety and composition of its colours and shapes.

Continuing along the Passeig de Gracia, you will come across one of Gaudí's most emblematic works of art, the Casa Milá, better known as La Pedrera, named a World Heritage by Unesco and recognisable by the spectacular wave like feature of its façade and the originality of its terrace, covered with innovative chimneys.

If you go futher into l'Eixample, you will find his most famous and world renowned work of art, the Sagrada Familia, an extraordinary basilica that has become a symbol of the city.

Gaudí's work is as polyhedral as his buildings: you have to walk a bit further to reach one of the most unique parks in the world, the Güell Park, where you can see how the architect's work is based and founded around the laws of nature to create a perfect work of art to walk through, with incredible views, such as the La Colina de Les Tres Creus, a watchtower from where you can look over Barcelona and see its close relationship with the sea.

Back in the city, you can visit the Palau Güell, which brings together the curious magnificence of the architect with a certain medieval atmosphere.

Superb views from the Bellesguard Tower

At the foot of Collserola, the Torre de Bellesguard, is a medieval house with the appearance of a castle, with a tower and battlements, and the characteristic stamp of Gaudí. Open since 2013, it owes its name to the beautiful views that can be seen from this point. Beside it is a viaduct that was also built by the architect.
