Barcelona is the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region and is well-known for its art and architecture. Make La Sagrada Familia your first stop, a basilica with museum tours and city views. If possible, do book your tickets in advance, since this is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Barcelona. Then, take a 20-minute walk to Casa Milà, an impressive cultural center with exhibitions and concerts. Walk on for another 7 minutes and you will land yourself at Casa Batlló, another historical landmark not to be missed. Created by architect Antoni Gaudi, the extraordinary art decorations featuring the curved dragon-roofed apartment block, now a museum, is definitely a masterpiece worth your time.
