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. There’s so much more to see and experience at Barcelona so check out these top Airbnb Plus homes in Barcelona!
When vintage artwork meets modernity, this lovingly restored apartment for up to 5 guests is what you get. Bright colors are showcased throughout, offsetting 1930s high-vaulted brick ceilings and traditional Barcelona tile floors. Set in the heart of Dreta de l'Eixample, you will be within walking distance of many historical landmarks in Barcelona. Apart from La Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà and Casa Batlló, try visiting Plaça de Catalunya, a sculpture-filled square lined with shops – a perfect place to people-watch. There are also a couple of shopping malls and eateries in the district.
