I’ve always wondered what makes me so passionate about travelling and I think I’ve found the answer: each trip gives me something new to take home with me. Even when I repeat destinations, I still found the trip exciting.

Barcelona is one of my favorite cities and I just can’t get enough of it. During my last trip, I had to attend a wedding, which left me little time to tour the place..

The day after the event, while drinking a coffee at the Ayre Hotel Rosellón terrace, I decided to spend the morning visiting the buildings designed by Gaudí. Here are my five stops:

Sagrada Familia

This massive gothic temple is decorated with colorful windows. The architect died before the building could be finished and nowadays, it’s still under construction.

Parque Güell

This park is one of the biggest architectural creations in Europe and it’s considered a World Heritage site. Its unique design makes it very attractive for visitors.

Casa Figueras

This building is considered the most personal creation of Gaudí and it finally was open to the public two years ago. It has Neo Gothic elements and plenty of natural light.

Casa Milá

Also knows as ‘La Pedrera’, it’s located on the Paseo de Gracia. It was commissioned by the MIlà family and it’s fully furnished.

Casa Batlló

This house is by far my favorite piece. Gaudí was in charge or redesigning the building so he transformed it completely. It’s façade is full of colour and the inside was inspired by the sea.
