Exploring La Sagrada Familia without a guide means you may miss out on the UNESCO World Heritage Site's hidden details and secret symbols. Make the most of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpiece and beat lines often in excess of three hours on a skip-the-line tour. A choice of entry times allows you to be flexible with your vacation schedule: Opt for the earliest time slot for a less-crowded experience at the Barcelona icon.

The Monumento a Rius i Taulet is a sculpture that stands in tribute to Francesc de Paula Rius i Taulet, a Spanish lawyer and politician who served as the mayor of Barcelona four times and considered to have contributed greatly to the bringing the first ever International World's Fair to be held in Spain in 1888. The monument consists of an obelisk, which stands on a pedestal. Atop the pedestal stands a bust of on Francesc de Paula Rius i Taulet, flanked by two allegorical figures of work and victory. Behind the bust and back of the obelisk is a winged figure, also presenting an olive branch toward the triumphal arch at the opposite side of the square. Worth a look if close by.

Free Visit Duration: 5 minutes. Rius I Taulet monument is outside the entrance to the Parque de la Ciudadela. Francesc de Paula Rius i Taulet was a Catalan lawyer and politician. He was mayor of Barcelona in four different non-consecutive periods. He was the man who brought the 1888 Universal Exhibition to the city. Rius I Taulet refused Eiffel Tower's plan to be built in Barcelona since he considered it as ugly and way too expensive.
