    This church was built between 1329 and 1383, and it is an outstanding example of pure Catalan Gothic.

    I bought the full entrance, that gives access to the church, the crypt, the balconies and the roof, and the upper gallery. All parts were very beautiful, except the crypt, which is totally naked.

    From the balconies and roof there is a spectacular view over Barcelona (158 steps, no lift).

    Walking through the narrow alleyways amid historic sites is quiet amazing. Plenty of cafes to take break; thoroughly enjoyed this magnificent neighborhood.

    Admirably dating from the early 1300s, it is a marvellous legacy in a tranquil area. Terrific Gothic is the hallmark, reflected in superb stone craft.

    A peaceful cloister is a highlight, complemented by the lovely church.

    It was a nice visit with an acceptable price, personally I think that is not worth to go there just for the house but definitely check it out when visiting Park Güell if you like historical pieces

    During my visit to Barcelona, it was exciting to visit the Olympic Complex which was the site of the 1992 Summer Olympics. As expected, this is a massive complex which includes a stadium, sports hall and swimming pools. One item that stood out in its uniqueness is a spire-like structure that looked like a modernistic sculpture. I was surprised to learn that it is actually a communications tower that obviously was indispensable in the Summer of 1992.

    I learned that the complex is currently used for special events. However, the swimming pools are now open to the public for use.

    We walked by this attractive building several times as we were in a hotel nearby. Very nice older structure, part of the gorgeous heritage of old architecture in this lovely city.

    There are lots of lovely things on this street, one of which was a large number of chocolate shops.

    The children were spoiled with chocolate milkshake and chocolate churros (sneakily it gave them the calorie hit they needed to keep walking, 7.5 miles this day!) If you want a sweet treat make it here. We went to Granja La Pallaresa and it was good!

    Parc del Fòrum is a modern place located in the surroundings of Barcelona city and close to the Mediterranean Sea, where you can walk, run, go to the beach or come to this place to see some temporal exhibitions. I came here with my almost 7 years old daughter to see "Expo Dinosaures", an exposition of large models of dinosaurs. A nice place to come with children, where they can see a lot of dinosaurs, see a documentary film and play with other children in a children area, where they can dig and find dinosaurs bonds ot they can go up to a "real" dinosaur. Small, but funny and too artificial.

    Casa Sayrach is a modernista building, but one of the last, built in 1918.
    The building was designed by Gabriel Borrell and built by Manuel Sayrach.
    Casa Sayrach hasn't overwhelming many datails, like many other modernista buildings.
    Casa Sayrach is more simple and classy, and it is a graceful building.

    This is nostalgic place and very artsy. Only take a few mins to go around the place and admire this beauty. You definitely gonna pass by this place when you go around the cathedral. Take a moment to step inside, it's free.

    If you face the statue, you will see a very medieval square, because modern houses will remain behind and to the side. The grey gloomy walls of the Santa Agata Chapel will be the backdrop for the statue of count Ramon Berenguer III by sculptor Josep Llimona i Bruguera installed here in 1888. The stylish architectural ensemble shows that the history of Barcelona doesn`t begin with Gaudi and Catalan modernism...

    A complete history of Barcelona in one place! From pre-roman, Roman, visigoths to the present day, an amazing place. Make sure you see the ruins downstairs - they span the city underground and you can see how this amazing place came into being..

    It's a park that could be enjoyed for all the family (and free). It's better to have a picnic there, because there are not any bar nor restaurant.

    During a walk within the gothic quarter there are many things to see, this is the oldest fountain in Barcelona, built in the mid 1300's the mosaic mural was added in recent times.
