    This is the most amazing, awe inspiring, breathtaking church you will ever see. The stunning details are to be found in every corner, arch, tower and stained glass window. It is a monument to God and to the vision of Antoni Gaudi. Everybody should visit this edifice at least once in their lifetime

    If you are a Gaudi enthusiast then you will want to take in Parc Guell. If you enjoy nature, it is also great to see the beautiful garden, magnificent structures and panoramic views of the city and ocean. If you only have a short time in Barcelona, you may want to take in some of the other amazing attractions and save this for second or third day

    Excellent spot to buy spices, see people, see all kinds of food, and try out everything. It is very crowded and not enough places for people to sit and eat so we end up eating while walking.

    I booked the tour through GetYourGuide for 10 euros. The young guide was very knowledgeable. Would not recommend for people with limited mobility - there are lots of stairs. The cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit. Also, read Ildefonso Falcones' book "La Cathedral del Mar" for some background info.

    I would suggest anyone visiting Barcelona for the first time to have a visit to this first house of Gaudi. The house was interesting and accessible. There are also different information concerning the history of the house and Gaudi. The staff there were also friendly and helpful. Finally, a €3 gift coupon was provided for use at their souvenir store, which made the visit all the more merrier.

    Very interesting home and building. I love Gaudi and his brilliance and this was a great example of his work and detailing.

    Amazing piece of history that serves as a marker of time when reverence mattered. I took my wife and three daughters and this was my favorite stop in Barcelona.

    Absolutely beautiful building situated in a stunning setting. The area around the museum is extremely picturesque. Unfortunately none of the fountains were operational due to the drought, but it was still fabulous to see. We arrived 10 minutes before they opened and bought our tickets on site rather than in advance. It was not very crowded there in the morning, but as it neared noon there were a lot more people everywhere. We were lucky enough to be up on the roof by ourselves and took some lovely pictures. Unfortunately the day we were there they must have been setting up for something big as there were extremely tall black partitions around the entire perimeter of the oval hall preventing you from entry or seeing the building very well. We could only skirt the perimeter to get to the café. It looked like catwalks all around the roof area also. I was very disappointed that we did not get to experience being in the oval hall, but that was just bad timing. The art collection is varied and well laid out. We spent about 3 hours here including having a snack in the café.

    We attended one night, hoping that we could enjoy the spectacular view of the fountain and the city. Sadly, the fountain was turned off, I guess because of the winter months. We were still able to enjoy some rather spectacular views down into Barcelona, which made the trip worthwhile. Just a shame that the fountain was not on at the time. Do make sure you go to the very top of the steps/escalators.

    Lovely park. The entrance is great and the monument is beautiful. We saw also some elderly persons dancing. What was a nice surprise was at the back of the park, after you pass the second lake with boats and you go for the parliament. Well, be prepared and take some seeds with you as you will find the green parrots. And they can come to pick from your hand.

    Nice visit, quite good for young kids (5-10) for teen could be boring. Various practices experiment, tour through flooded forest, dinosaur skeleton and few more trick. A lot of stuff needs extra ticket. Very far from the center!

    We explored this fabulous place independently. The experience was outstanding. The architecture was impressive and the tile work, especially on the ceilings is a real standout. It's a short walk from Sagrada Familia and well worth the time.

    Walking down or up Las Ramblas is a must if in Barcelona. It has been cleaned up over the years, the street performers have gone as have some of the street vendors and now it is classier and more pleasant. Just off the street is the old town with its narrow streets and interesting shops , restaurants and historic sights.
