CASA AMATLLER

Now this is what you call a home makeover. The Amatller family invited Catalan architect Cadafelch to give their mansion a fresh look and this is what they got. The Neo Gothic home is part of the famed Block of Discord, which features works by Cadafelch, Gaudi and Montaner.

PLACA REIAL

If you want to do some people watching this square in the centre of Barcelona is the place to do it. Find it near Las Ramblas.

PARK GUELL

This UNESCO Heritage Site is filled with the striking works of Gaudi. More than four million people visit this colourful confection each year, which is why the park only releases so many tickets per hour.

PALAU DE LA MUSICA CATALANA

If the colourful tiled columns don’t blow you away, the interior of this concert hall, which was built in 1902 will. You can book a private tour of the UNESCO Heritage Site and you can also book a private concert too.
