Barcelona’s famous artworks – 72 Hours in Barcelona #2

Everyone who is interested in arts and architecture, should definitely visit Barcelona!
Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí and Antoni Gaudí are all amazing artists and had a tremendous impact on Barcelona’s tourist industry.
Today, I will be sharing with you my favourite places and museums in Barcelona, where you can take great photographs and enjoy creative artwork.

Casa Batlló and Casa Milà

First of all Antoni Gaudí the famous Spanish architect who was also a representative of the Modernisme Català.
He created two popular „mansions“ in Barcelona, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà.

Casa Batlló is situated near Placa Catalunya (which I already mentioned in my last post) and was built in 1877.
This house looks so magical and I would have loved see the inside of the house, but unfortunately the queue was too long and we did not have enough time to wait.

Gaudí finished Casa Milà in 1910 and created it for the Milà Family.
He even created a natural air conditioning system.
Additionally, the villa has a great roof terrace where you have the perfect view on the Sagrada Familia.

La Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is a gigantic Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, also designed by Antoni Gaudí. The construction of the church began in 1882 and it is still not finished yet.
The guides told us that the construction is financed by donations and not by taxes.
Anyway, they plan on having completed the Sagrada Familia by 2026, the centenary of Antoni Gaudí’s death.
You should definitely go inside the church, since it is breathtaking and miraculous!

Park Güell

The construction of Park Güell by Gaudí commenced in 1910 and was finished four years later. Gaudí planned a great park with 60 different villas wich should have been purchased before the construction began.

Nevertheless, his purposes failed, since nobody wanted to purchase the unfinished villas. Consequently, he was not able to finish the park and it now consists of three villas, instead of 60.

Anyway, I have never visited such a beautiful park before and if you want to visit Barcelona, you will not regret visiting Park Güell.

Picasso and Miró

As I am interested in arts in general, it was a pleasure for me to visit the Picasso and the Miró museum. The Picasso museum shows the artist’s work from 1895 to 1904 and it is very impressive to see the development of his artwork. I would highly recommend to buy tickets online, since you do not have to wait that long to get your tickets.
The Miró museum is located at the foot of Montju
ïc, it is devoted to modern artwork .

Visiting Barcelona was an amazing experience for me and I can recommend it to anyone who is also interested in culture, arts and architecture!

Have a nice day and stay tuned!

    1. That is often the case when I’m travelling! When I’m back home, I read tons of articles and I know what I will do and where I will go the next time I visit the city 🙂

  1. Liebe Sophie,
    was für wunderschöne Bilder von meiner Lieblingsstadt!
    Ich bin zwar beruflich einmal die Woche dort, aber die Sehenswürdigkeiten spielen dabei leider kaum eine Rolle.
    Umso schöner ist es diese tollen Frühlingsbilder zu sehen, die definitiv Fernweh und Lust auf einen Citytrip machen.
    Allerliebste Grüße,
    Susa

    1. Vielen Dank! Ja es ist schade, wenn man beruflich unterwegs ist und nicht so viel sieht, aber dafür bekommt man dann die andere Seite zu Gesicht, die man als Touri nicht sieht 🙂
      Liebe Grüße!
