Barcelona Sagrada Familia 

If you have only one hour in Barcelona, this should be it. La Sagrada Família was, and continues to be, controversial as many citizens deem La Sagrada Família the greatest achievement of Catalan building, others view the structure as a glaring, expensive parody of it.

Barcelona is a big city, but it’s the perfect size to discover on foot. Spend a day away from the metro and the tourist bus, and take your time strolling around and stopping to recharge with some of the city’s great gastronomic options.

Get Special Taste at the Boqueria Market

Barcelona’s most central produce market is one of the greatest sound, smell and colour sensations in Europe. It spills over with all the rich and varied bounty of fruit and vegetable stands, and seemingly limitless varieties of sea critters, sausages, cheeses, meats (including the finest Jabugo ham) and sweets.

According to some chronicles, there has been a market on this spot since 1217, and while today it is a tourist attraction in its own right, it has always been the place where locals come to shop.

La Catedral

Barcelona’s central place of worship presents a magnificent image. The richly decorated main facade, laced with gargoyles and the stone intricacies you would expect of northern European Gothic, sets it quite apart from other churches in Barcelona. The facade was actually added in 1870, although the rest of the building was built between 1298 and 1460. The other facades are sparse in decoration, and the octagonal, flat-roofed towers are a clear reminder that, even here, Catalan Gothic architectural principles prevailed.
