MONUMENTS IN BARCELONA THAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW
Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world. The touristic success of the Catalan capital is undoubted, with millions of tourists visiting it year after year.
For this same reason, it is usual that when we visit the main tourist attractions of this beautiful city we find large groups of people who, like us, come to see with their own eyes the wonders of Gaudí, Miró and other design geniuses.
This is why, in this article, we present some not so famous places as the Casa Batlló or the Sagrada Familia, but with an equally undeniable charm.
Join us in this tour of the hidden gems of Barcelona!
Casa Vicens is the first house designed by the well-known Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is his first job, just after finishing his university studies in architecture.
Today, we can visit this beautiful work of art with Mozarabic influences, full of bright colors and allegories of nature. Also, at Casa Vicens you will also find a museum with models, designs and letters written by Gaudí himself.
For all this and much more, do not miss the opportunity to visit the new Gaudi Museum – Casa Vicens.
This is probably the most famous mountain in Barcelona (next to the equally famous Tibidabo). Located right next to the sea, this hill hosts all kinds of tourist attractions. From its glorious entrance through the monumental Plaza España, passing through the magic fountain, the National Palace, Poble Espanyol or the Castle that crowns its summit.
In addition, it is a space that was the focus of activity during the Olympics held in 1992, since many of the sports facilities were there. Thus, it is worth mentioning the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium or the Palau de Sant Jordi.
“Laberinto de Horta” Park
The “Laberinto de Horta” Park (“parc of Laberint d’Horta” in Catalan) is a historic garden located in the Horta-Guinardó district of Barcelona. It is the oldest garden that is preserved in the city and is located in the former estate of the Desvalls family, on a hillside of the Collserola mountain range.
While you walk through these gardens, you will enjoy beautiful ponds, waterfalls, fountains and a canal that runs through the upper enclosure. In addition, the park of the labyrinth is one of the main attractions of this garden in which we will be surrounded by cut cypresses, as well as some environments of different styles, from the neoclassical to the romantic.
