Barcelona Sightseeing
Sagrada Familia.

This is one of Gaudí's unfinished masterpieces and pays tribute to the Sagrada family. La Sagrada Familia the magnificent surreal church is designed by Gaudí. While still unfinished it's like no other church you'll ever see: Its design is a combination of a dragon's cave and a castle made from whipped cream. You can take an elevator up one of the spires but be prepared to cover your ears the bell may gong while you're up there. The view is awe & vertigo inspiring.

Castell de Montjuic.

Rising above it all, you can have spectacular views over the city from this 18th century castle that was built on top of ruins dating from the 17th century. D. Ralphs: A fine place to visit with military exhibits. Wonderful views of Barcelona and the port. A cablecar takes you there past a small fairground and the whole visit is not expensive.

La Casa Mila.

La Casa Mila (nicknamed La Pedrera) is the last wonderful building that Gaudí designed. It is built between 1905 and 1910 and has beautiful ornamental balconies and an extraordinary chimneys. There may be long queues for the entrance and you may fiind the entrance fee steep. So if you're not into a full guided tour, you can go into the exposition hall on the first floor. It shows expositions of contemporary artists and entrance is free.

You get a good impression of the building too, although you miss the chimneys on the roof. The museum in the attic provides interesting information about Gaudi and his methods of designing. The roof is fun to explore and offers great views of Passeig de Gracia. Best of all is the reconstructed Art Nuveau apartment on the top floor. The designs and furnishings are breathtakingly beautiful.

Picasso Museum.

As one would probably predict based on the name of the place, the Picasso Museum has nothing but Picasso paintings. Make sure you set aside a few hours to accomodate this event. Waiting in line is at least a good half hour or so, and tourists should watch out for pickpockets. There is a gift shop that sells images of Picasso's works as postcards, as well as many other souveneir items. There are many side shops that sell the same thing, and sometimes they are cheaper.
