Don't miss in Barcelona

La Rambla

The La Rambla (Ramblas) boulevard in Barcelona is the most famous street and the most toured one in the city. It is so famous to such an extent that some will say that being in Barcelona and not visiting the boulevards equals to not being in Barcelona at all. The famous boulevards, the main lifeline of the city, connects the Catalonia plaza, located in the middle of the city, with the Columbus statue, located near the sea. The boulevard is 1.5 kilometers long and it regarded as the representative boulevard of the city. The most recommended hours to visit the boulevard are afternoon and in the evening in which you can enjoy a real classic Barcelona atmosphere.
From both sides of the boulevard there are narrow sidewalks and beside each sidewalk there is a one way road. In one side the traffic is towards the see and in the other side, the traffic is from the see toward the city. Between the two roads a long walkway exists. This is a pedestrian-only street with trees, kiosks, flowers stands, pets in cages for sale, artists displaying there hand made works and lots of street shows and "human statues". The meaning of the name La Rambla is taken from the Arabic words of "sandy land". Due to the fact that the boulevard is actually consisting of several parts, it got the name: "Ramblas". Although there is no doubt how much the boulevard is beautiful, interesting and lively and although one can spend so much time in it, just walking through or at the restaurants, the markets and museums located in them, pay also attention to the many interesting places located in both of its sides.
The left part of the city, when going down towards the sea, is the Gothic quarter, and the neighborhood extended on the right is Ravell.
Following are places that it is recommend not to miss:

  • Boqueria Market (La Boqueria) - This is the roofed food market, the popular and noisy one, in the heart of the boulevard. This is the most known and beloved one from all the markets in the long boulevards. This is a real charming market, full of colors and bustle of tourist and locals, in which you can find all the best and everything is in opulence and in order.
  • Wax Museum - A very nice and facile museum according to the best tradition of wax museums.
  • Colombus Monument - At the end of the boulevard, near the fountain in the entrance to the harbor, the Columbus monument is rising. At the top of the monument, an image of Columbus is pointing to the sea. We watched it, took a photo and moved on.
  • Placa Reial - An impressive architectonic enclave, found very near to the Rambla, in the old town. In the wide square area there are few nice coffee shops and restaurants. Once again… we watch it, took a photo and moved on.
  • Picasso Museum - Near the Rambla, inside the Gothic quarter, reside the Picasso museum in which you can see the beginning of Picasso road as an artist, lots of sketch from the days he was a young artist and also pictures from his blue era. We are not a big art fans but we got inside for a short tour and were not disappointed.
  • Catalonia Plaza - The central plaza in Barcelona, full of fountains, statues and hundreds of birds. A beautiful plaza surrounded with known brand stores and in the plaza itself a pleasant nightlife for tourists.

Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia ("Church of the holy family") church, the unfinished masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi, is one of the more popular attractions in Barcelona.
The church is regarded as one of the most noticeable symbols of the city, as an architectonic work of art all over the world and it is a "must see" and "must visit" site in Barcelona. The idea for building the church was raised by a group of Christian believers that put themselves a target to stop the process of abandoning the Christianity.
They thought that building a glorious church will strength the Christianity and bring the believers closer again.
In 1877 they bought land in the Eixample quarter, the luxurious quarter of these days, and appointed the architect Paula De Vilar to build a glorious Neo-Gothic church. The work of building was started in 1882. One tear later, after De Vilar died, the architect Antoni Gaudi, got into the picture, while he is 31 years old. He took on himself the rest of the work, and since than he actually devoted his life to the building of the church.
Instead of following the original plans, Gaudi changed the plans drastically. The Neo-Gothic style was replaced by a modernistic style, which Gaudi was one of its supporters.
In 1926, with the death of Gaudi, the building of only one frontage, one tower, the underground crypt and the arched niche were finished. The way to finishing the work was far away. Gaudi that used to change the church plans all the time, did not left clear and organized plans after he died. Although this fact, the architects participated in the work, had pretty much an idea about what Gaudi's plans were.
The last drawings of Gaudi showed a church that will finally be 95 meters long and 60 meters width. The church will be able include 13,000 people simultaneously in it. It will have 18 towers, 4 towers in each of one of its three sides, will symbolize the 12 Jesus messengers. The towers will be 90-120 meters tall. Other 4 towers will symbolize the Holy Scriptures, and they will surround the tallest tower, which will be 170 meters tall, and will symbolize Jesus himself. The latest tower will be dedicated to Maria, and will be built over the eastern arched niche.
Today, there are already two finished frontages and 8 finished towers. The work of building the roof over the center of the church – the Nave – was finishe in year 2000 only. Today most of the work is to complete the Nave and the Southern frontage, known as the glory frontage. This frontage will describe the life cycle of a human been from birth to death.
The first frontage, turning east, is named the Nativity Facade, and its building was finished when Gaudi was still alive. It is decorated in the Baroque style with animals and plants motives. In plant of it, the west frontage, that is named the Pheasant Facade. Its building was started in 1954, but only in 1987, statues describing different scenes of Jesus, made by Suvirak, were added to it.
Many elements from the nature are integrated in Gaudi's works, especially the height element that is trying to imitation to the tall trees.
Gaudi died (was run over by a tram in 1926) before he succeeded to complete the work that, based on estimations, are going to continue until 2041, due to the absence of Gaudi and also due to luck of funding. Most of the money arrives from donations today so the work progress depends on that. Gaudi is buried in the underground hall of the church.
Entrance into the Sagrada Familia is allowed and recommended. There is an entrance fee. Inside the cathedral there is an exhibition of the church plans, different documents and models showing Gaudi's work.
There is also a possibility to climb up using an elevator to the top of one of the towers. A beautiful sight is being seen from there.
The structure was announced by UNESCO as a world wide inheritance site.

The monument is a column rising to height of 60 meters, surrounded by lion’s statues and decorated with many other statues and decorations, to the memory of Christophe Columbus.
The monument symbolized the return of Christophe Columbus to back to Spain after leaving it in his searches after America.

In the north edge of the plaza there is a white bricks structure built in 1900 in order to serve as the bullfight arena of the city, and today serves as shopping center due to the fact that the bullfight culture did not strike roots in Catalonia.
The area behind the arena was in the past area of the municipal slaughterhouse, into which the bulls were lead after the bullfight. In 1980 the area of this municipal slaughterhouse was changed to be today's Joan Miro Park. In the years passed since the universal exhibition ended till today, many changes were done in the plaza, but till today, it preserve the two weird towers located in the entrance to the exhibition area. Exhibitions and fairs hosted by the city are taking place in this place also today, and the two towers are part of the entrance to the site. The towers were built in 1929 towards the universal exhibition, from red bricks, according the model of the bells towers in the San Marco plaza, in Venice. The towers are 47 meters height and look a little bit bizarre: on the top of each one of them there is a flag of Christian temple and a sharpened pyramid above it.
