Barcelona — the place you must visit before you die

Barcelona, the multicultural capital of Spain’s Catalonia district, is renowned for its art and architecture. I am amazed by Gaudi’s masterpieces and Spanish cuisine, therefore, going to Spain is certainly on my bucket list. I went to Barcelona in last Easter holiday, that was around late March to mid-April. The weather was super good and I have fallen in love with this beautiful city!


 

 

 

La Barceloneta

I can tell you that the beach of La Barceloneta is the most lively and energetic place in Barcelona. Plenty of small bars or clubs are along the beachside, you can grasp a drink and embrace the gorgeous sunset beside the seashore. I can reminisce how spectacular the view was (daydreaming…


 

 

 

Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia is an enormous incomplete Roman Catholic church in Barcelona. Antoni Gaudí was the one who designed it and his work is considered as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Principally, there is no flat surface in the church; the embellishment comprises numerous nonfigurative shapes, such as curves and sharp points. Every single detail, like the iron palings for terraces and staircases, are full of curvilinear amplification. I was completely stunned by the spectacular masterwork of Gaudi.

Casa Batllo

Casa Batlló is a well-known house in the center of Barcelona. Antoni Gaudí restructured and renovated a formerly built building into a modern one. You would be astounded by delicate ornamentation inside the house, particularly the asymmetrical elliptical windows and chiseled stone statue.


 

 

 

 

Park Guell

The design idea of Park Güell is to bring the harmony and tranquility to the public. You can find the buildings and sculptures in the park are imaginative and extraordinary with multicolored mosaic and uncommon pattern. At the highest point in the park, it presents the most comprehensive scene of Barcelona and the coast.


 

 

 

 

Camp Nou

Camp Nou, the biggest stadium in Spain and Europe with 99,354 seat capacity, is the home stadium of FC Barcelona. It was such an unforgettable experience that I did watch Lionel Messi and Neymar played their match in this stadium! That was really a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I would not forget how exciting the match was.
