Parc de la Ciutadella is an oasis of calm in the busy city. This is Barcelona’s largest park and certainly one of the most beautiful sights in Barcelona. The park covers an area of 70 hectares and is where locals spend leisure time, play sports, celebrate birthdays, hang out and picnic. The park is home to sculptures, a lake, museums, a zoo and the beautiful ‘font de la Cascada’. This magnificent structure with waterfall and fountain is Josep Fontsère’s masterpiece with Antoni Gaudí’s help. Gaudí is best known for the La Sagrada Família and Park Güell.

Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf can be found just outside the city park and is definitely worth visiting in addition to the park.

Park Güell

Park Güell, Barcelona

Are you planning to visit Park Güell? See our information below!


The colourful Park Güell is one of the most famous sights in Barcelona. In addition to the many beautiful buildings in Barcelona, this sight is also by the famous architect Gaudí. The park was created over 100 years ago at the behest of wealthy entrepreneur Eusebi Güell.   

When the park was completed, Park Güell was intended for local residents. Because it became such a beautiful park with plenty of colourful works of mosaic art, it has now been taken over by tourists and hardly any local residents come, but that doesn’t make Park Güell any less impressive.  

For the most beautiful mosaic structures, you have to go to the monumental part of the park, for which you have to pay an entrance fee. This gives you a time slot to visit the most beautiful part of Park Güell. It’s a good way to limit and spread out the tourists. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Barcelona.

La Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família is Barcelona’s busiest landmark and the most famous masterpiece of modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. This gigantic basilica has been under construction since 1882. If all goes well, the Sagrada Família will finally be fully completed by the end of 2026.

One of the reasons why construction is taking so extremely long is because it can only be financed by gifts and donations. Fortunately, this goes a lot faster these days than a century ago. This is because tourists pay an entrance fee to see the inside of the church and that money is used for construction. So that’s why you also contribute a little bit, when visiting the cathedral. Meanwhile, construction has been going on for so long that part of the basilica is already in need of renovation.
