What to visit in Barcelona

LA PEDRERA
Designed in the Art Nouveau style by the renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, the Milà house, also known as La Pedrera (which means quarry in Catalan), is within easy walking distance of the hotel. Located on Paseo de Gracia 92, this typical Gaudí work was built from 1906 to 1910 at the behest of the married couple Pere Milà i Camps and Roser Segimon i Artells. From the terraces you will delight in a fantastic view of the city, and you'll be able to visit one of the flats inside and appreciate the beauty of period design in every detail. The curved planes formed by straight lines give an exquisite finish to this magnificent work, an emblem of Barcelona that is well worth visiting.
THE BATLLÓ HOUSE
One of Antoni Gaudí’s best known works, the Batlló house bears the hallmark and personality of the Catalan architect during his naturalist period. Despite the fact that the assignment was a complete remodelling, from 1904 to 1906, of an existing building, Gaudí infused this work, located in Paseo de Gracia 43, with great creative freedom, making it fully his own. In the same block you can appreciate the work of other Art Nouveau architects such as the Amatller house, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch; the Lleó Morera house, by Lluís Domènech i Montaner; and the Miralles house, by Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia. This clustering of works of the same period in a single city block, combined with the artists' ego, has given rise to its popular appellation: the Apple of Discord.
THE PASEO DE GRACIA
A stroll along one of the world’s most famous avenues, with its combination of luxurious display windows showing the best national and international brands and works of Art Nouveau architecture listed as World Heritage buildings, is a unique sensation. Only in the Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona’s main avenue, can you find the combination of luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Yves Sant Laurent, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and major Spanish brands like Mango, Zara or Vinçon, with the works of architects of the calibre of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It’s the ideal avenue to make a day of shopping and culture, and to top it off (or take a break) in one of the many tapa bars and design restaurants such as Brown, Fish or Tragaluz, that you’ll find along the way.
THE RAMBLA CATALUNYA
Barcelona’s backbone! One of the city’s most central and attractive thoroughfares. It is lined by clothing stores, restaurants, bars, terrace bars and cinemas. The Rambla, whose centre is a broad pedestrian area dotted with trees and benches to relax on, comes out onto the Plaza Catalunya. The extension of this boulevard is called Las Ramblas, one of the city’s most legendary streets because of its abundant flower and pet stalls, as well as the street actors who perform there.
PLAZA CATALUNYA
The Plaza de Cataluña is the largest and most centrally located square in Barcelona. With a surface area greater than five hectares, it is the space that joins the old city core with the newer urban expansion area.This urban hub is the starting point for such major city thoroughfares such as the Rambla, the Paseo de Gracia, the Rambla de Cataluña or the Rondas de Universidad and Sant Pere, Pelai street and the Avenida del Portal del Ángel, Barcelona’s major commercial artery and once the site of a gate in the city walls.
LAS RAMBLAS
This is one of the most emblematic streets in Barcelona. It connects the Plaza de Cataluña (Plaça de Catalunya in Catalan), the city's nerve centre, with the old port. Las Ramblas are full of people all day and into the wee hours of the morning. The walk is peppered with newsstands, stalls selling flowers, mimes, draftsmen, cafeterias, restaurants and shops. There are several points of interest in La Rambla, such as the Palacio de la Virreina (the Vicereine’s palace), the colourful Boquería market, and the famous Liceo theatre, where operas and ballets are performed. The avenue comes out onto the old port at Portal de la Paz square, where the celebrated statue of Columbus stands.
ANTONI TÀPIES FOUNDATION
The foundation was created in 1984 by the acclaimed Catalonian artist Antoni Tàpies to promote the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art. The building, on Aragón street, was constructed by Art Nouveau architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner between 1881 and 1885. It was one of the first buildings to integrate industrial typology and technology, combining iron and exposed brick, into the fabric of the city centre. In addition to housing one of the most complete collections of Tàpies’ works and organizing exhibitions of them, the foundation combines the organization of temporary shows of other contemporary artists’ work, symposia, lectures and film series with the production of a variety of publications that accompany the activities.
MACBA
The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona (Barcelona museum of contemporary art) shows works created during the second half of the 20th century. It is located in the El Raval district, quite near the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea (Contemporary culture centre). The spectacular building that houses the museum is the work of American architect Richard Meier.
