Sagrada Familia Cathedral is a key tourist attraction and one of the most striking monuments to experience in the city of Barcelona.
✦ Why I love Barcelona
My first time in Spain was in Madrid. And I fell in love with the city from the street performers to the food scene, to the laid back lifestyle, to the history, to the weather and to the plethora of activities.
One year down the line, we were back in Spain. And this time it was a visit to Barcelona. The truth is, I fell in love with the city of Barcelona too.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this city is full of unforgettable sights and monuments. Besides, it’s home to one of the world’s most beloved soccer teams, Barcelona FC.
✦ Why You Should Visit Sagrada Familia Cathedral
Sagrada Familia Cathedral is one of the most famous buildings in Barcelona. It is a large Roman Catholic church that is still under construction to date. It is one of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpieces and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
On the last day of our visit to the city of Barcelona, we decided to visit a church. This is because it was on a Sunday and it was also on our list of things to do while in this city.
