History & Culture Guide

The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona has a mind-blowing culture that stems from the city’s 2000 years of remarkable history. Here are a few places we never miss when in town…

La Sagrada Familia

The awe-inspiring giant Basilica, is probably the most famous work of designer and architect Gaudi. The building of La Sagrada Familia started in 1882, and won’t be complete for some time yet – they’re not lazy, it’s just that Gaudi’s vision was so extensive there is a lot to create. However, you’ll get a fascinating glimpse of the unique and highly stylised architecture both inside and out of this unique building.

Camp Nou

If you love your sport, then you just can’t miss out on this historical Museum of FC Barcelona. Indulge in their extraordinary history and feast your eyes on cabinets heaving with their prestigious awards, including the Champions League Cup. You can even experience the feeling of triumph players get after a win, and lift the trophy over your head for that must have photo.

Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catalana

Like an outrageously designed spacecraft, the inverted dome of this concert hall will have you filling your camera with hundreds of photos. Explore the grand stage area, which features a renovated church organ flanked by immense stained glass windows, heavily influenced by Gothic and Modernism styles. Also, being an UNESSCO World Heritage site means the Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catalana has an impressive history for you to uncover.
