Unique buildings

Basilica of la Sagrada Família

Basilica of la Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família is Antoni Gaudí"s best-known work and has become an undisputed symbol of Barcelona. This unique modern temple has been under construction since 1882, and is expected to be completed by 2026.
Sant Pau Recinte Modernista

Sant Pau Recinte Modernista

The Modernista Sant Pau Complex was built between 1905 and 1930 and designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a garden city for nursing the sick. After being used as a public hospital for a century, its newly refurbished pavilions shine again in all their splendour. A visit to this exceptional architectural ensemble is a unique experience.
Casa Comalat

Casa Comalat

Like a tribute to Gaudí, the Casa Comalat contains many elements of Gaudí"s architecture, and is one of the most original examples of home-grown art nouveau in Barcelona: modernisme. Two distinct façades, both of them showing the influence of the curve redolent of the work of the Reus-born maestro, arouse our curiosity to go and take a closer look at this beautiful and unique building.
Casa Terradas -

Casa Terradas - "Casa de les Punxes"

A "large Gothic castle" standing in the middle of Barcelona"s Avinguda Diagonal catches the eye of any visitor to the city. The "Casa de les Punxes" (House of Spikes) is really a residential block built in the shape of medieval castle which is one of the most recognisable modernista landmarks on the Barcelona skyline.
Casa Calvet

Casa Calvet

The Casa Calvet de Barcelona (1899) is one of Antoni Gaudí"s earliest buildings. Some people consider it his most conservative work but it also contains markedly modernista elements, such as the façade which terminates in a curve and the attic balconies, which look like something from a fairy tale. The ground floor now houses a restaurant.
