MUHBA - Museu d'Història de Barcelona - Temple d'August

Barcelona"s Gothic Quarter you"ll come across one of the city"s best-kept secrets in a building on Carrer Paradís. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

As you enter the Casa de l"Ardiaca"s courtyard, you"ll find a building which is a fusion of all eras and styles.
Santa Maria del Mar

Santa Maria del Mar

The basilica of Santa Maria del Mar in Barcelona, also known as the "cathedral of La Ribera", is one of the most perfect examples of Gothic style architecture due to its harmonious proportions and the serenity of the ensemble.
Palau Güell

Palau Güell

The Palau Güell was designed by the young Gaudí and is a wonderful blend of medieval opulence and the architect"s unique exuberant style. Completed in 1890, the building was the private residence of Gaudí"s patron, Count Güell. The Palau Güell is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló

The colour and fantasy of the Casa Batlló captivates passers-by on the Passeig de Gràcia. Standing halfway up this elegant boulevard and in a strongly contrasting style to the neighbouring houses, the Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera, Gaudí"s building reveals the splendour of an architect who was able to work on this project with total creative freedom, Antoni Gaudí.
