Designed by Antoni Gaudi, the infamous Catalan architect, Sagrada Família is the largest unfinished Roman Catholic Church in the world. Construction began in 1882 and over 135 years later, the church is still incomplete. It is a popular tourist attraction and with such a unique design, it is not hard to see why. Gaudi’s unique and eclectic style can be observed in some of his other works such as Parque Güell, Casa Mila, Palacio Güell and Casa Vicens.
Park Güell, Barcelona, Spain
This one’s probably more for the football fans. Although, even if you’re not into football, this is an experience you would not want to miss if you happen to be in Barcelona. Barcelona Football Club is one of the best teams in the world and in Lionel Messi, they have the very best player in the world (yes, he’s better than Ronaldo). With a capacity of 115,000 seats, the atmosphere is simply breathtaking.
Apart from the architectural sites and sporting events, there are also many other attractions for tourists, such as bars, night clubs, restaurants, the harbours and the beaches. When the weather is warm and sunny, going down to the beach and relaxing on the sand would be the main thing to do for many tourists. What more could you want?
