Antoni Gaudí took the architectural style known as Art Nouveau a step further and, some believe, absurd. The imaginative and outrageous buildings he created in Barcelona have become landmarks and feature attractions in this Catalan city.
The first is the Sagrada Familia Church, officially known as the Expiatori de la Sagrada Família or Sagrada Familia. It is one of the most unconventional churches in Europe and is also unfinished. So if you look down from their tower, you can see the work in progress below.
It is futile to look for sheer bluntness in Gaudí’s La Pedrera, his last and most famous secular work; it looks more like a sculpture than a functional building. Be sure to climb on its roof – the chimney is said to be inspired by the image of Darth Vader in Star Wars.

New for 2020, the stunning Casa Batllo, with mask-shaped balconies and undulating facades, now offers an immersive “10D experience” using augmented reality, projection, binaural sound, motion sensors and 1,000 Multiple screens allow visitors to immerse themselves in the experience and take a journey into the spirit and genius of Antoni Gaudí.
Overlooking the city from a hilltop, Parc Güell’s views and gardens are surrounded by wondrous creatures – salamanders, fish, octopuses – and a bright ceramic beet mosaic design. An imaginative tower near the entrance, mostly covered in faience. Unlike most buildings, Gaudí attracts children and adults who are completely uninterested in architecture for one simple reason – they look interesting.
