5 Iconic Antoni Gaudi Masterpieces You Should Not Miss When in Barcelona

Antoni Gaudi was a Catalan architect who lived from 1852 to 1926. Gaudi has a unique style and has created stunning masterpieces across Barcelona. The well known Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's most-visited monument in Spain and is yet incomplete. It is believed that the monument will be completed in 2026. Almost 100 years after the death of the legend. Lastminute.com users have 5 Antoni Gaudi masterpieces that are a must-visit the next time you are in Spain. 



1. Le Sagrada Familia: The monument will have 18 towers and 12 of the towers will represent the apostles

Lastminute.com reviewer says "Weather as expected in February. You need something warm. Local food was fresh and delicious. Lots of fresh fruit to buy, very reasonably priced. Sightseeing attractions within walking distance of the hotel. Metro Station a few minutes walk from the hotel. Metro very easy to follow and quite regular. Gothic Quarter and BarcelonaCathedral.. Great, ticket includes entrance onto the roof, great views of Barcelona. Familia Sagrada very impressive, worth getting the ticket with audio tour to understand what you are seeing. Just walking around a feast for the eyes. Awesome architecture. Looking forward to going again!" 

2. Casa Calvet: Casa Calvet was built as a home and office for the textile manufacturer Pere Calvet

Lastminute.com reviewer says "Weather was pretty good for the time of year (April). Barcelona is an amazing city, with lots to do and see. The highlight has to be the Sagrada Familia church, which is absolutely incredible. La Pedrera and Parc Guel are other examples of Gaudi's architecture and are also well worth a visit." 

3. Casa Batllo: Casa Batllo was designed in a way that natural light illuminates every corner

Lastminute.com reviewer says "The weather was great. The food was lovely. I went to a number of sightseeing places like Sagrada Familia, Barcelona Cathedral, Catalonia, Muntjac, Casa Batilo, Robert Palau etc and it was a delightful experience admiring the architecture. A fantastic weekend break."  

4. Park Guell: The characteristic feature of Park Guell is that it was inspired by nature

Lastminute.com reviewer says "Weather was fantastic - warm sunshine, cloudless, blue skies in February. The tapas bars, pastry shops, and churros con chocolate were delicious and kept us well fed and watered. Lots to see and do in Barcelona. The obvious sights, Sagrada Familia and Gaudi's other buildings, as well as Parc Guell, are all well worth a visit, even if you don't go inside."

Lastminute.com reviewer says "There was plenty of choice of local cuisine close to our hotel. Our favourite was the tapas selections. Our trip was a city break so we had decided beforehand what we wanted to see during our stay. We managed to see everything on our list. The highlights were the Sagrada Familia - outstanding, really takes your breath away and Parc Guell, the mosaics and the view over Barcelona, again outstanding even if it was a bit of a hike to get there." 

5. Casa Mila: Did you know that Casa Mila has been featured in 15 movies?

Lastminute.com reviewer says "A beautiful and inspiring city with hidden gems around every corner. From Art and Architecture to shopping, theatre culture and great food. Barcelona has it all. Whether a grown-up break or a family getaway there is something for everybody and all age groups. The Sagrada Familia is breathtaking as is Mila Casa. Seeing the city is easy and informative on the hop on, hop off bus and is really reasonable for such a great experience. The Metro is also quick, cheap and easy to use. I would strongly recommend you spend some time walking between your chosen places to visit as this is how we found some fantastic and unique art and gift shops carrying original pieces that captured the essence of the city. The local people are friendly and helpful and the prices in the shops and restaurants very reasonable for a capital city! All in all, a wonderful place to visit, but five days is not long enough to do everything there is to see."
