In order to stretch our legs and get some fresh air, our first stop is Park Güell, a UNESCO World Heritage site designed by one of Barcelona’s most famous artists, Antoni Gaudí. The park is composed of gardens and architectural elements located on Carmel Hill with an amazing view of the city and the Mediterranean Sea.

DAY 4, Wednesday: After breakfast, we enjoy an extensive visit to Gaudi’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Família, Barcelona’s most iconic landmark. Construction of this unconventional yet grand basilica began in 1882 and still continues today. The stunning interior of the basilica is an imposing and ingenious design. In the same way that the façades are rich in symbolism, the layout of the church is also full of symbols. Every door, every column, and almost every area has its own symbolic significance. We continue to the modernist building, Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera, or the stone quarry, which is the last private residence designed by Gaudí. Built between 1906 and 1912, the building is loved for its unique shape and façade, winning it the ultimate plaudit as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
