The highlights of your tour include:

La Sagrada Familia Cathedral: Also known as the Holy Family Cathedral, it was designed by Antonio Gaudi. It is an amazing piece of architecture that remains unfinished even after 100 years.

Casa Milà (La Pedrera): This is another of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpieces. This uniquely designed apartment building is famous for its ‘wavy’ walls.

Park Güell: Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of El Carmel in Barcelona.
