Situated squarely on the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona enjoys mild weather throughout most of the year. If you are particularly sensitive to heat and humidity, you may wish to avoid July and August. Most locals agree that Barcelona’s best weather for a Gaudí daytrip occurs in the months of May, June, September, and October. It very rarely snows during the winter. You’ll find rather sunny days and cool, crisp evenings from November to March. Like most Mediterranean locales, spontaneous rainstorms can occur without notice throughout the year. Bring an umbrella just in case!
Gaudí’s works are spread pretty evenly throughout Barcelona, making a self-guided Gaudí tour a difficult and time-consuming task. You might find that a professional Gaudí Tour will save you a small chunk of change on transportation as well as a great deal of time. Several different vendors offer Gaudí tours in Barcelona and most of the meeting points are conveniently located near train and metro stops in the most popular tourist areas. Barcelona’s metro runs rather efficiently and you should have no difficulty reaching the meeting point for whichever Gaudí Tour you wish to take.
To make the most of your visit to the Sagrada Familia, it is recommended to go early in the morning or in the late afternoon, as these times usually have fewer crowds and better lighting for taking photos.
Casa Mila is located in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Spain.
Gaudí is a popular tourist attraction in Barcelona with a unique architectural style, colorful mosaics and whimsical elements. Antoni Gaudí, the Spanish architect is the brainchild behind this highly decorative architectural style. His notable works include the popular the famous Sagrada Familia church, Park Guell, Casa Batllo, and Casa Mila. Gaudí drew inspiration from the natural world and Moorish architecture that can be seen incorporated in his designs. Moreover, his creations are not simply visually stunning but also useful for the intended use.
Short on cash? Don’t worry! One Gaudí attraction that remains cost-free is the Parc Güell! And, although the Monumental Zone inside Parc Güell does charge and admission fee, you can visit it for free at certain times of the day. Free entry usually occurs just before opening hours and in the evenings. Do a little research based on the season and save yourself some dough!
