Columbus Monument: between La Rambla and the sea beside the medieval Drassanes, which houses the Maritime Museum, the Columbus column was built to commemorate Columbus’ return from America.

Passeig de Gracia: this beautiful central boulevard is known for its luxury and design shops and famous international brands. Among several Modernist buildings we find two houses by Gaudí: Casa Batlló and Casa Milà or “La Pedrera”.
The Sagrada Familia: unfinished temple of the genius architect Antoni Gaudí, who dedicated the latter part of his life to this work, synthesis of his overall conception of architecture.
