Passeig de Gracia
This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonans and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange, as well as a myriad of over 100 year old grand buildings:
- Gaudi monuments: La Pedrera & Casa Batllo. Both facades are outstanding, with the wavy shapes in la Pedrera and the colorful dragonskin of Casa Batllo.
- Block of discord. Gaudi was not the only modernista architect, and in passeig de Gracia you will be able to see the main architects showing their best: Domenech i Montaner with Casa Lleo Morera and Puig i Cadafalch with Casa Amatller.
The jewel in the crown of Gaudi’s works, still being built, 2026.
- Each facade explains a chapter of Jesus’ life. You will walk in through the Birth Facade - look closely, the whole nativity is represented there. At the other side of the basilica is the Passion Facade, representing the stages before Jesus died.
- The basilica. There are no words to describe the first time you enter the Sagrada Familia. The curved columns resembling trees, the light that dances and plays across the hall in a constant change of colors. Just wait and see!
