From the numerous Antoni Gaudí buildings around the city to sandy Mediterranean beaches, travelers and photographers in Barcelona will have practically endless options for things to do. To plan ahead for this special vacation, here are some of Barcelona’s most popular attractions. 

Gothic Quarter
The historic Gothic Quarter of Barcelona has interesting discoveries around every corner. It’s a neighborhood full of both ancient Roman buildings as well as the namesake Gothic-style architecture that defines the area. It’s a must-visit destination in Barcelona, whether you’re touring the city alone during a beak or traveling together with friends and family. Walk through the maze-like streets and discover local shops and charming restaurants along the way where you can enjoy a traditional meal or pick up some fun souvenirs. Some of the top sites in the Gothic Quarter include the Placa del Rei and numerous museums including the popular Picasso Museum. 

Basilica de la Sagrada Familia 
One of Antoni Gaudí’s most famous creations, the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia is one of the most noticeable landmarks of Barcelona. Towering above the surrounding city buildings, the majestic spires and fairy-tale style architecture are absolutely breathtaking. Inside and out the church is stunning, and a prefect place for photographs in Barcelona. On the outside you can admire the façade which shows the birth of Jesus, while inside ornate stained-glass windows give the church a mystical lighting. 

La Rambla 
Dividing the old town area of Barcelona is the main avenue known as La Rambla. It’s the cultural and social heart of Barcelona, with the best cafés and shopping centers in the city. Street performances are common, so as you’re exploring the area you might get lucky and be treated to a musical serenade or a juggling act. In the evening locals as well as tourists come to La Rambl to enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants or just for a stroll to soak up the atmosphere. 

Gaudí’s Surrealist Park
One of Barcelona’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Gaudí’s Surrealist Park is definitley one of the highlights of the city. Full of buildings and monuments in Gaudí’s unique surrealist style, the park is colorful, fun, and exciting to visit. Take your time to go through the gardens and tour the Casa Museu Gaudí, which is where Antoni Gaudí himself used to live and work. The multicolored ceramic pieces and various decorative objects make for some perfect photographs of Barcelona. 

A trip to a place as beautiful and singular as Barcelona might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Regardless of what brings you traveling, whether it’s a solo vacation or an important event like a wedding or anniversary, having a local photographer from Localgrapher can help ensure that the best parts of your trip are forever preserved in pictures. You’ll be able to look back fondly at all the amazing things you got to experience in Barcelona, from the fantastic historic buildings to the sunny and stunning Mediterranean coast.
