4. La Rambla
One of the most famous boulevards in the world is located in Barcelona. La Rambla starts from the central square of Plaza Catalunya and ends at the Columbus monument in the port of Vell, which is said not to point to America. La Rambla is full of street artists, souvenir stalls, tourists, and families with children. However, take care of the goods you have on you because the crowds facilitate the plans of pickpockets.
From La Rambla, you can also access La Boqueria, the famous square in Barcelona, where you will find a real feast of colors on the exposed stalls. Fresh fruits, local specialties, but especially fish and seafood, that’s why it’s worth the walk.

6. Casa Battlo
In the Eixample district of Barcelona, on Passeig de Gracia at number 47, there is a marvel of a house conceived by Gaudí as an allegory of Sant Jordi (Catalan Saint George) and the dragon – Sant Jordi being the spiritual patron of Catalonia. A surreal dream, in which the boundaries between architecture, sculpture and fantasy are blurred. Along with 7 other Gaudí buildings, Casa Batlló is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Casa Batlló was not built from scratch by Gaudí, but was only modified and renovated. Gaudí worked on it with another architect, Jujol – a successful combination of Gaudí’s structural inventiveness and fantasy and Jujol’s decorative refinement and elegance.
