Giving you free access to Barcelona's most exclusive party guest lists in not enough for us. We want you to make the most of your daytime too. This is why we cherry-picked a list of the city's main attractions for you.
We consider that three-four days is a perfect timeframe to see and visit the principal attractions of Catalonia's capital. Nevertheless, a lot of people have more or less time than that to enjoy the city, so we suggest you 5 “must see” in Barcelona!
Park Güell is one of Barcelona's top attractions. It is a public park built between 1900 and 1914 by the Catalan architect Antoní Gaudí. The original idea was to build a private and exclusive residential garden village with 60 houses, but it didn’t work out and it was donated to Barcelona by the artist.
Getting to Park Güell is a bit complicated, because the closest Metro Stations -Vallcarca and Leeseps- are about one kilometer far from the park's entrance. To get there, we recommend taking a taxi -they are very cheap in Spain- or hop in the bus 24 or 92.
Open: All days of the year from 10 AM Price: 8€ (7€ if you book in advance)* *To ensure the preservation of the park there is be a limit of 800 visitors per hour, so it's a very good idea to buy Park Güell tickets in advance.
La Sagrada Familia
Built by Antoní Gaudí, La Sagrada is the most famous and most visited touristic attraction of Barcelona. It is free to see from outside but you have to pay and queue for a long time to go inside. Although still under construction, this amazing church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You could get easily going down on Sagrada Familia Metro Station (Violet and Blue Line)
Open: Usually all year round, but sometimes is closed for religious events. Price: 15€ Basilica | 19.50 € Basilica and Towers* *Buying tickets in avance will allow you to beat the queues!

Modernism was a Catalan movement which originated in Barcelona and Catalonia. It is most famous for its architectural expression, especially the many works of Antoni Gaudí. There are a handful of modernist buildings in Barcelona that are outstanding.
We recommend to have a look at Casa Batló, Casa Amatller y Casa Mila!
This old military fortress dates back from 1640 and was built on top of Montjuïc hill. The fort was destroyed in 1751 and then the current structure was created. This castle has been used as torture and detention center repeatedly for centuries.
From up there, you will get the chance to enjoy one of the best views of Barcelona!
You can access the castle with the Montjuïc cable car, a gondola lift that has its upper station near the castle entrance and connects, via the Montjuïc funicular, to the Metro at Parallel station.
Great light, music and water show. This typical Barcelona attraction is unmissable.
Open: From Thursdays to Saturdays during the Summer. Price: Free access! The fountain is located near the Espanya metro station.
