Lying in the northwestern part of the city and covering around 20 km2 of the total city’s area is January’s featured district – Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. It is one of the largest districts in Barcelona and even though quite near the center (considering the easy access to the public transport), it offers a calm getaway from all the hustle & bustle there.

Sagrada Familia facts

Every city has its’ landmark. For Paris it’s the Eiffel Tower, for Rome – The Coliseum, for Athens – the Parthenon… And of course the Sagrada Família in sunny Barcelona! Once the construction is finished, Sagrada Familia will be the tallest religious structure in Europe! Being so vast, it obviously does make an impact on Barcelona’s skyline, but that was not the only goal Gaudí had in mind for it. As a true Christian, he wanted to show appreciation of Christianity as well as pay respect for the work of God – nature.
