If you will stay in Barcelona for a weekend you will need some helpful ideas on how to spend your time. Here is the list of things that you can see in 3 days if you follow our route.
Barcelona most certainly offers anything and everything you can imagine, even the possibility to see almost all regions of Spain all together in one town – Poble Espanyol (Catalan for Spanish Town).
The peaceful and unique village full of Spanish soul is definitely worth a visit if you want to spend the day exploring and getting to know the different autonomous communities and regions of Spain.
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.
The former Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (English: Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul) is located in El Guinardó, a neighborhood in Barcelona. It is a complex design built between 1901 and 1930, designed by the Catalan modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Together with Palau de la Música Catalana, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
