La Sagrada Familia, one of the world’s most famous churches, designed by the renowned architect Antoni Gaudi, stands proud in Barcelona. Although it is a central and highly important church in the Catholic world, La Sagrada Familia acts as a center of spirituality in which harmony, peace, and love can be shared by every individual regardless of their beliefs. Each one of the 18 turrets and the four spectacular façades has a symbolic value behind its stunning beauty. Furthermore, visitors can see Gaudi’s crypt and may climb one of the towers and see Barcelona from high above.
The old town
& city centre
Many narrow and winding alleys shape the district's urban image today. The cathedral La Seu forms the centre of the district. Many sunny squares with buildings full of history gather around the cathedral. The district was renovated from the ground up several times, most recently for the Olympic Games in 1992. The old structure is preserved effortful and lovingly even today.
