OLYMPIC STADIUM LLUÍS COMPANYS, PALAU SANT JORDI AND OLYMPIC RING

In 1992 Barcelona captivated the world and the city had to know how to adapt to what it meant to organize an Olympic Games. Taking advantage of the space offered by the mountain of Montjuïc, this Olympic Ring of more than 400 hectares was built, which includes the Calatrava Tower, the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium and the Palau Sant Jordi.

In addition to hosting sporting events, both the Olympic Stadium and the Palau Sant Jordi have become the stage chosen by the great national and international stars touring the city.

TOWARD THE CENTER OF THE CITY

PLAZA ESPAÑA

We could not miss the beautiful Plaza de España, where the Venetian Towers, the Fountains of Montjuïc, the National Art Museum of Catalonia and the Las Arenas Shopping Center (the old bullring) can be found.

Built for the International Exhibition of 1929, the Plaza de España (Plaça d’Espanya) in Barcelona is one of the most extensive and significant of the Catalan capital.

The square is located at the foot of Montjuïc Mountain and has 34,000 square meters that make it one of the largest squares in Spain.

VENETIAN TOWERS

The Towers of access to the premises of the Exposition of 1929, more known as Venetian towers, are two twin towers, of ornamental character, located in the intersection of the avenue of the Queen Maria Cristina with the square of Spain of Barcelona.

Its popular name is due to its similarity with the campanile of San Marcos de Venecia.

Work of Ramon Reventós, were built as access to the premises of the International Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929; currently, they do the same with the Montjuïc site of Fira Barcelona.

They are registered as a Cultural Asset of Local Interest (BCIL) in the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia.

naTIONAL MUSEUM OF art OF catalunya, Mnac

Located in the imposing National Palace of Montjuic, the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC) is one of the most important museums in Barcelona and throughout Spain.

Was created for the International Exhibition of 1929. The surprising palace of classicist style inspired by the Renaissance has an area of ​​32,000 square meters and has a beautiful decoration based on wall paintings and beautiful architectural elements.

Among the most interesting areas of the building are the Oval Room, the Throne Room and the impressive main dome. The museum opens to the public two terraces-viewpoint on the roofs of the Palau Nacional that allow you to discover a previously unprecedented panoramic view of the city.

The view allows you to enjoy a 360 degree view of the city and the main buildings and monuments that make up the Barcelona skyline: from the Sagrada Familia in the Torre Agbar and the buildings of the Olympic Village, to the equipment that makes up the Olympic Ring.

LAS ARENAS SHOPPING CENTER, THE OLD PLAZA DE TOROS

The old bullring of Plaza de Espanya, Las Arenas, is currently one of the most important and visited shopping centers in the city by both locals and tourists alike.

The history of the building when it was used as a bullring dates back to the year 1900, when it was built by the architect August Font i Carreras in a traditional Neomudéjar style that made it one of the most important arenas in Spain.

In 1977 the place celebrated its last race. After this last appointment, the square fell into disuse until, in 2007, the decision was taken to transform it into a shopping center. Interestingly, the architects Richard Rogers and Alfonso Balaguer decided to maintain the old facade, and added a dome-shaped roof that can be climbed and from which one can enjoy one of the best views of Barcelona.

The commercial center has shops, movie theaters, restaurants and all kinds of services that, in combination with the beauty that still retains the place, have made it a very popular spot.

monTjuïc FOUNTAIN

The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, besides being one of the most characteristic elements of Barcelona, ​​is one of the many attractions offered by the city.

Designed by the Catalan architect Carles Buïgas, and like so many monuments and emblematic buildings of the city, the fountain was built on the occasion of the International Exposition of 1929.

Also called simply Fuente de Montjuïc, in Catalan Font de Montjuïc, music was added to the light show in the 80s, which makes it even more impressive, with many tourists coming to visit it, especially when the light and music shows take place in which the water flows to the sound of the music, being varied in each show, while the lights that accompany the moment change color.

PLAZA CATALUNYA

With an area of ​​30,000 square meters, the Plaza de Cataluña is one of the largest squares in Spain and one of the most important places in Barcelona. The square is the junction between the old town and the Ensanche.

The always lively Plaza de Cataluña is the starting point of the main arteries of the city, such as Las Ramblas, Paseo de Gracia, Rambla de Cataluña, Portal del Ángel Avenue, Pelayo Street or the University rounds and of Sant Pere.

The Plaza de Cataluña is a lively place for any day of the day, for what makes the ideal destination for outdoor shopping while contemplating the coming and going of passers-by.

The terrace of the Corte Inglés café is ideal to contemplate the Plaza de Cataluña from the heights.

WALKING TOUR GOTHIC QUARTER

FROM GOTHIC QUARTER TO LA RAMBLA

Located in the district of Ciutat Vella, in the heart of the city, the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic) is the oldest and one of the most beautiful areas of Barcelona.

The pleasant neighborhood is bounded by Las Ramblas, Vía Laietana, Paseo de Colón and Plaza de Cataluña. We will make a short walking tour through the Gothic Quarter, passing through the Cathedral, Plaza Sant Jaume, among others, arriving at La Rambla where the Boquería Market or the Liceo is located.

THE SAGRADA FAMILIA, EXTERIOR

TEMPLE OF La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí

The Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, in Catalan “Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família”, known simply as the Sagrada Familia, is a Catholic basilica in Barcelona, ​​designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí. Started in 1882, it is still under construction.

It is the masterpiece of Gaudí, and the greatest exponent of Catalan modernist architecture.

Here we will visit its exterior to see its different facades, all incredible and very different between them.

We will not access the interior (but we recommend doing it at another time!).

PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA

casa batlló AND la pedrera, EXTERIOR

The Casa Batlló, built between 1904 and 1906 under the order of Josep Batlló, is Gaudí’s masterpiece, a key piece of modernist architecture in Barcelona that more than a building has become a myth of art.

La Pedrera, or Casa Milà (1906-1912) is a building built by the architect Antoni Gaudí commissioned by Pere Milà and Roser Segimon. The name of the building, “Casa Milà”, is due to this fact, it was the new residence of the Milà family.

It is the most emblematic civil building of Antoni Gaudí, as much for its constructive and functional innovations as for the ornamental and decorative solutions. It is a total work of art.
