Spaces of interest

Visit Barcelona's most interesting places with all the family. You'll enjoy them even more through your children's eyes. For instance, the art-nouveau, or modernista, buildings are a delight for the imagination: they are crammed with details and symbols that make each visit a true adventure. Gaudí's landmarks are a superb example: at La Pedrera, the kids will become researchers. At Park Güell you'll find dragons and mosaic forests. At the Casa Batlló, you'll meet Antoni Gaudí himself on a dramatised tour. At the Sagrada Família you'll discover all its hidden secrets. At the Palau Güell you'll be able to dress up as the Güell family and their servants. At the Casa Vicens you'll learn about different aspects of Gaudí. At the Colònia Güell you'll understand how people lived in the 19th century.

Gaudí's contemporaries also offer endless possibilities for you to enjoy yourself as a family, including a visit to a 1920s' ward at the Recinte Modernista de l'Hospital de Sant Pau and the magnificent sitting rooms at the Casa Amatller, both designed by Puig i Cadafalch. At Domènech i Montaner's Palau de la Música Catalana you will immerse yourself in a giant music box.

Here are some other ideas: visit Santa Maria del Mar , the cathedral of the sea with its stunning stained-glass windows that create a kaleidoscope of colour and find out how the Catalan upper-middle classes lived in the 19th century at the opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu.
