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 will immerse yourself in the mind of Antoni Gaudí thanks to 10D technology. 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 yourselves as a family. You'll be able to visit the magnificent sitting rooms at the Casa Amatller, which Puig i Cadafalch designed for a chocolate manufacturer, and sample some of their chocolate at the end of the tour! Domènech i Montaner's monumental buildings are also an adventure. At the Palau de la Música Catalana you'll be immersed in a giant music box and you'll be able to hunt for the drawings for an atomic bomb in its escape room Toccata i Fuga”. And at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, you'll be able to visit a 1920s hospital ward and ask a life-sized hologram of the architect questions.

Here are some other interesting things we recommend: visit Santa Maria del Mar, which is not just a church but the Cathedral of the Sea, with its stunning stained-glass windows that create a kaleidoscope of colour; ; explore the rooftops of Barcelona's majestic cathedral, which boasts breathtaking views, and visit the city’s opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, which will take you back in time to the splendour of the Catalan bourgeoisie of the 19th century.
