The first thing you should see if you’re traveling to Barcelona is the Expiatory Temple of La Sagrada Familia. This work made by Antoni Gaudí is more a piece of art than a building. Here converge all the artistic forms of the architect, it means the culmination of his style.

Gaudí had already shown his taste for vegetal and organic shapes in other works that can also be visited in Barcelona, such as the door of the Miralles estate, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and Park Güell.
