  • We just loved it here. Would visit over Park Güell any day. Some beautiful architecture, interesting facts about how it came to be. Definitely worth a visit!

  • Definitely a must see while in Barcelona. Former hospital build around 1910 turned into a cultural and historical place / museum. Each building is unique and the architectural details are astonishing. Hard to describe, you simply have to look at the photos!
  • This is one of my most favorite places to visit in Barcelona. It is less known but well worth the tour. The art and philosophie behind the architecture and design is spectacular. I look forward to returning on my next visit and spending more time.
