Barcelona is almost always one of the top choices for those who want to immerse themselves in Spanish culture. The warm weather here helps guarantee that your visit will be beautiful no matter what time of year you visit. Food and wine are part of the attraction of this city, which specializes in traditional Spanish cuisine as well as offering plenty of restaurants that feature the culinary styles of nearby countries. Much of the food here also has an African influence due to the close proximity.
Photographers and architecture enthusiasts will not be disappointed here. The city is filled with buildings that have unique architectural touches. There is a great deal of gothic influence in the buildings, but there are also
many modern and contemporary structures that are created almost as an art piece in addition to their function as a public building. Alongside these new structures are churches and mosques, some of which are centuries old that offer historical tours as well as religious significance.
One of the most well-known and visited cathedrals in Barcelona is La Sagrada. This massive gothic cathedral began construction in 1882 and is expected to be finished in the next few years. This should give you a clear idea as to the amount of detail and architectural design that has gone into this work. Many tourists love to compare different aspects of this building to see how the design of the work has changed since the building began construction and the designer, Gaudi passed away. You may purchase tickets to tour this facility, or simply admire it from afar. Regardless of your tourism style, you cannot miss this attraction when you visit Barcelona.
