Antoni Gaudí

Sagrada Familia
Sagrada Familia is the most famous - and most visited - monument in Barcelona. Antoni Gaudí worked more than 40 years on the church before he died in 1926. Now, 100 years later, the church will be finished in 2026 to conmemorate the famous architect.
Casa Batlló
Casa Batlló (1904-1906) is one of Antoni Gaudís most important works. As the name indicated, the architect designed the house for the Batlló family and created one of the most spectacular houses in Europe. Here there are no straight lines and the ondulating forms are inspired by nature
