Sagrada Familia of Gaudí

Is a Catholic basilica in Barcelona, considered the masterpiece of architect Antonio Gaudi and the greatest exponent of Catalan modernist architecture. Considered the most visited monument in Spain, ahead of the Museo del Prado and the Alhambra in Granada. Gaudí said that color is an expression of life and therefore wanted that were very present in the Sagrada Familia. We found it through fragments of Venetian glass and glazed ceramics of various colors, that can be found everywhere: in the pinnacles, towers and walls... and all with forms of episcopal attributes, fruit, ears of wheat and grapes... A wonder to sight!

Montserrat monastery

Located in the mountains, soon became sanctuary, a fact which led to an increase in donations and received alms. It had an steady growth due to both religious grounds and the influence in the territory. Early nineteenth century was especially tragic for Montserrat because it was burned 2 times by Napoleon's troops. It was looted and burned and many of their treasures were lost. The Monastery of Montserrat had to be restored. The assembly consists of two blocks of buildings with different functions: on the one hand with the monastic basilica and on the other hand, buildings designed to meet pilgrims and visitors. Be sure to visit this wonderful place!

Parc Güell

Designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí, it was commissioned by the businessman Eusebi Güell (Parc which is named). In the Parc Guell, he displayed his architectural genius and put into practice many of his innovative structural solutions that would be emblematic of his organismic style. It’s formed by layers of shale and limestone where the undulating forms are very present, like rivers of lava, columns covered with tree forms, stalactites and geometric walks.. Many of them covered with mosaic glass and ceramic, called "trencadís". Parc Guell becomes a place of peace that contrasts with the noise and frenzy of the city.
