Antoni Gaudi’s influence

Thanks to the work of Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona is home to instantly recognisable architecture. His most notable creation is the iconic and still-under-construction basilica, La Sagrada Familia. This renowned symbol of the city should be at the top of your must-see list once you’ve booked your Barcelona flights.

Gaudi’s distinct style of architecture is easily identifiable throughout the city, with the likes of Casa Mila, Casa Battlo and Casa Vicens showcasing his vibrant and unique free-form modernista designs. For the ultimate display of Gaudi’s most imaginative work, head to Park Guell for a magical experience with views across the city.
