For our Barcelona photoblog series, I went to one of the most famous tourist spots: The Sagrada Familia. Everybody who comes to Barcelona must go to the Sagrada Familia at least once. The 128-year-old building has been classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and features unusual architecture. It is in the district of Eixample which is one of the most visited spots in Barcelona. Indeed, people also come here for the Gaudi’s heritage too. It is quite expensive to visit this temple (10€ to 13€/person) but it’s worth it as the money is put towards the restoration of the building. You will also discover something really amazing, both inside and outside. Believe me, this is one of the things that you have to do at least once in your life ! Don’t forget to take pictures !
The interior of the Sagrada Familia will astonish you:
The ceiling is very different from all the other temples that you will visit in your life.
The stained-glass windows let you see the interior of the Sagrada Familia in a different way, through different colors.

Even the smallest things are amazing:

Don’t forget to go downstairs in the Sagrada Familia where you can learn about its history and discover the amazing architectural technique used by Gaudi.
The Sagrada Familia will blow your mind and make you think about Gaudi’s amazing work !
