BARCELONA by night
Under construction since 1882, this is a symbol of Barcelona and a major work of the architect Antoni Gaudí. This expiatory temple is a must-see in Barcelona, with an anticipated completion date of 2026. Gaudí planned a church with 18 towers (12 symbolizing the Apostles, 4 for the Evangelists and one each for Mary and Jesus). They differ in height based on the rank of the individuals they each stand for. To date there are 8 towers finished at Holy Family, 4 at each facade. The facades do not connect, and each has a separate entrance. The tower tops can only be reached by elevator, one in each facade.
This monument to Christopher Columbus was christened in 1888 and immediately became an icon in the city of Barcelona. It was built in homage to the Discoverer and is located at Portal de la Pau Plaza, between Las Ramblas and the Port of Barcelona. An elevator in the tower takes you to the semi-circular area at the foot of the statue, where you’ll have a panoramic view of the city.
Catalonia Plaza is at the heart of Barcelona. It is the third largest plaza in Spain and joins the old town centre with the suburbs. From the plaza you can get reach major city streets such as La Rambla, el Paseo de Gracia, La Rambla de Cataluña and La Avenida de Portal del Ángel (the old docking port) famous for its shops and businesses.
Las Ramblas is a walkway located between Catalonia Plaza and the old port. A stroll down Las Ramblas will take you past several print shops, florists, bird and pet shops, you’ll see street performers, and discover cafes, restaurants and businesses. All these things make Las Ramblas a colorful area, rich in charming contrasts.
The Gothic Quarter is the oldest section of the city and one of the four neighbourhoods forming Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella District. There are two main routes through it: “Cardus” (nowadays Bisbe and Ciutat Streets) and “Decumanus”, (nowadays Llibretería and Call Streets). Sites such as the door at “Placa Nova” mark the ruins of the barrier wall from those times that runs throughout the neighbourhood. Here you’ll find the palaces of the Genaralitat and the Town Council.

The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc was christened on May 19, 1929, at the World’s Fair in Barcelona. The designer, Carles Buigas, submitted the plans a year before the fair, and many thought the project was too ambitious. More than 3,000 laborers worked on the project, which was finished in less than a year.
The Magic Fountain is a spectacular display of colour, light, movement, music and aquatic acrobatics. When you take all these elements and combine them properly you get pure magic! The Magic Fountain is a must-see show and highly recommended on trips to Barcelona.
