Time Out says

The construction of Barcelona’s Gothic cathedral began in 1298. However, thanks to civil wars and plagues, building dragged on at a pace that makes the Sagrada Família project look snappy: although the architects remained faithful to the vertical Nordic lines of the 15th-century plans, the façade and central spire were not finished until 1913. Indeed, the façade continued to cause problems into the 2000s, and although it was one of the newest parts of the building, it was crumbling, and roughly a third of it was taken down and painstakingly rebuilt with the same Montserrat stone that was used for the original.

Inside, the cathedral is a cavernous and slightly forbidding place, but many paintings, sculptures and an intricately carved central choir (built in the 1390s) all shine through the gloom. The cathedral is dedicated to the city’s patron saint Eulàlia, an outspoken 13-year-old martyred by the Romans in AD 303; her remains lie in the dramatically lit crypt, in an alabaster tomb carved with torture scenes from her martyrdom (being rolled in a nail-filled barrel down what is today the nearby street Baixada de Santa Eulàlia, for instance). To one side, there’s a lift to the roof; for a few euros you can take it for a magnificent view of the Old City.

The glorious, light-filled cloister is famous for its 13 fierce geese – one for each year of Eulàlia’s life – and half-erased floor engravings, detailing which guild paid for which side chapel: scissors to represent the tailors, shoes for the cobblers and so on. The cathedral museum, housed in the 17th-century chapterhouse, includes paintings and sculptures by Gothic masters Jaume Huguet, Bernat Martorell and Bartolomé Bermejo.

The timetable is intended to keep tourists and worshippers from bothering one another. Entry is free, except from approximately 1pm-5pm, when you’ll pay an obligatory donation; however, ticket-holders have the run of the cloister, church, choir and lift, and can enter some chapels and take photos (normally prohibited).

Our selection of the top 10 tourist attractions in Barcelona.

Where possible, we have provided yearly statistics on visits to selected attractions by tourists, however, some places are open spaces, and it is simply impossible to count there.

No. 1 Sagrada Família by Antonio Gaudí (giant basilica)

Attraction No. 1 – La Sagrada Família by Antonio Gaudí

A huge basilica built by the great architect Antonio Gaudí. The building has been under construction since 1882 and will take another 30 to 80 years (depending on funding and available resources) before it is completed. Imagine the amount of commitment, dedication and dedication it took to build the temple over so many years.

Some like the Sagrada Família and some hate it, but whatever your reaction, I guarantee it will be.

When I saw this temple for the first time, I was a little shocked. It was completely unlike anything I had seen before, I had nothing to compare it to. However, with each visit to the temple, I gradually began to fall in love with him. Its uniqueness, boldness of embodiment and dimensions are simply breathtaking. The temple is under construction, so with every visit there, you will find something new for yourself. You will also be able to witness the creation of this masterpiece with your own eyes, as construction work is still underway there.

I have been to many different countries and seen many amazing structures, but the Sagrada Família is my number one spot.

10. Plaça Reial

Plaça Reial is a picturesque square located next to La Rambla. This is a quiet and peaceful area where it is nice to have a coffee or a snack while enjoying the surrounding atmosphere. There is a beautiful fountain in the center of the square, as well as some good restaurants and bars. There are also two large and unusual lampposts that were created by Gaudí. They represent one of his first commissioned works. At the bottom of each lamppost there is a sign with a description.
