The historic yet unfinished church of La Sagrada Familia is an architectural masterpiece and not to be missed. Keen football fanatics must visit the FC Barcelona Museum and Camp Nou Stadium to get a behind the scenes look into the popular team. The Font Mágica fountain was built for the 1192 World Fair and continues to be a popular attraction with free water and light shows in summer from Thursday through to Sunday. Casa Milà also known as La Pedrera, is a modernist building featuring impressive designs and architecture. Discover the arches, beams and curves in this UNESCO recognised building in the cultural learning centre or sip a coffee in the café.

    The small mountainous country of Andorra is situated northwest of Barcelona. The capital of Andorra la Vella is a picturesque town full of medieval churches, bridges and buildings. Located on the Montserrat Mountain, 45 kilometres northwest of Barcelona is the monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat. This unique monastery built into the side of the mountain offers stunning views of Barcelona, whilst the statue of the Black Madonna draws pilgrims keen to learn of her miracle story. You can continue up past the monastery where there are hiking trails and parklands. Located on the Mediterranean coast, Tarragona, 100 kilometres from Barcelona, is home to Roman architecture with the spectacular Roman amphitheatre an unmissable attraction.
