Barcelona are one of the biggest clubs in the world, making them an attractive proposition when it comes to their games being broadcast on television or online streaming services. Their squad regularly features some of the best players in the world, a factor that explains why they are one of the most-watched teams on television and online streams. Even despite being unfinished the church was consecrated as a minor basilica in 2010, and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site even before that. MUHBA also oversees several heritage sites around the old city so you’re likely to see the name keep popping up as you wander around the streets of Barcelona. Filled with quaint streets that are all arranged in a labyrinthine order, this is one Barcelona attraction that you should take your time in, exploring some of the lesser traveled streets and wandering in and out of its many small churches and coming across lots of squares. Journey underground to see the archaeological remains of the ancient Roman city and see exhibits about daily life as well as remains of a factory, shops and streets. Other great monuments of the 20th century include the Palace of Catalan Music, a fine example of Catalan modernist style, built by the architect Luis Domenech i Montaner, and the Agbar Tower, a modern 38-story skyscraper (though four of its floors are underground).
It was built between 1902 and 1961 in the Neo-Gothic style and has a beautiful interior that you should definitely see while up here. There are of course shops here, as well as a smattering of bars and restaurants that provide a place to stop and get refreshed as you walk around. And if you’re really keen to find out more about this old part of the city, hire a guide to take you around or be sure to see the major landmarks including Barcelona Cathedral. You’ll get to see parts of the stadium that you wouldn’t usually, including the TV boxes and trophy rooms, and there’s a museum to check out as well. Many of the buildings date back to Medieval times and there are even some remains from Roman times including parts of the old Roman wall. It’s a huge Roman Catholic church that’s a testament to its architect, Antoni Gaudi. We chose to feature this one as the museum provides a great way to discover more about this ancient city and to see, first hand, what Barcelona looked like in Roman times. Once Barcelona had settled after the early goal, there was no way back for United as several changes in formation failed to produce a spark and Wayne Rooney was unable to exert any influence on events, first from the left flank and then from the centre.
First and foremost, Tibidabo is a mountain standing 512 meters (1680 ft) high and overlooking the city of Barcelona. Meaning “Citadel Park”, Parc de la Ciutadella was for many years the only green space in this bustling city and while today there are numerous other parks around the city, this one is often named the best. After the Sagrada Familia, La Casa Milà or “la Pedrera” as it is often called, is probably Gaudi’s second most popular building in the city. Often known by its acronym, MUHBA, Barcelona City History Museum is one of only two museums on our list of what to do in Barcelona.

The nice thing is that the Gothic Quarter is largely closed to vehicle traffic so you don’t have to worry about traffic noise or avoiding passing cars. Favorite Element: I (Stefania) love my Italian Moka; the terrace (especially in the morning where there are some birds passing by); the light that comes in the living room around 5pm; the Marset Lamp; the sofa (which is extremely comfortable and handmade by Andreu’s uncle); a big blue and white plate I bought in my hometown, Puglia; a wooden dresser my friend Montse renovated; and the white carpet in the living room. It’s funny to think that Barcelona’s best known landmark is a building that remains unfinished, despite the fact that they started constructing it way back in 1882. The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is by far the top thing to do in Barcelona. Known in Catalan as Barri Gotic, Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter features a myriad of historical buildings right in the heart of the old city. Locally the house is known as House of Bones because of its skeletal like appearance. The historic amusement park has been in operation since 1899 and still today it features many of its original rides.
