    La Sagrada Família

    Carrer de Mallorca 401, Barcelona 08013, Spain
    429 reviews

    La Sagrada Familia is one of the most amazing and complex architectural structures designed by Gaudi! Every column, corner, wall, angle, nook, and inch, has some element of shape and symbolism that influenced him since childhood. It has been in construction for over 120+ years, and is to be estimated to complete in 2026, the centennial of Gaudí's death. It's ...

    Park Güell

    D'Olot, s/n, Barcelona, CT 08024 Spain
    278 reviews

    One of the many contributions to the city of Barcelona by Antoni Gaudi is Parc Guell. It's a gorgeous park with beautiful architectural structures that redefine your thoughts on buildings. There are colorful tiles, columns, wavy benches, and a tunnel that defies your imagination. Maybe yours, but not Gaudi. He was truly a master of his craft. I'm happy to ...

    The Prado Museum

    Calle Ruiz de Alarcón 23, Madrid 28014 Spain
    109 reviews

    Gosh, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Well, the Prado opened in 1819 with the sole aim of proving to the rest of Europe that Spanish art was of equal merit to any other national school. It houses the works of Valazquez, Goya, El Greco, and Picasso, but also includes other European artists like Titian, Bosch, Rubens, ...

    Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía

    Calle de Santa Isabel, 52, Madrid, Spain
    63 reviews

    Following up on our day at the Prado and the Thyssen museums, we headed to Reina Sofia to see La Guernica by Pablo Picasso. Ever since hearing about it and studying it in high school I've always wanted to see it in person. I never thought I would. Fast forward many years later and a plane flight to Spain, there ...

    Casa Batlló

    Passeig de Gràcia 43, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
    102 reviews

    This is probably my favorite of all the Gaudí buildings in Barcelona. It's just so imaginative and defies conventional architecture. It's really cool to see in person. Refurbished by Gaudí between 1904 and 1906, this is one of the emblematic structures of his work. It was commissioned and owned by the Batlló family until the 1950s, where it was passed ...

    Casa Milà

    Passeig de Gràcia 92, Barcelona, CT 08008 Spain
    129 reviews

    Another Gaudi masterpiece. This apartment, museum, and shop building has amazing design, especially the rooftop and the attic. Try to come early to avoid crowd and then you can take better pictures from the rooftop.

    Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

    Paseo Prado, 8, Madrid, Spain
    30 reviews

    I live in Madrid since a couple of years and have visited all three museums of the Golden Triangle of Art (a couple of times) and love all three of them but the Thyssen-Bornemisza is my personal favorite because it has a bit of all art styles and is in chronological order. And it has the most impressionism paintings of ...

    Barcelona Picasso Museum

    Carrer de Montcada 15-23, Barcelona, CT 08003 Spain
    83 reviews

    If you're a lover of the arts, then the Museu Picasso is a must while visiting Barcelona. If you happen to have a Barcelona card, then you'll get a discount, which I'll also recommend you getting the audio guide. The Picasso museum is the only museum of its kind where the artist was still alive while in its conception. Pablo ...

    Barri Gòtic

    Catalan, Barcelona, CT 08002 Spain
    104 reviews

    This district of Barcelona is central and atmospheric and has a number of streets which don't feel too touristy. You'll find sightseeing gems like the Picasso Museum, but also loads of cafes and restaurants, making it a great neighborhood to stroll through, people watch, and stop off for sustenance.

    Palacio Real

    Calle de Bailen, Madrid 28013 Spain
    109 reviews

    Massive royal palace. I think it is the largest palace in Western Europe, which is pretty amazing considering the size of Versailles and some of the other palaces in Europe. The palace is the official residence of the Spanish monarchy, although now they mostly live in Palacio de la Zarzuela, which means you can visit the palace and see all ...

    Plaza Mayor

    Southwest of the Puerta del Sol, Madrid 28013 Spain
    128 reviews

    Plaza Mayor was, to me, the most impressive square in Madrid. The plaza is essentially the courtyard of a red palace where several different streets come together. From the center point you can look through the archways and see down each street for quite a ways.

    Palacio de Cristal

    Paseo Chopera, 10, Madrid, Spain
    28 reviews

    One of my personal favorite places in Madrid. One of the most beautiful ones. I highly recommend it for people that want to take a peaceful walk in the Retiro Park while staying in the very lively Madrid. It is hidden; you need to search it on a map or maybe ask for directions. I love the beautiful water trees ...

    Calle de Real de Alhambra, Granada, AN 18009 Spain
    68 reviews

    Absolutely stunning and yes, we did stay for almost 4 full hours. We went in the off-season which had its advantages (less people and we could walk up and buy tickets at the gate) but also disadvantages(gardens were pretty empty). We also missed out on the seasonal night tours which I'm guessing would be amazing. The palaces are the highlight ...

    Originally a royal park, that is now open to everyone to enjoy. It is a wonderful place to go for a walk. Make sure to check out the Palacio de Cristal, Casita del Pescador, and the roselada rose garden

    Los Reales Alcázares

    Plaza del Triunfo, Seville, AN 41004 Spain
    20 reviews

    One of the oldest royal residences in Spain. The Alcazares are 2 palaces that are next to each other. One is in the mudejar style, and has beautiful stucco decorations, and amazing wood ceilings. The second palace is in the gothic style, and has some very beautiful tile-work. The gothic palace also has access to gardens, which are nice, and ...

Great permanent exhibitions of major contemporary names as Jeff koons, Richard Serra, Anish Kapoor, etc. temporary exhibition of Brasilian Ernesto Neto was interesting, interactive, appealing to sounds, smells and touch. Too many people, as one could expect, buy tickets in advance ...

    Puerta del Sol

    Puerta del Sol, 28013 Madrid, Spain
    100 reviews

    Similar to NYC's Time Square, Puerta del Sol is the central hub for crowds of people to meet up and walk down connecting side streets and alleys to shop, dine, or dance. Regardless of the time of day, there is always some type of activity occurring whether it be public shows or people just relaxing around the fountains.

    Font Magica de Montjuïc

    Font Magica de Montjuïc, Av Maria Cristina, 08004 Barcelona, Spain
    87 reviews

    Absolutely loved it! Totally worth seeing. It is only on Friday and Saturday nights from around 7 to 9PM I think. The do about a 20 minute or so show with music and lights, supposedly it repeats the show several times over a few hours starting at 7PM. The show is at the fountain in front of the Catalan Art ...

    Seville Cathedral

    Avenida de la Constitución, Seville, AN 41004 Spain
    33 reviews

    The cathedral is the largest Gothic Church in Europe, and when you step in you will definitely feel it. The ceilings are amazingly high, and make the church seem even bigger when you are inside. Check out the altar, which is very impressive, and unsurprisingly massive. The cathedral also is the resting place of Christopher Colombus
