If you have ever scrolled through photographs of Barcelona on Instagram or Pinterest you will be aware of the huge impact that the famous architect Antoni Gaudi had on the city.
I decided to spend a couple of days during my week in Barcelona visiting as many of his works as possible in order to bring you this post: a comprehensive Gaudi Photo Album.
Often deemed controversial and not fully appreciated during his life time Antoni Gaudi’s works are now widely studied by architecture students and several have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
These include Park Güell, Palau Güell, Casa Milà, Casa Vicens, Sagrada Família, Casa Batlló and Colònia Güell.

I particularly enjoyed exploring Barcelona in order to see these sites and compile this Gaudi Photo Album. Many of these sites are hugely popular with tourists so depending on when you visit you may struggle to avoid the crowds, also if you want to enter some of these sites you may want to look into whether tickets need to be booked in advance, you’ll also need to be prepared to wait in line.
Have you visited Barcelona?
How many Gaudi sites have you visited?
