Architectural monuments of Spain:
Mentioning Spanish architecture is difficult not to note the genius of architecture - Antonio Gaudi. Most of his works were erected in Barcelona, as he did not identify himself as Spanish, but as a Catalan architect.
One of the most famous and unfinished works of Gaudi is the Sagrada Familia (Temple of the Holy Family). In combination is protracted. The temple was conceived as a symbol of the unity of nature and man.
Also, one of the most visited tourist places in Barcelona is Plaza Catalunya. The square is replete with fashionable shops, shopping centers and colorful fountains.
Barcelona is also famous for a very beautiful nightlife. For lovers of night walks, a light and musical performance by the Montjuic fountain is sure to impress. This is a very bright and memorable place.
Another creation by Antonio Gaudi is the house “La Pedrera”, although the author conceived it as “Casa Mila”. Local residents did not recognize modernism as a genre, which is why the second name appeared. The house is unique both externally and internally.
One of the most famous and recognizable artists of the last century was the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. The museum in his honor occupies 5 separate buildings and contains over 3000 of his works.
And for lovers of antiquity, and in particular the Middle Ages, a walk through the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona will seem like a fairy tale. The oldest of the buildings was erected in 1298th. Also in the Quarter are traces of Roman influence. Only a few aqueducts have survived.
You can take a look at the whole of Barcelona from Mount Tibidabo, where the highest observation point in the city is located. From there, just a beautiful view of the capital of Catalonia.
Burgos Cathedral is a living example of such a connection. It is richly decorated with gold and stained glass.
