Music lovers should definitely visit Palace of Music, the hall of which can accommodate up to 1700 guests. The building of the palace is of a great interest from an architectural point of view as well. The unique design of its rooms implemented in a modern style deserves only the highest praise. The palace is the venue for various concerts for over a hundred of years. Among other monuments worth mentioning is Batlló House (Casa Batllo), which facade is distinguished by the unusual decoration. The most striking religious monument of the city is a beautiful church named Sagrada Familia. This church is more famous under the name Cathedral of the 20th century. The construction of the cathedral started in 1883 and lasted until 1926 - the chief manager of the project, Antonio Gaudi, died on that year. After that the construction of the cathedral was suspended, and it was resumed not so many years ago.
The excursion to Historical Museum (Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat) will leave only positive memories. This museum is located in an old palace of the 15th century. In the museum you will see most unusual collections - kitchen utensils, historical artifacts, ancient paintings and portraits of famous people of Catalonia. Fans of ecotourism will definitely enjoy a walk in the foothills of Montseny. A beautiful National Park is located here, so you will find numerous hiking trails in the region. The city also has many interesting places for hiking. Guell Park is one of them. It is located on the territory of Chinatown, which had a bad reputation a hundred years ago. Today this is a wonderful park with unique statues, fountains and miniature buildings. The park is an important landmark of the international level and is included in the UNESCO list.
