barcelona, spain 48 trinità dei monti — rome, italy architectural highlights One of Europe’s most visually stunning cities, Barcelona balances the medieval intimacy of its Gothic Quarter with the grace and distinction of the wide Modernisme boulevards. From the city’s oldest path, Via Laietana, to the world-famous boulevard of Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona is an architectural masterpiece that simply cannot be appreciated in just one visit. Native son and Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí left his mark throughout Barcelona with unrivaled passion and imagination contributing greatly to the city’s individuality. His Sagrada Família with its spindle-shaped towers has become an icon of the city. Park Güell and Casa Milà are the most profound statements of Modernisme. And the famous Casa Batlló, whose façade is made of sandstone, is replete with unique features like colorful Catalan mosaics, irregularly sculpted oval windows and bone-shaped pillars on the balconies.
