The best way to see Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia is to take the elevator to the top of one of the towers for the view.
The capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona is a vibrant city that cruisers can easily explore. Though the city has many interesting neighborhoods that make it feel large and diverse, visitors can see many of Barcelona’s attractions on foot or via public transportation.

From the Port
The cruise terminal is conveniently located near one of Barcelona’s main attractions, La Rambla, the famous promenade that leads to the center of Old Barcelona. From there, explorers can continue on to the Gothic Quarter (or Barri Gotic), full of treasures such as 13th century architecture, the Museu Picasso, beautiful churches, historic sites, restaurants, and more.

Must-Visit Attractions
Barcelona is known for its architectural scene, particularly that of Antoni Gaudi. Be sure to visit the funky La Sagrada Familia, a church that has come to be a symbol of the city. Gaudi also designed the Palau Guell, a 19th-century palace; the Parc Guell; and La Pedrera.
