Not all cities can offer that Barcelona has. One of the hottest destinations in Europe, with its unique architecture which can be seen throughout the city, with lots to do and a fantastic climate is the perfect destination for your summer vacation. If this summer you will spend your holidays here in Barcelona I want to point out 5 monuments not to be missed:

Sagrada Familia
Barcelona has so much to offer a tourist. Attractions that are not to be missed are Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona’s most famous land mark that after 100 years and counting is still in construction. From the outside, looking up you will be amazed at the extent of art and building work that has gone into this wonderful Cathedral.

If you are feeling energetic go climb up the Montjuiic. With great views from the top, it is a bit of a hike but the views are worth it. See the scattered buildings from the 1992 Olympic games including the fabulous Santiago Calatrava.
