City center apartments Barcelona
Here is a glimpse of what you can see near our city center apartments in Barcelona.
Located at a ten minute walk from the apartments, the Sagrada Família, is the most famous and emblematic building of Barcelona, and a must-see in the city. This masterpiece created by genius architect Antoni Gaudí is very impressive from the outside, and with all these hidden small details, several days of observation are necessary to understand it fully. As it is not finished yet, it is interesting to see the evolution of the construction year after year.
Not only the outside is impressive, but the inside is breathtaking too. The colorful stained-glass windows filter the sunlight, bringing a gorgeous luminosity and a dreamlike atmosphere.

Casa Milà and Casa Batlló
If you are fond of Gaudi’s architecture, both his Casa Milà and Casa Batlló are only ten minutes away from our city center apartments Barcelona.
Casa Batlló has, as many creations by Gaudí, an unusual architecture: it is not only a house, it is a story shaped like a house. A dragon on the roof, the ribcage of an animal, bones on the facade, a staircase underwater… It all seems to come from a medieval adventure novel.
Casa Milà is also known as La Pedrera due to its resemblance with a quarry, pedrera meaning quarry in Spanish. The terrace roof is particularly striking with its sculptures, stairs and chimneys with unusual shapes.

Parc de la Ciutadella
If you are seeking a beautiful and peaceful place to read, walk, or find inspiration, you can get to Citadel Park in a 20 minute walk. There, you can admire different pieces of art such as fountains, waterfalls, sculptures, and the Catalan Parliament. Covering 44 acres, the park, even though it is renowned, will enable you find an isolated place to rest and enjoy its vegetation and architecture.
Arc de Triomf
Located in Passeig Lluís Companys, Barcelona’s triumphal arch is a bit different from usual ones. Indeed, most triumphal arches were built to celebrate a victory or in memory of people killed during a war, whereas Barcelona’s one was built as the main entrance of 1888 Barcelona Universal Exhibition, taking part in the Citadel Park.
