This area of the city is home to Gaudi’s most famous work in Barcelona: La Sagrada Familia. This immense Roman Catholic cathedral stands at 170 metres tall, and this amazing building has unbelievably been under construction since 1882! When you visit you can see the difference in contrast between the old and new stone on the building. The inside of the building is just as spectacular as the outside, however because it’s Barcelona’s number one tourist attraction queues to get in can be tiring and tedious. So make sure you bring plenty of water and sun cream.
El Clot is a brilliant area of Barcelona if you want to get away from the swarms of tourists, and feel like a Catalan local. It has an interesting history as the area dates back to the medieval period. There were once many textile factories and flour mills constructed here. El Clots’ relaxed atmosphere truly does provide an excellent location for holidaymakers wanting to have a peaceful stay in the city away from the hustle and bustle.
If you want to experience some traditional Catalonian food, then we recommend you try La Llesca. Only a short walk away from the Sagrada Familia this restaurant offers a wide range of delicious foods all reasonably priced. For a simple yet scrumptious lunchtime snack we suggest you give the Spanish omelette a go. Or you could try the succulent lamb shoulder with chorizo. You will not be disappointed!
We hope you enjoy your stay in Barcelona!
