Barcelona is the second largest city and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain. It is a beautiful city and it is most known for the rich history and culture, and unique architecture.

Here are some places that you must see if you ever go to Barcelona:

1. La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia is often called the church that is never finished, as the construction started over a century ago and it is still not finished. This is one of the most famous attractions in Barcelona and tickets might be sold out so make sure you buy them in advance.

2. Walk La Rambla

La Rambla is a long shopping street in the heart of Barcelona. It leads from the Plaça de Catalunya all the way to the harbor. This is a famous street where all the tourists go. On this traffic-free promenade, you can find shops, restaurants and lots of souvenirs.
