Architecture in Barcelona




The first time I drove around the city of Barcelona, I was fascinated with the architecture in the city. While Gaudi’s influence is not always visible in modern architecture, the colors and the styles are prominent and spectacular. The risk has been taken in designing the city and in using bright colors.

Natural shapes inspired Gaudi that can be seen at Sagrada Familia basilica that has different architectural style on its four sides.



But other architects have also been brave in designing the building which are now the tourist delight.


It was amazing to see that building at corners had flat edges, thus making the street corners big enough to have terraces for communal and sociable atmosphere.


Traditional Catalan Gothic style is seen in many of the old buildings that are a feast to the eyes.


One can spend hours touring round the city, in the comfort of the car, just admiring the beauty of the architecture everywhere.
