Located in Barcelona, Spain, La Sagrada Familia has to be one of your first stops in the city. It’s usually very crowded on most days and tickets to the towers sell out in advance so make sure you add this to your itinerary. Still under construction since 1882, this basilica has plenty of details to admire from Gothic to Art Nouveau, designed by architect Gaudí—who only saw a small fraction of the construction. Since then, private donations have put this landmark on route to be be finished sometime between 2026 to 2028.

Insider Note: To capture amazing pictures of the colors of the interior windows, visit La Sagrada Familia during a sunny day around 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Also, make sure to buy your tickets online for the towers as well, which will save you plenty of time!

About The Author

Henrique Kerch

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
