La Rambla. A big pedestrian road where you can enjoy your walk. A part has flower shops, another one bird and pet shops, lots of street artists and animateurs.

La Sagrada Familia, also designed by Gaudi, has been building since 1882. Estimations indicate it will be finished in 2026. The church is enormous and you can't fit it in a pictures from so close.
