There’s the top tourist favourite Sagrada de Familia at Calle Mallorca where a giant temple was first constructed in 1882 by Antonio Gaudi. Though Gaudi has long been dead, the Sagrada de Famila has been rebuilt and improved up to this day. In fact, some say that final completion can only happen given 30 to 50 more years. The Sagrada is more than just a huge Cathedral but a whole complex. See the Segrada’s smaller chapels and churches and gardens. This edifice looks so impressive because there are more than a hundred murals and bas relief of saints and the Holy Family on the thick old walls. It also is shaped like a tower or a huge minaret. This is extraordinary since its top seems typical of Arabic architecture. See the glowing stained glass windows which seem to improve the sacred ambience of the place. The Sagrada de Familia has more than two million tourists visiting it every year making it one of Spain’s top tourist site.

It is much bigger than the one in Cannes near Nice Airport near to the taxi rank.
