Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The place does cost a bit, make sure you go to the official site to get them. You come at the time you have been allocated then a quick security check and you are in. We went on a Saturday morning, did not need to wait we were straight through then inside the main church. The inside is stunning and well presented. Lots not see and do. There are toilets and other amenities as needed. 30-45 mins is really all you need to see the main church. Amazing photos to take.

    Great to view the interior of this building as well as the outside. Had audio guide and also opted for the modern light show in the basement. An interesting visit with some very unique architecture.

    Just beautiful. We were lucky during our visit, there were a lot of street entertainers which added to the atmosphere. The cathedral is stunning!

    We did the self guided tour. Lovely mosaics and ceilings to see. They also put on concerts there. Lovely cafe with good reasonably priced three course meals. Not as famous as the Gaudi buildings, but worth a visit if you have time for a few extras.

    Great to see inside this unusual building. The roof is particularly quirky. We also did the vr experience which made a nice varied visit. Would thoroughly recommend going inside this building as well as admiring it from the street.

    The most beautiful stadium in the world. Unfortunately, the match I went to was not won by Barca, but I can't be sad because I went to the match of my favorite team. But the stadium remains the most beautifully designed stadium in the world in my opinion

    The Passeig de Gracia is a major avenue in Barcelona. You will find high-end shopping, unique architecture, cafes and several restaurants to dine at. Our hotel was only a block of Passeig de Gracia, and a 5-minute walk from the famous casas.

    You will see famous Gaudi's parabolic arches. Central Hall is very impressive. It is a good experience.

    We bought tickets and did not hire a guide. There is a free audio guide in multiple languages you can download to your phone. Unfortunately after the first few stops in excellent English, the guide defaulted to Spanish and multiple tries failed to correct the issue. Pick up one of the small brochures to get at least some detail. Don't miss the ride to the roof for a spectacular view. Some wait for the lift and 29 steps to climb after the lift but well worth it.

    Amazing building and museum. Recently renovated so is immaculate. Our guide was fantastic and explained everything perfectly in awesome English. Of all the tours we did this was the best in the city.

    Las Ramblas is one of the most famous streets in Barcelona. It is a tree lined pedestrian walk of 1.2km that is flanked by a road. There are "pop up" kiosks selling a range of products (hats, trinkets, etc) and many of the permanent restaurants/cafes have seating areas within the Ramblas.

    It's a relatively easy walk on a level service, but is always busy and has a reputation for being the pickpocket capital of the world, so need to be aware of your belongings at all times.

    There are a lot of high end shops and well known chain shops flanking the central walk way - so if you are into shopping, this is one place you wouldn't want to miss.

    The work of Catalan master architect, Lluis Domenech i Montaner, is best represented here. The progressive way in which the entire hospital complex is conceived was extraordinary over 100 years ago and still is today. The architecture design was dedicated to the healing and health of the patient. Make a visit and you will see how the gardens, vistas, and beautiful architecture all come together to promote wellness. Science and spirituality come together in a most compelling way. Beautiful place for a day visit and they have a great gift shop for authentic and unique souvenirs.
