"[I have never seen a building with such a long construction cycle in China] The Sagrada Familia, the legacy of Gaudi, which started construction before 137, is still growing up in the sky, and it will grow for a hundred years. . ."

Reasons to Recommend: The Sagrada Familia is a prestigious tourist attraction and landmark in Barcelona. It is a stunning work by the great architect Antoni Gaudí, but was never completed. Donations keep construction going and it is due to be completed by 2026. Construction of the Nativity facade and basement has been taken over by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Climb up one of the tall spires of the church to enjoy a bird's eye view of Barcelona.

"The interior of the Church of Our Lady is tall and solemn. Unlike the Sagrada Familia, the decoration is much less, and the view is exposed to the original stone. But the windows are very beautiful."

Reasons to Recommend: This magnificient 700-year-old cathedral is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Spain. Some of the porters who helped build the cathedral have been rendered in sculpture on the main doors of the building. Some are held in Catalan and Spanish on most days.

"The Cathedral of Barcelona is the main church of the city, it is now located on a modest street, there is no huge square in front, although it is the main church, but its fame is completely covered by another Sagrada Familia, not many visitors come to visit the card, More likely to be devout Christians, visitors interested in cultural history can come and see it, it has its own specialty. Its history compares to most of the buildings visited in Barcelona, the church built in the 13th and 15th centuries of Barcelona's heyday. It took 150 years to build and finish, and today we see three medieval churches. The neo-Gothic facade we see was built in the 19th century. So the various parts of the church are different in architectural styles, and are completely different from the cathedrals we have seen before."

Reasons to Recommend: The main body of Barcelona Cathedral is dominated by Gothic style, with slender lines as the main feature, and the dome and internal structure show neo-gothic style. Through the elevator on the dome of the church you can reach the top of the church and enjoy the sights of the old city of Barcelona. The worshippers of the various industrial guilds are enshrined in the prayer rooms of the cathedral cloister. The choir's seats, religious murals, sculptures and a variety of gold and silver instruments in the Saint Eulalia Chapel are gorgeous. In addition, the Eulalia virgin cemetery and the Lepando Christ prayer room deserve special attention.

"Montserrat is 60 kilometers away from Barcelona and takes about an hour by train. It is a stone mountain made of volcanic rocks. Take the R5 train at ESPANYA in Barcelona. The Montserrat area is not large, and you will reach the entrance of the monastery by going out by cable car. The entrance is in the middle of the two buildings. The outer building of the monastery is not conspicuous and quite simple, and the inner courtyard is more luxurious. There are statues of the twelve disciples of Jesus and the entrance to the monastery on the right side of the inner courtyard. You can line up for the pilgrimage to the Virgin of the Black Face. Legend has it that spinning the ball in the hands of the Black-faced Madonna can get good luck."

"Walking along the Angel Gate pedestrian street, there is an alley halfway into the church. There are no road signs and no navigation and it is not easy to find. The outside of the church is quite quiet, but the exterior is a bit old, no tickets are needed to go in, just look around and leave."

"It is the purest Gothic building in Catalonia, wide without the mannerism of churches in other regions. This is a people’s church. Back then, Barcelona people used to build this church one day a week from the royal quarry of Montjuic, with their reliefs on the door."

"Colonia Güell Church is the most magical among Gaudí's many imaginative works. Its appearance is like a cave, blending with the surrounding forest. The unpolished stone pillars and the stained glass windows in the church all bring a sense of mystery to the church."

"Although relatively small, it is one of the Spanish Baroque buildings with the most relevant architecture. Its unique convex facade is not very common. In Spain, there is only one Baroque in Madrid."
