Castell de Montjuic

an imposing castle that dominated the city since 1640. It was primarily used to repress the people of Spain during two centuries under the Franco regime. Castell de Montjuïc offers a spectacular view over Barcelona, the port, and the sea from Barcelona's high mountain. Today it contains the museum of military history and is a popular attraction on the Montjuïc.

La Pedrera

is the last civil work of Antoni Gaudí, La Casa Milà. Partially because the cliffs near Barcelona were the inspiration of the great architect, but also due to the appearance of the wavy facade of the building. With no gratitude from the locals of the city who covered it with sobriquets, Gaudí pursued legal action. A riotous history for what is a monument of Catalan modernism.

Park Guell

The park is one of Gaudí’s chief works in Barcelona, located in the upper part of the city offers remarkable views of Barcelona. Park Guell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill.

“We consulted with World Travelers Today about whether or not to cancel our trip to Spain following a terrorist attack that happened near the hotel we booked. Sam helped us weigh our options and provided excellent advice on how to become cognizant travelers without missing out on the adventures we were anticipating. We felt confident and safe throughout our whole trip thanks to Sam's highly detailed guidance. He knew the area like the back of his hand and was able to route us to incredible experiences we may have otherwise missed. The trip culminated with a rooftop proposal in Barcelona--a memory we'll never forget. We have Sam to thank for encouraging us to seize our opportunity to experience this extraordinary city and culture. We'll have memories and stories to tell for a lifetime! Thanks, WTT!”
