Here is some help if you are wondering, which are the Top 5 things to see in Barcelona. Number 1 - Sagrada Familia Barcelonas is famous for La Sagrada Familia, a huuuuge church built by Antoni Gaudi. They are building on this church now  for more than 120 years and it is still, yes STILL, under construction. 55 % are finished, which include the Nativity Facade and the Passion facade and as well 8 towers (at the end 12 - one for each apostel). You can't really describe this incredible church with word, so you better watch the video :) Metro: Sagrada Familia Price: 13 € adults, 11 € students Number 2 - La Fontana Magica The Magic Fountain makes you feel like in Disneyland. It is located between the MNAC, the Museum of National Art of Catalunya and Plaza España with its "Las Arenas" Shoppingmall and 2 big towers. The Magic Fountain consists first of all, goes without saying" of a looot of water. Apart from that it is illuminated and the colors are changing PLUS there is music as well. Sometimes there is also a music theme, such as Walt Diney movies, Christmas songs, Rock songs, classical music etc. So sit there on the stairs, enjoy a cold spanish beer and watch this great show of water, light and music. Metro: Espanya Price: for free :) Open: in Summer from Thu to Sun from 20:00 until 24:00 (you better don't go before 22:00, otherwise you will still have daylight) Number 3 - Las Ramblas Las Ramblas is more or less the tourist avenue of Barcelona and one of the most famous symbols of the city. They reach from Plaza Catalunya all the way down to the Columbus Statue at the port and Las Ramblas consist of six avenues, each one with a name and its own history: together they form a one kilometer walk around a continuous show of street performers, mimes, jugglers, musicians and sellers, framed by a large number of shops, bars and restaurants. Life on the Ramblas never stops, night and day. The central part of the avenues is pedestrian, always full of tourists attracted by the colorful and lively atmosphere. Metro: Catalunya, Liceu or Drassanes Number 4 - Casa Mila Casa Milà or also known asLa Pedrerais a building on Passeig de Gracia (#92) and was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
