A truly world-class museum, the Prado Museum has a collection of more than 5,000 paintings. It rivals the Louvre collection in Paris.
Buen Retiro Park
Created for the Count-Duke of Olivares in the 17th century, the historic park has an elegant ambience with its lovely landscaping and tree-lined paths. From the main entrance at the Plaza de Independencia, visitors arrive at the pool in the centre of the park. From here, paths lead to the enchanting Rosaleda (Rose Garden) and the formal French Jardín de Don Cecilio.
This charming museum is dedicated to the work of Joaquín Sorolla, the most famous Spanish Impressionist artist. Displayed in beautiful bright rooms, the collection includes a broad representation of the artist's paintings and drawings.
This striking Gothic cathedral was built in 1298 where a Romanesque temple once sat. Its expansive construction has taken more than 150 years, built in three stages.
Built from 1906 to 1912 by renowned architect Antoni Gaudi, this iconic structure is known as one of his most ambitious projects.
Fundacio Joan Miro
The Fundació Joan Miró was established by Miró himself to display works from his private collection and foster contemporary art research in the centre of Barcelona.
