Barcelona's rich architectural, artistic and cultural heritage make it a major international destination, and it offers numerous sites and activities for your stay at the Campanile Barcelona Sud Cornella. The city's landscape has been heavily influenced by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, who designed many of its famous structures.
The Sagrada Família, a Roman Catholic church blending Gothic and Art Nouveau styles, was a long-time project of Gaudí and is perhaps Barcelona's most iconic building. Gaudi's modernist influence can also be seen in the Casa Milí , which has wavy, curtain-like exterior walls and in the Casa Batlló, a skeletal, multi-story building with covered in a mosaic of broken ceramic tiles. Barcelona art museums offer more opportunities for cultural immersion.
The National Art Museum of Catalonia houses collections of Romanesque paintings and modern Catalan art, while the Picasso Museum is dedicated to the works of Pablo Picasso.
The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary art features Catalan and Spanish works, dating from the second half of the 20th century onward. Other noteworthy museums include the Fundació Joan Miró and the Museum of the History of Catalonia. Barcelona is also well known for its outdoor spaces, including seven beaches and over sixty municipal parks. Park Güell, which was designed by Gaudí, contains gardens, as well as a museum dedicated to its architect.
