The Spanish city of Barcelona is famous for its distinctive architecture. Catalan artist Antoni Gaudi designed many of the city's notable buildings. The art nouveau trend, which favored curved, organic shapes over stark and straight lines, inspired much of Gaudi's work. He also pioneered a mosaic technique that recycled broken tile into colorful facades and sculptures.
Gaudi's architecture is present across Barcelona. Visitors flock to his Park Guell, a planned community turned museum. Other sites include the Casa Batllo and Casa Mila in the Passeig de Gracia neighborhood. His most famous work, La Sagrada Familia, broke ground in 1883. It is expected to be completed in 2026, 100 years after Gaudi's death.
