One thing Barcelona does not lack is a healthy mix of historical landmarks; all of which are breathtaking and inspiring in their own right. Whether it's a hospital, a religious site or even a government building, Barcelona's buildings are laden with history and each created with a very strong attention to detail. Whether you're strolling down Passeig De Gracia, gawking at Gaudi's modernist masterpieces or in the Gotico surrounded by century-old structures, Barcelona is a beautiful city to walk through as it is one of the most aesthetically charming city's in the world. There is always something that will catch your eye and there are plenty of interesting places to visit full of exciting and unique anecdotes and tales from the past.
Many of the monuments and historic sites will lead you to different neighborhoods within the city, which are worth exploring. With most of the buildings being situated in Ciutat Vella (Old City) between the Gothic Quarter and Born areas, there are quite a lot in the Eixample as well. Arc de Triomf for example, is situated on the edge of the Born and if you continue walking you'll find yourself on larger walkways and amongst more trees than in the Old City. Not only are the monuments themselves worth exploring, but their surroundings are as well.
