The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, one of the most emblematic buildings in Barcelona, ​​could not be missing from this list. It is the work of the genius Antoni Gaudí and, in fact, perfectly represents the architect’s artistic conception. As you already know, it has not been finished yet.

Real Alcazar, Seville

We return to Seville to tell you about the Real Alcázar, which is located in front of the Cathedral. Its construction dates back to the caliphate of Abd al-Rahman III, although it was King Pedro I who promoted the construction of the great Mudejar palace.
