The Sagrada Familia neighborhood

The Sagrada Familia is one of the most visited monuments in Spain and is considered Gaudi's masterpiece. And no wonder, this beautiful monument is full of details that will captivate all visitors.

In addition, you can admire it from different points of the city and visiting it can be one of the best experiences of your life if what you like is culture, design and history.

The Basilica is located in the neighborhood with its own name "Sagrada Familia'' within the Eixample Dret district of the Catalan city.

It is surrounded by the main avenues of the city such as Avenida Diagonal, Avenida Gaudi, Calle Dos de Maig, Calle Nápoles, Calle Aragó. It is considered a residential neighborhood, quiet and very central.


What can we find in this neighborhood?

In the surroundings you can find many attractions such as the Plaça de Gaudi, which is a beautiful park next to the Sagrada Familia, with a lake in the center.

Ideal for walks and strolls on the weekend, to enjoy a delicious ice cream while contemplating the Basilica or simply to rest on one of its benches.

On the other side of the Sagrada Familia there is another beautiful park, the Plaça de la Sagrada Familia, which is worth visiting.

Another must of this neighborhood is to walk along the beautiful Gaudí Avenue, ideal to stop and enjoy a nice coffee or vermouth while contemplating the basilica.

If you go up Gaudí Avenue you will find the old modernist building Hospital Sant Pau designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner,
