Located in Spain's Northeastern Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is renowned in the world for its rich culture, history, arts and architecture. The city is popular among tourists from all over the world with its historic churches, magnificent architectures and notable landmarks, as well as the ultimate gastronomic experience tourists will get to achieve.

Planning to take a tour to Spain's most popular city for tourists? Here are the top 5 places that you must visit when you are travelling to Barcelona.

La Sagrada Familia. This beautifully made architecture by Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) is one of the reasons why people from different parts of the world aspire of travelling to Barcelona, Spain. This world renowned Basilica de la Sagrada Familia or Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a masterpiece whose construction began in the year 1882, Accor Hotels says. However, up to this date, the construction of this basilica remains unfinished. But this unfinished business does not hinder tourists from going back to this epitome of Roman architecture.

Museu Picasso. This museum is popular among tourists because of its amazingly restored medieval galleries and staircases that house incredible collections inside. Artists' expression of versatility and intelligence when it comes to transferring their ideas and feelings into a piece of art is depicted in the collection found in the museum's Palau Aguilar, Palau del Baró de Castellet and Palau Meca showing the art from the 14th century.

According to Barcelona Turisme, Museu Picasso has perfectly restored the remains and leftovers from the medieval and Roman times. The museum also houses over 3500 artworks from Picasso himself and other artists of different centuries.

Font Magica Fountain. The Font Mágica Fountain, simply called as the Magic Fountain, is among the top tourist attractions in Barcelona with its one of a kind fountain that jives to the rhythm of the music that forms a spectacular light and water show. Font Mágica Fountain is free of charge and no booking or reservation is needed for you to experience this enchanted aqua show.

FC Barcelona Camp Nou Stadium and Barca Museum. Home of the world-famous Barcelona football team, the FC Barcelona Camp Nou Stadium and Barca museum is a must-see among tourists especially to those who are madly in love with football.
