Torre de Collserola: Popular among travelers as Collserola Tower, this great structure was built for Olympic Games in 1992. It has a restaurant and observation deck, which can be of great interest for visitors. This tower stands apart as one of the best examples of Barcelona's contemporary architecture.

Palau Güell: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this mansion was designed by Antoni Gaudi. It has a main room which was used for entertaining elite guests. It was closed in 2004 as it required renovations for restoring weak stones. It was then reopened partially in 2008 and fully in 2011 when its restoration was completed.

Casa Milà: Another masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi, it is also known as La Pedrera and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This structure is considered highly innovative as it has a facade which is self-supporting. It also has a car parking underground and separate elevators for owners and servants. .
Cathedral La Seu: This cathedral has Gothic interiors, with front and spire having a French influence. Construction of this church began in late thirteenth century and was completed in the 1800s. It contains tomb of a Christian martyr while carvings on choir stalls have been done brilliantly.

Castell de Montjuïc: This is a large fort built in eighteenth century by the Bourbons. It was built for the purpose of defending the city, but eventually housed the Museu Militar or military museum. It was closed in 2009 for renovations and would be used for cultural activities once the work gets done.

Casa Batlló: This classic building has its facade decorated with broken ceramic tiles of various shades. Restoration was done by Antoni Gaudi and Josep Maria Jujol with significant contribution from other assistants. Locals call it Casa Dels Ossos which means 'House of Bones', due to its skeletal quality. .
Hospital de Sant Pau: Foundations of this hospital date back to the early fifteenth century. It has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the complex was built during early twentieth century. Contrary to its name, it is no longer a hospital as it was closed for renovation in 2009.

Casa Amatller: Originally designed for Antoni Amatller, its construction was done between the years 1898 and 1900. It is held in great regard for its modernist outlook and is listed among most important buildings in the city. It was designed in Modernisme style by Josep Puig i Cadafalch.

Santa Maria Del Pi: This Gothic church was built during the fourteenth century. A major fire in 1936 caused serious damages to this structure, especially its windows. Restoration work was carried out in the following years and it regained most of its damaged parts.
