Visit a city known for its architecture that is complemented by centuries of mosaics, from traditional to modern.
Mosaics were originally brought to Barcelona by the Romans and over the centuries have become a definitive part of the culture of the city. Mosaic creations cover entire walls, floors, pillars and ceilings of buildings, museums, churches, cathedrals.
Visit the Palau de la Musica Catalana to see mosaics depicting singing choirs. See the magnificent Basilica La Sagrada Familia which has towering spires covered in mosaic detailing. Much of the modern day mosaic art, known as 'Broken Tile Mosaic' was created by the iconic Catalan artist Antoni Gaudi, who decorated the city with stunning colours using conventional tiles, broken crockery, glass shards and other innovative items.
Visit the Park Güell, a mosaic lovers paradise. The walkways, buildings, fountains and stone animals are covered with mosaic. Relax on concrete benches adorned with mosaic creations and take a photo next to a huge dragon in a fountain, all covered in beautiful coloured tiles.
To get hands on with mosaics, visit Studio Mosaiccos where you can take a lesson in the El Trencadis technique and create a masterpiece to take home.
