Spain has much to offer its tourists and locals. It is a country chock full of history and culture, and no better place to visit, or live in, than one of its major cities – Barcelona.
Being one of the country’s major cities, Barcelona has several of the most iconic Spanish landmarks. In fact, they never run out of it. That is why when people visit the place, some have loads of stories to tell, and that is why in some cases, others decide to look for housing for rent in Barcelona.
What are some of the hotspots in Barcelona that would make you want to stay?
- Sagrada Familia
An ongoing project since 1882, the Sagrada Familia is still under construction to this day. Interrupted so many times, it has now been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Through private donations, it has passed its midpoint by 2010, and is currently still under construction.
If you want to witness history in the making, literally, then, you may find housing for rent in Barcelona. Of course, if you do not want to experience the loud noises from the construction, you can wait until 2026, when it is expected to finally take its final shape.
- Columbus Monument
If you are an American, you might want to see the man responsible for the discovery of your country. Just around the lower end of La Rambla, Barcelona, is a 197 ft statue of Christopher Columbus. This was erected to commemorate the first voyage of Columbus down in Americas. In addition, he is shown pointing towards the direction of the New World to where he travelled to discover which eventually became the United States of America.
