This is a wonderful monument set in a very pleasant pedestrianised area complete with small turrets either side, intricate detail and fabulous figurines to the top. It's not quite as good as it's namesake but still worth seeing.

exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
