The Sagrada Familia, still under construction since 1882, is the most representative building of the architect of Reus and the symbol par excellence of the city. It is the second most visited monument in Spain, just after the Alhambra of Granada. Julià Travel offers a guided tour with fast track to the basilica and with or without access to the towers.

Another representative building of the Catalan modernism is the Park Güell, with its pavilions, the famous Dragon Stairway, the Nature Square and the Laundry Room Portico.
