While in Barcelona, the Sagrada Família cathedral is a must-see. Along with Park Güell, it's the best representation of the city's unique architecture designed by native son, Antoni Gaudí.
The massive 16th century El Escorial serves as the final resting place of Spain's royalty and also is a palace, school, and monastery. Located outside Madrid, it's a great day trip from the capital city.
