Barcelona, touristic reference

Indian leaders visited some of the main attractions of the city.

Indian pundits of the Indian Leaders Programme, spent part of their first day in Barcelona visiting many of the touristic assets that increase the projection of the city abroad. During the tour they made a visit to Casa Mila, declared World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1984. Currently, the building houses a cultural center and embraces the headquarters of Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation. During their visit to the also known as 'La Pedrera', the journalists have admired the various units of one of the most representative works of Gaudí's naturalistic period. From the roof of Casa Mila they were able to observe spectacular views of the city.

Later, the leaders have visited the Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia, whose works continue today since its start in 1882. They have been able to admire several perspectives of this brilliant arquitectural work. The church was originally designed with neo-Gothic style. But when Antoni Gaudí assumed the Project, he redesigned it under its own peculiar characteristics. From general sketches, he was improvising the construction as it went along. Since the Catalan architect died, in 1926, had only been built one tower. However, work continues based on his drawings and plaster models.

During their sightseeing tour around Barcelona, the leaders have been accompanied by the director of Casa Asia, Ramón Mª Moreno, the manager of the same institution, Montserrat Riba, and its director of communications, Josep Casaus.
