The Mandarin Oriental’s terrace beckons to the affluent and speaks of the rich, timeless culture that only the Catalan capital could call to mind. Falling within your gaze, while you are high atop the ‘Majestic Mandarin’, is a rich and thriving cityscape that’s heavily steeped in the influence of the great Antonio Gaudí, arguably, the most famous architect of the 20th century. The very name, along with his awe-inspiring architectural style, has become synonymous with the ambiance and culture that became the City of Barcelona. The Mandarin Oriental is located within proximity to the ‘Passeig de Gracia’, which is known for being Spain's most exclusive and expensive street.

One of the most memorable experiences that a traveler may come to appreciate and remember forever is the stunning architecture of the entire Barcelona area. Antonio Gaudí (The Great) is intrinsically connected to Barcelona and forever imprinted on the hearts and minds of the residents there because of his incredibly individualistic and expressive style of architecture. Gaudi’s unmistakable architectural style and flair have come to define the aesthetic of the entire Barcelona area and speak of the rich heritage from which it was borne. You’ll find few places in Barcelona that do not speak of the most famous architect of the 20th century, whose works are intensely humanistic and deftly original - an accurate reflection of the Catalan spirit and soul.
