This church is a neo-Gothic temple built in 1885. This church not only stands out for its great height (which can be seen from all over Sarrià), but also thanks to its Latin cross floor plan with a pyramidal spire finish.

3. Teresian College of Barcelona

Yes, we know that it is strange for a school to be a point of interest in a municipality. But the Teresiano school is not just a concrete school. This school was built between 188 and 1890 by the well-known architect Antonio Gaudí, and it belongs to the modernist style: it is not very difficult to see that because of its most notorious characteristics.

On the outside of the building you can see a façade with spikes crowning it, in addition, you can also see that the body of the entrance protrudes from the façade, revealing the coat of arms (which is made of coloured glass). Without a doubt, the Teresian School is a work to be admired!
