The Gaudí Tour: An absolute must for any visitor to Barcelona, introducing you to the creative genius of an icon. Discover what makes these buildings extraordinary: the detail, the symbols, the structural secrets and the technical innovation.

Open your eyes, heart and mind during the Gaudí Tour – wonder at how Gaudí used nature as his source of inspiration, you will find that what seems like chaos is actually based in sophisticated mathematics. Each detail is full of surprises waiting to be discovered. Antoni Gaudí was a visionary architect during Barcelona’s modernista period early 1900. He graced Barcelona with nearly all its extraordinary buildings. No less than 7 have been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, including Sagrada Família and Casa Batlló.

Sagrada Família

Meet your guide at the central Barcelona tour office to begin your tour with a panoramic tour of Sagrada Familia. Probably Gaudì’s most famous work, the Sagrada Família combines Gothic with Art Nouveau style to create truly unique cathedral unlike any other. Admire the peculiar characteristics of the exterior and marvel at the symbolism of the façade details before returning to the bus for the short trip to Park Güell.

Park Güell

Opened in 1926, Park Güell display’s Gaudi’s personal style in its design as he drew inspiration from nature and organic shapes. Explore the UNESCO world heritage listed park with a guided tour and admire the many emblematic works that dot the area.

Passeig de Gràcia

This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudí’s tiles for the pavement and a myriad of grand buildings:
• La Pedrera, Casa Milà. Check out the wavy façade with its extraordinary balconies, and don’t miss the top with the weird chimneys that resemble soldiers looking out for the residents.
• The block of discord. The main architects from the modernista style had the chance to show their best: Gaudí with Casa Batlló, Domènech i Montaner with Casa Lleó Morera and Puig i Cadafalch with Casa Amatller

Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló is not just a building but an artistic legend; The exceptional façade reflects a tranquil sea and, hidden behind it, is a world of surprised and refined architectural details. Include entrance by upgrading when you book.
