Points of interest

    Enter into the Modernist neighbourhood of Barcelona and admire its fabulous architectural style. Each building has its own peculiar shape and at any corner you can observe beauty. This area of the city is also famous for its glamour and the best boutiques in town. Your guide will help you find the most unmissable corners of this district and show you the best place for tapas or shopping.

  • Passeig de Gracia:
    Probably the most famous avenue of the city, home of the most beautiful houses of Barcelona and of the most exclusive boutiques in town. Walk through luxury and elegance, get inspiration for your most glamorous outfit or ask to your guide for the best michelin restaurants nearby.

  • Casa Lleó i Morera:
    Have a look at the house that pioneered the modernist style in Barcelona, constructed by Domenech i Montaner, the teacher of Gaudí at university.

  • Casa Amatller:
    Home of the famous chocolate makers of Barcelona, this house is a true gem of the Modernist architecture. Take the chance to but some very good chocolate to bring home.

  • Casa Batlló:
    The colour and fantasy of the Casa Batlló captivates passers-by on the Passeig de Gràcia. Standing halfway up this elegant boulevard and in a strongly contrasting style to the neighbouring houses, the Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera, Gaudí's building reveals the splendour of an architect who was able to work on this project with total creative freedom, producing one of the most outstanding private houses in the world, listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

  • Casa Milà:
    The Casa Milá, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the culmination of Antoni Gaudí's career, designed as a Modernist building tailored to the new social needs, without forgetting his main source of inspiration: natural and organic forms.

  • Casa de les Punxes:
    Along the way, pass by one of the true gems of Modernist architecture to find out about the legend of St George, the Patron Saint of Barcelona and many other countries and cities…

  • Sagrada Familia:
    The life project of a genius or a fool, with no doubts the Sagrada Familia will leave a lifelong impression. Experience a moment full of emotion, admiring Gaudí's masterpiece, considered as the most emblematic landmark of Barcelona.
    There are no words to describe the feeling one gets when entering this magnificent temple of Modernism. The organic shapes found throughout its structure, the light filtering through its stained glass windows and the symbolic nature of the building’s sculpted façade will certainly be the highlight of your tour.

Tour Description

Meet your guide in the center of Barcelona, and then set out on your 3-hours architectural walking tour. Listen as your guide offers fascinating insights into Gaudí and his major works. Explore the work of this visionary modernist architect, and learn the secrets of how he realized his goals.
Understand how the mountains of Montserrat inspired him to build La Pedrera, and how he based his own art on the legend of Sant Jordi, patron of Catalonia.
Also explore other works and important buildings of modernist architects as you visit the Eixample, which was born in the mid-nineteenth century from the expansion of the city beyond its medieval walls. Discover the ideals of the urban planner Ildefons Cerdà and his vision that each interior block should have had a garden.
Finally, marvel at Gaudí's masterpiece La Sagrada Familia (the Holy Family) and his boundless imagination in its representation of the Old Testament. Learn about its complex symbolism and the controversy surrounding the interpretation of Josep Maria Subirachs, Gaudí's successor. Your tour concludes at La Sagrada Familia, offering the opportunity to independently explore further.
