Description of the guided tour

This tour centres on the most important works from Antoni Gaudí and from Catalan Modernism, all of which have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

La Sagrada Familia, Casa Battló and the Park Güell. The visit enables guests to get closer to the life, persona and work of this renowned architect while placing them in the Barcelona of his era—the birth of the Eixample district, the late 19th century and the artistic movements defined by the political environment.

We’ll also be able to check out the exterior of many Modernist houses and buildings designed by other important architects.

First, we’ll visit La Sagrada Familia and don’t forget, because your guide is accredited by the Government of Catalonia, you won’t have to queue.

We’ll find out why this project became a vital and spiritual obsession of Gaudí while exploring every detail of the temple.

Later, we’ll travel by metro or in taxi to Casa Batlló (5-10 minute journey) in the very centre of Barcelona. Here, we’ll discuss the history and specifics of the building and its neighbour, Casa Amatller, from the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. There will also be time to admire the immense beauty of the other buildings in the area.

Then, we’ll head to Casa Milà (10-minute walk), also known as La Pedrera, another extravagant building from Gaudí with an equally quirky history. Lastly, we’ll finish off our journey through the life and work of Gaudí by visiting the Park Güell (15-minute taxi ride). There, we’ll delve into the history, little-known details and fabled stories of this curious space whose shapes, colours, animals, plants and houses seem to be taken from a fairy tale.
