About the tour

Expect to be blown away by the most unique architecture works of art and by the intriguing stories behind them. It is hard to understand Catalan Modernism without observing the shapes, exuberance and playfulness that characterizes this movement. You will be amazed as we walk you through the less obvious details that these beautiful constructions hide.

Understand the implicit representations and symbolisms of the creators, the fundamental role of nature, and the importance of functionality in these buildings. Learn about the curiosities of the burgess families that once inhabited these magical constructions. Finally, discover the forces that inspired Gaudi’s original work as you learn about his particular lifestyle and character. It doesn’t matter if you’re an architecture fan or if you simply want to enjoy a walk around Barcelona’s most beautiful streets. Everyone is welcome.

Highlights of the Modernism and Gaudí Tour:

- Gaudí's life and work

-The birth of the Eixample District

-The famous Sagrada Familia

-The charms of Paseo de Gracia

-The Block of Discord

-Casa Lleó i Morera

-Casa Batlló

-Casa Ametller

-Casa Milá

-The Catalan Renaissance...and much much More!

I've always admired the style and architecture of the city but didn't know much about how it came to be until now. The last time I visited I wanted to actually learn about it and not just walk around the city looking at the beautiful buildings. The tour guide was super well informed and had tons of cool information! The tour was very easy-going. Totally recommended!

me gusto muchísimo, lo hice por acompañar unas visitas pues no era yo la mejor guia para explicarles la ciudad pese a tener 2 años viviendo acá y me pareció increíble toda la historia y secretos que hay detrás de sitios que vemos en el dia a dia los que vivimos en barcelona (por fin entendí porque las letras dicen B A R C I N O en la plaza de la catedral por ejemplo) , si vives aca o si solo estas de paso, recomendado!
