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
