Tour description

Come on a journey through late 19th/early 20th century upmarket Barcelona, to see the life and works of Catalunya’s architectural genius Antoni Gaudí and his contemporaries.

Explore the social, cultural and political forces that literally shaped the physical appearances of these stunning buildings. Fancy houses of rich industrialists, merchants and chocolatiers with their astonishing details, flamboyant decoration that hide the secrets and amazing stories of their powerful owners. But you´ll also hear of legends, the clashing of social classes and an understanding of Gaudí, his methods, ideas and personality.

At the end, finish with an  explanation of Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, a unique church famous all over the world as the symbol of Barcelona.

Great tour! We have seen these buildings many times before, but never known the history or background of the modernist style. I really recommend the tour. Patrick really brought them to life, in a very interesting and informative way.

Patrick was a phenomenal tour guide who shared detailed and in-depth history of Barcelonan architecture. We really enjoyed learning about the the histories of the Amatller House, Casa Batllo, and Casa Milà. Very well done Patrick! I could listen to his history lessons all day!
