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. 


 - Catalonian square

 - Paseo de Gracia

 - Palau Malagrida

Patrick was so friendly and knowledgeable! We loved his story telling and his sense of humour. He did an amazing job of providing enough information about the places we saw without being too detailed that we kept listening to him intently the whole time. Would definitely recommend his tour yo anyone :)

Patrick was the best tour guide I have ever had. Very easygoing and passionate guy, it felt as if we were Gaudi professionals at the end of his tour. He interacts with people and makes the tour very fun and goes the extra mile to inform people about how to keep their belongings safe from pick pocketed. I highly recommend this tour, especially with Patrick.

We arrived in Barcelona last night and this morning Patrick gave us an outstanding tour, offering insight into Gaudi and his work. Patrick also gave us very useful information to help navigate the rest of our Barcelona experience.

Patrick was awesome. The way he presented Gaudi’s work of art was so passionate, it made the works of art more spectacular than it already was. The tour was overall very informative, well put together and organized.
