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.

Patrick was an amazing guide. He pointed out details of the architecture and explained why the “modernistic” era began. We saw amazing homes which tried to out-do one another, and eventually travelled to Sagrada Familia. The entire tour was informative, and pleasant. Patrick did a great job, and we would be happy to take another tour with him in the future.

Great tour of the Gaudi and Modernist buildings with Patrick. Lots of information about the buildings, people and why the buildings were built in that style. Gave alot of context about each of the buildings, the families and the architect. Highly recommended.
