About the Guru

Be Local Tours is more than a company, it is a family. We are a group of local guides from Barcelona who have come together to show a different point of view of each corner of the city since 2017. We make visitors fall in love and locals impressed. For a real experience ... take the tour with a local!

About the Tour

Catalan modernism was a political- cultural movement that yearned to transform society. It had its maximum expression between 1885 and 1920, as a consequence of the industrial revolution and the technological advances derived from it, such as electricity and the railroad.
With the demolition of the walls that surrounded the city of Barcelona, the lands outside the walls, which until then had been used as agricultural fields and military zones, were urbanized through the Cerdà Plan of 1959.
The Catalan bourgeoisie widely rejected the project for economic reasons and for the non-differentiation of classes. But finally, the Cerdà Plan prevailed, creating the Eixample, which became the center of residence for this enlightened bourgeoisie.

Hola hicimos la ruta modernista con Fran, la verdad nos encantó!! Nos hizo unas explicaciones súper amenas, es encantador! Al ser sólo nosotras, nos adaptó el itinerario un poco a nuestras necesidades, lo que es de agradecer. Todo un acierto la verdad! Gracias Fran! Repetiremos!
