About the Tour

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 hides 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.
In 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.

Our tour with Patrick was wonderful, he's a real storyteller and was able to introduce us to the modernist movement in an intriguing and engaging way! We took a walk along Passeig de Gracia and reached Sagrada Familia by metro, stopping to look at the facades while listening to Patrick's excellent descriptions and analysis. We 100% recommend taking a tour with him, you'll have fun while learning something new about the city!
