Tour description

The origins of a young Picasso and the mysterious life of Gaudí. Two icons forged in one city.

Everyone knows Barcelona as the artistic capital of the Mediterranean , a city that has given life to two of the most influential artists in history.
On this tour we are going to focus on two great world figures, two geniuses , two transgressors, in short, two icons of world art and architecture.

We are talking about Picasso , born in Malaga in 1881, and Gaudí , born in Reus/Riudoms in 1852. Despite not being from Barcelona, their history and success would not make any sense without her.
We will enter the entire Ciutat Vella of Barcelona to learn in detail the origins of a young Pablo Picasso and the mysterious life of a reserved Antoni Gaudí.
Instead of focusing on the work of both artists, we will focus on the experiences of these two geniuses , which led them to be the references they are today.
Let's get lost in the streets of old Barcelona to learn about the origins of Pablo Picasso, where he forged his career to become one of the greatest artists in history and discover the hidden part of Gaudí's life, beyond the Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera or Park Güell.

Barcelona would not be the same without them, neither would they without Barcelona...

I got so much local insight from Uri, not just about Picasso and Gaudi but Barcelona as an evolving city.

Uri was wonderful in all respects. His tour was informative, interesting and mixed history with the contemporary. He is very kind, personable and was eager to answer any and all questions, incluidng a great recomendation for tapas. I would highly recommend Uri as a tour guide to everyone.

Informative, friendly, funny, cultural. 10/10, so much more than my girlfriend and I were expecting. Even more because we have been living here in Barcelona for 2 years and we have already gone to similar tours. Can't recommend the tour & our guide Uri enough!!
