What's in our tour?
This Gaudi walking tour explores the work of the magical architect who single-handedly made Barcelona so unique – Antoni Gaudi, in the early 1900’s. It is our introduction to Barcelona.
The tour starts right at Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece and Barcelona’s main landmark – Sagrada Familia (exact meeting point in Avinguda de Gaudi 2)
After studying amazing stories hidden in Sagrada Familia facades we then move by metro towards “Passeig de Gracia,” where modern-day Barcelona first started, and we explore Eixample – the template district for the rest of our city – and we see Gaudi’s main constructions – Casa Batlló, Casa Milà etc.
We also discuss the human stories behind each of these buildings – who commissioned each of these works and why, and what it’s like to live in these buildings. We discuss what Gaudi was trying to do – his “catalanity” philosophy.
Our tour ends in front of Casa Batllo which you can visit right after our tour.
