By Viator, April 2014

4.5 511 Reviews | Add your review

Barcelona is beloved by generations of artists all of whom left their unique imprint on the city, from the sculptural architecture of Gaudí and the mythical paintings of Picasso, to surrealist icon Salvador Dalí.

Antoni Gaudí is Barcelona's most internationally renowned and emblematic architect. His buildings are gorgeously ornate and whimsical, eccentric grooves and rich colours with no straight edges.

Begin your artistic journey on Paseo de Gracia to famous apartment buildings Casa Batlló and Casa Milá, and Parc Güell's undulating seating, mosaics, and a dragon fountain! The Sagrada Familia church is the masterpiece of Gaudí's intricate and organic architecture. The Gaudí Museum located in the crypt, traces the life and career of the architect.

Barcelona Modernism Walking Tour takes you into "modernist" Barcelona in the Eixample district. Admire Catalan art Nouveau buildings by Gaudí and his contemporaries.

Pablo Picasso developed his famous style while living in Barcelona. See  the streets, bars and studios where Picasso lived and worked, before visiting the Picasso Museum. Housed in a fine medieval palace, the collection from the blue and pink periods gives a fascinating insight into how the paintings of a young boy developed into major works of a significant artist.

Step inside the surreal world of Salvador Dalí at the unique Dalí Museum in his birthplace Figueres. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work, refusing to have his works placed in chronological or subject order. Inside is a world of fantasy mixed with architecture, paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience. Visit his home in Port Lligat or Pubol Castle, which he built for his wife. Finish the day on his beloved Costa Brava, famous for its artistic gatherings and parties. There is no better homage to Dalí than enjoying the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
