What You Can Expect
Then, explore the area, discovering the secrets to creative city photography. Learn how to frame the Modernist masterpieces of Born Cultural Centre as well as monumental basilicas and historical landmarks. El Born is also home to some of the city’s most attention-grabbing street art — sights you are sure to want to capture on film as a memento of your Barcelona vacation.
Continue through Port Vell, Barcelona’s historical port, and work your way up to higher ground to capture photos of sweeping panoramas over the harbor and city. Point your camera down over the fishing pier and discover the best angles to check out at this locals’ favorite vantage point.
Pass along the pier, seeing the famous Columbus Monument, and enjoy stops along the way to photograph colorful street art or perhaps a flawless Gothic building or snapshot of daily life. Soon, your route takes you into the Raval district, one of Barcelona’s more alternative neighborhoods, where the streets are steeped with a cosmopolitan vibe. Line up photos of Gaudi architecture, click away in front of the beautiful Film Library and take iconic Barcelona photos of streets flanked by balconied houses — all neatly bedecked with flowers.
Stop to photo the hustle and bustle at La Boqueria, a food market where the smells, shapes and colors of the city combine to set your senses alight. Snap away, getting the best ‘no filter’ shots, and purchase a quick bite for lunch if you'd like (own expense). Then work your way to Plaça dels Ángels, passing the MACBA contemporary art museum as you go. Your tour finishes at Plaça dels Ángels.
LOVED this tour!! It was by far the best one of my trip to Barcelona. The beautiful Spanish girl who conducted the tour was absolutely lovely, had great local knowledge and showed us quirky parts of the city that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. She taught me the basics about my camera that helped me take great photos, and recommended a fab iPhone/ iPad editing app that has made my photos look amazing! Thank you! The tour could be improved a bit with a quick stop off for some food, due to the hours stretching right through lunch (10am-3pm ish), I was a bit flagging by the end of it! There were only two people on the tour I went on, which was great, but not sure it would work as well if there were the maximum number of people on it.
I greatly enjoyed the tour. Alicia was very knowledgeable about the city. As I am an amateur/tourist photographer, her skills as a photography tutor was also exceptional. She showed me how to take more interesting and better shots with my compact camera and the camera on my smartphone.
The description should mention that scheduling the tour on Mondays is not recommended. The tour included several museums but all of them were closed on Mondays. I was advised to visit them during the remainder of my stay.
