Take an art-lover's tour of Barcelona as you learn the history and inspiration behind the many creations of Catalan master Antoni Gaudí. Whether you're an admirer of architecture or simply looking to gain a better understanding of the life of one of Barcelona's most famous citizens, this tour offers the perfect starting point.
Begin your 3.5-hour tour by meeting your guide in central Barcelona at 3:30pm, and heading to the tour's first stop at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia. Considered by many to be one of Gaudí's finest creations, this towering architectural masterpiece features a visually striking arrangement of skinny spires and detail-rich facades. Listen to details from your guide about the history of this incredible building, which is still under construction more than 130 years after work began.
Continue to Park Güell, a gorgeous Gaudí-designed park situated in the hills above Barcelona on the hill of El Carmel. This beautiful park, covered head to toe with intricate mosaic-tiled terraces, benches, sculptures, and walls, frequently experiences long lines at its entrance. But thanks to your fast-track ticket included with your tour, you'll leap right past these lines on your way in, spending the extra time you might have been waiting experiencing the striking walkways and leaf-shrouded grounds of this urban oasis.
Leave Park Güell and head next to Passeig de Gràcia back in the city center. This iconic street features a number of Gaudí designs, including two private residences, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, that have been converted into museums. Visit both homes, taking time to learn from your guide about how the wealthy Batlló and Milà families collaborated with Gaudí on the projects, along with the ensuing scandal that resulted when the homes were finally unveiled to the public. Capture a few photos in front of these two amazing architectural works before leaving your guides near Casa Batlló.
