Your tour begins in Plaça Catalunya, an ornate square in the center of the Catalan capital. From here, you’ll stroll through the Gothic quarter — replete with shadow-shrouded alleys and medieval architecture — and listen to a vivid retelling of Barcelona’s historic heyday.
Stop at Cathedral Avenue for your first glimpse of La Sagrada Familia’s magnificent façade and then travel back in time to the origins of Barcelona at the ruins of a Roman temple. In Plaça Sant Jaume, you’ll admire City Hall and the Church of Santa Maria del Mar before heading to the Parc de Montjuic for panoramic vistas of the city.
Then, descend the hill to head inside one of the world’s most famous modernist masterpieces. Receive a detailed historical overview of the monument, learning about legendary architect, Antoni Gaudi, and then head inside with an audio guide.
Spend as much time as you like inside the church — generally one hour is recommended — and admire the magnificent interior architecture.
