Get acquainted with the architectural wonders of Antoni Gaudí, the godfather of Catalan Modernism, on this guided day trip to Barcelona from the Costa Brava. Tour the capital's top Gaudí sights, including the UNESCO-listed Park Güell, Plaça de Catalunya and La Sagrada Familia, the jewel in Barcelona’s architectural crown. If you’ve opted for the afternoon departure, you’ll cap your full-day tour with a viewing of the Montjuic Magic Fountain light show.
Climb aboard an air-conditioned coach at your Costa Brava hotel and admire the Catalonian countryside as you travel to Barcelona. First, absorb city views from the Alcalde viewpoint before travelling to La Sagrada Familia — the iconic and famously unfinished cathedral that reigns over Barcelona’s skyline.
As you gaze at the modernist masterpiece, designed by Antoni Gaudi, you’ll hear of the UNESCO-listed landmark’s fascinating history from your guide. Then, head to the epitome of Catalan modernism, Park Güell, and explore the park’s colorful highlights: see the Doric Temple, the Hall of a Hundred Columns and the renowned mosaic dragon.
After discovering Park Güell, you’ll enjoy some relaxed free time to browse the tree-lined boulevards and stylish boutiques of Plaça de Catalunya. Receive recommendations from your guide and feast on traditional Spanish tapas (own expense) before reconvening with your guide at a prearranged location.
Las Ramblas — Barcelona’s main boulevard —is considered the spiritual heart of the Catalan capital. As you wander down the famous street, you’ll enjoy gorgeous views of the Mediterranean Sea, relish the artistic ambience of the area and learn about the Art Nouveau movement in Catalonia.
If you’d like more time to explore independently, choose the morning tour. Those wishing to visit Montjuic and witness the spectacular Magic Fountain show, opt for evening departure.

The date was changed without giving us notice, We had to call for the update as no one contacted us. This really complicated our plans as we had planned everything out day by day....The Gaudi Sight seeing tour without actually going to the Park Güell....be Careful when booking this as Gaudi Park Güell is not included. The tour was actually pretty good and tour guide was good too.....however, one big issue for us was that Gaudi was not included. A very miss-leading description, that I hope Viator change....when we asked the tour guide she said no no Gaudi is not included even though the description of the tour clearly states 1 hour exploring Park Güell where all of Gaudi's work is showcased. So we missed out on one of Barcelona's biggest attractions......We decided to go by Taxi to Park Güell however to find out its Full and we could not get tickets.....So terribly disappointing that we missed out due to errors in the description.....
