During this private tour through the heart of Barcelona, we’ll introduce you to Antoni Gaudí, Barcelona’s most important architect, and situate his work within the context of Catalan society at the time. Besides visiting some of Gaudí’s most important works, we’ll look broadly at how Barcelona expanded in the late 19th and early 20th century and became a breeding ground for the modernist movement.
Our tour starts at Casa Batlló. The design of the house made the place undesirable to buyers but the Batlló family decided to buy it due to its centralized location. After visiting Casa Batlló we will walk along the beautiful avenue of Passeig de Gracia, a place where modern-day Barcelona first started, to go to our next destination - Casa Mila - La Pedrera.
Here we study amazing stories hidden in Casa Mila and then move by metro to Barcelona’s main landmark – Sagrada Familia. After discussing the story behind Sagrada Familia, you will have free time inside the church.
