As you know, Antoni Gaudi is the city’s most talented architect, so on this Gaudi’s Masterpieces tour, we invite you to discover his greatest works in Barcelona.
Born in 1852, at Riudoms, a small town in Southern Catalonia’s countryside. Gaudi moved to Barcelona at a young age to attend the University and got his degree in Architecture. He will stay then for good in Barcelona, building his most celebrated works in our city, from single homes to apartment buildings, churches, residential areas, so many projects in 74 years of life.
It is fascinating to discover that the same countryside of Gaudi’s childhood will be a major inspiration for Picasso and Miro too.
The Gaudi’s Masterpieces sites that we will show you on this tour are:
- The incredible Sagrada Família is the most visited tourist attraction in Spain and a “must-see” in Barcelona. We offer you inside and outside visits.
- The Park Güell with its long colorful bench, the salamander fountain, and some of the city’s most amazing panoramic views.
- Casa Mila (Pedrera) and Casa Batlló from outside admiring the façades of these two amazing buildings located just a few blocks from each other, on the most beautiful avenue in Barcelona, the Passeig de Gracia. All of them are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
There are many other Gaudi’s buildings that are worth the visit too. If you like to go a bit more off the beaten path, we recommend you to visit the Casa Vicens and Palau Güell (on our “Gaudi the rookie” Special tour).
Obviously, being with an officially licensed guide on the Gaudi’s Masterpieces tour means priority access to all the main sights. You’ll enjoy and profit more from your stay in our city.
