Full description

Get an insider’s look at Modernist art on this intimate tour of Gaudí’s major works. Discover the masterpieces of the famous Catalan architect and learn with what inspirations Gaudí reached his goals.

We will begin the tour with a stroll down Passeig de Gràcia, one of the wealthiest avenues in Barcelona, lined with stunning Modernist architecture, glamorous shops, and high-end restaurants. Here, we will stop to admire two of Gaudí’s most famous buildings, both of them considered UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Learn how the rolling hills of Montserrat inspired the rooftop of "La Pedrera" and how Gaudí based his artwork in the “Casa Batlló” on Christian motifs and the legend of Sant Jordi, the patron of Catalonia.

Next, we will explore Gaudí’s crowning masterpiece and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the “Basilica de la Sagrada Familia”. Our guide will share with you some of the fascinating stories behind its conception, allowing your group to fully appreciate this complex work of art. Take a moment to marvel at the exquisite detail displayed on the Nativity Façade. Your group will also hear about the inspiration behind the structure’s unique architectural features and the interpretation of their meaning by Gaudí’s successor, architect Josep Maria Subirachs.

During the tour, you will also visit several Modernist buildings in Eixample designed by other architects. This neighborhood is part of the modern Barcelona, born in the mid-nineteenth century after the Cerdà Plan expanded the city beyond its old medieval walls. This monumental project was funded by Barcelona’s bourgeoisie families as a way to show off their wealth and innovative ideas. These buildings are still around today and the interiors of many are accessible to visitors as free access parks. Our guide will take you through some of them to give you an idea of how Ildefons Cerdà developed his plan. For fans of art and architecture, this experience is the total package! You will leave the tour an expert of Modernist art with a deep understanding of Barcelona as a city!
