We will pick you up at your accommodation and take you by private transport on a journey to experience the different faces of Barcelona. During the tour, our expert guide will share fascinating stories about the city’s one-of-a-kind architecture, culture and history.
Our adventure will begin in Plaça Catalunya, Barcelona’s central square. The plaza connects to the avenue Passeig de Grácia, which features some of the best examples of Catalan architecture. Take a moment to admire the striking façades of private Modernist buildings, among them Gaudí´s famous La Pedrera. Next, we will arrive at the “Illa Discordia Barcelona” (Barcelona’s “Block of Discord”), which not only includes Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, but also the Casa Lleó - Morera and Casa Ametller.
We will follow in the footsteps of Gaudí as we explore l’Eixample next. This district was designed in the 19th century by urban planner Ildefons Cerdà. It became an extension of the Old Town, as part of an orderly expansion strategy. After visiting the majestic Hospital de Sant Pau, we will continue to Gaudí’s masterpiece La Sagrada Familia. You will see the different parts of the building and the many examples of religious symbolism hidden in its unique façades. You are sure to be captivated by Gaudi’s incredible architectural style: the peculiar shape of the columns, ceilings, walls and its organic architecture.
After some time at the Sagrada Familia, we will continue towards the Mediterranean Sea. Along the way, our group will pass by the Plaza de Toros Monumental and contemporary Agbar Tower, the newest reference point for Barcelona´s stunning skyline. We will reach breezy Bogatell beach, and walk down along the coast through Port Vell (the Old Port). As we continue along the port, we will pass the Gothic Drassanes and Columbus Monument, walking down the iconic La Rambla and ending up at the brand-new World Trade Center.
From here, we’ll head to Montjuïc Mountain, where lies the Mirador de l'Alcalde, a beautiful terrace with wonderful views of Barcelona’s iconic skyline.
The Mountain of Montjuïc was once the main venue of the 1992 Olympics. Nowadays, you can still admire the Olympic Stadium, which was originally built in 1929 and was later remodeled. We will also come across examples of urbanism and architecture designed specially for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition. These include Plaça Espanya, which was inspired in St. Peter's Square in the Vatican. Other beautiful highlights of this area are The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, the Mies Van der Rohe pavilion and The National Palace.
Finally, we will descend from the mountain to the center of the Old Town, where we’ll finish the day with a relaxed walking tour through the charismatic corners of the Gothic Quarter. Discover the hidden imprints left by the Roman and medieval city. After stopping at the charming Cathedral Square to admire the magnificent Gothic Cathedral with its Gothic revival façade, we will travel back in time to the origins of Barcelona in Plaça Sant Jaume, where the old forum was located. The plaza is now home to Barcelona’s City Hall.
