What to expect

During this tour you will visit the most emblematic works made by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, with no queues!

During the first part of the tour, you will visit Passeig de Gràcia street, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà (La Pedrera). Then you will have three hours of free time for lunch and go by yourself to the tour operator office in Sagrada Familia. During the second part of the tour, you will visit Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.

Walk to one of the most popular streets in Barcelona, Passeig de Gràcia, where apart from prestigious brands shops you can find modernists buildings. At the beginning of the XIX century Passeig the Gracia became the main residential area for the bourgeoisie, who were main commitments of some important modernist architects such as: Gauí, Puig i Cadafalch, Domènech i Montaner or Sagnier. During the tour we will visit two great examples of domestic architecture from Antoni Gaudí. The explanations will be always put in context with the history of Barcelona and in parallel to other works from important modernist architects.

  • Casa Batlló

Gaudí projected the refurbishment of a previous existing building of the architect Emilio Sala Cortés. The building was bought by the business man Josep Batlló, who owned several textile factories in Barcelona. At the time Gaudí was an important architect working in several projects at the same time: The Expiatory Temple of la Sagrada Familia, Torre Bellesguard, Park Güell and the restoration of the Santa Maria Cathedral in Palma de Mallorca. Batlló was so impressive with the Gaudi’s work that he recommended the architect to his friend, Pere Milá.

Later you will be able to visit Casa Milà, commonly known as la Pedera. The building is located in Passeig de Gracia street chamfer with Provença Street, in the middle of the Eixample. During the industrial growing when the bourgeoisie became the privilege statement, Gaudí was asked to build a house for the Milà family. Pere Milà i Camps was a rich business man who inherited the fortune made by his father from the textile industry. The Milà Project consisted in a flats building where the first floor would be the residence of the Milà family while the other floors would be divided into several apartments for renting. The construction was delayed several times because the building was supposed to be more high and wide than the dimensions fixed by the municipal government. During the guided tour you will visit the two courtyards, the three last floors (rooftop, attic and one apartment) and the temporal exhibition (the availability of this part is subject to the exhibition calendar).

At the end of the visit you will be able to remain in the building as long as you wish. At this point, you will have three hours of free time for lunch and go by yourself to the tour operator office in the 311 Sardenya street, where you will have to check-in again. From la Pedrera you can reach our office walking though the Provença Street. The way will take you 30 minutes. Also you can take the L5 blue line of the metro from Diagonal to Sagrada Familia.

Considered the Gaudi’s masterpiece, despite the construction of the church stared on the 1882 is still unfinished. We will visit its astonishing interior rich in symbolism, and with our guide you will discover how Gaudí got most of his inspiration from nature, considered by the architect the God’s masterpiece.

The original project was meant to be an urbanization, ordered by the catalan entrepreneur Eusebi Güell, it was finally inaugurated as a public park in 1926. In this work Gaudí displayed all his creative talent with a naturalistic and organic style with the aim to achieve a perfect integration of architecture and nature.
