DescriptionDeepen your knowledge of Barcelona’s world-famous architecture on this walking tour. Accompanied by a local guide, uncover all there is to know about the city’s most famous buildings, from the Sagrada Família to the Art Nouveau wonders of Passeig de Gràcia. Choose from a private or group tour. Begin your tour at the Sant Pau Recinte Modernista, a former hospital that was designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the fathers of Catalan Modernism. Marvel at this huge complex, which consists of 27 buildings and is the largest Art Nouveau site in the world. Next, stroll along Avinguda Gaudí to the Sagrada Família, the symbol of Barcelona and the most famous building designed by Antonio Gaudí. Your tour guide will tell you all the secrets of the symbols embedded in the two facades as you view the lovely Sagrada Família from all angles. Continue along the scenic Passeig de Gràcia, famous for its Art Nouveau and modernist buildings designed by architects like Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner, and Puig i Cadafalch. Your guide will focus on the best of these, including Casa Milá, Casa Batlló, and Casa Lleó Morera. Next, take a look at one of the most unique modernist buildings, the Casa Amatller and learn all about the Barcelona chocolate-making process that began in 1797. Treat yourself to a taste of the delicious selection of Amatller chocolates in the chocolate shop (not included). End your Barcelona walking tour at the Casa Lleó i Morera, another masterpiece designed by Domènech i Montaner. Now occupied by luxury fashion store Loewe, the building is one of Barcelona’s best-preserved modernist buildings and features impressive stained glass, mosaics, sculptures, and woodwork. At the end of the tour you will understand how these incredible buildings – whether used for healthcare, housing, or worship – include an attention to detail and graceful design that always shine through. They are what make Barcelona so special.
