Description

After beginning your tour at 8:30 AM, your walking tour through Passeig de Gracia will begin. During this tour, you will visit two great examples of domestic architecture from Antoni Gaudí. Your explanations will be put in context with the history of Barcelona, and in parallel to other works from important modernist architects. The first stop on your architecture tour will be to Casa Batlló. Gaudí projected the refurbishment of a previously existing building of the architect Emilio Sala Cortés. The building was bought by the businessman Josep Batlló, who owned several textile factories in Barcelona. Batlló was so impressed with Gaudi’s work that he recommended the architect to his friend, Pere Milá. On this tour, you will be able to visit Casa Milà, commonly known as La Pedrera. Casa Batlló is a great example of how Gaudí got his inspiration from nature using organic shapes that had been previously studied by him. 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 businessman who inherited the fortune made by his father from the textile industry. The Milà Project consisted of a building of flats 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 this 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.
