Today you have the choice of one of two tours. With so much to see, you can choose from experiencing modernism and Gaudi or alternatively you may want to explore the Gothic Quarter.
Modernism and Gaudi Tour (2.5 hours followed by entry to the Sagrada Familia)
With your private guide, you will be able to enjoy the most renowned modernist houses of the city, such as La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó i Morera. You’ll dive into the streets of the Eixample district and discover other less well-known but equally spectacular architectural gems like the Casa Calvet, Casa de les Punxes or Casa Macaya.
The tour continues to the Sagrada Familia, a church that has been under construction for over 100 years, where you will be able to marvel at the meticulously and richly decorated exterior which portrays many biblical scenes and emphasises Gaudi’s deeply religious nature. This is one of Barcelona’s most iconic landmarks and is likely to astound.
At the end of the tour you will be able to go inside the Sagrada Familia on your own and explore for as long as you want.
Gothic Quarter (3 hours)
Although Barcelona is well known for its modern architecture, it has a history that stretches back 2,000 years to the Roman period with its heartland in what is known as the Gothic Quarter.
Your private guide will pick you up from your hotel and you’ll head to the Arco de Triunfo and the Ciutadella Park, where you will find the Castle of the Three Dragons, the Zoo, the Catalonian Parliament and a spectacular waterfall, to name a few. This was the legacy of the 1888 Barcelona Universal Exposition.
Afterwards, you will visit the ancient Gothic Quarter where in every alleyway you walk through, you will discover something spectacular, like the Cathedral, the Roman walls or the Jewish Quarter.
