Complete Gaudí Walking Tour
The name Gaudí is almost synonymous with Barcelona. The city's favorite architect has come to embody the style and joie de vivre of a city deeply rooted in its natural surroundings. This is Barcelona at its vibrant, playful best.
On this complete walking tour of Gaudí's work, we visit three of his residential works, including one unknown to most visitors. We'll skip long lines to wander the beautiful Park Güell, and we'll embark on a thorough exploration of Gaudí's greatest work and final resting place, La Sagrada Família.
Your tour starts with first entrance to Casa Batlló, arguably Gaudí's most impressive residential property (and certainly his most-visited). A sure highlight is the roof, designed to resemble the scales of a dragon - the great emblem of Barcelona. Next, we'll visit the exterior of Casa Mila, known locally as La Pedrera, or The Stone Quarry. The facade of Casa Vincens is a totally different experience. One of Gaudí's earliest works, it is colourful and flamboyant in the over-the-top manner of an architect still developing his own style and vernacular. Somewhere in the middle of these styles is Park Guell. Since this became a ticketed site a few years ago, entrance lines have become extremely long - so it's a good thing you have skip-the-line access.
Your tour ends inside the Sagrada Família. It can be hard to know where to look on your first visit to La Sagrada Família, so it's lucky you have a Gaudí expert on hand to guide your experience. You'll spend a full hour exploring the church itself, from its detailed façade to the stained glass windows inside. According to his wishes, Gaudí was buried under the church after his death (the tragic story of which you will hardly believe). Your tour also includes pre-reserved access to ascend one of the church towers for incredible views over Barcelona and beyond.
With private transport between sites and skip the line access at multiple Gaudí sites, you'll cover more ground than would be possible in a whole day on your own.
