Barcelona & Sagrada Familia

This week we have launched a new special tour: Barcelona & Sagrada Familia. On this special four-hour tour, you will enjoy two of the most emblematic and most visited monuments in Barcelona led by an official tour guide that specializes in “Modernismo”.

This tour gives you the opportunity to experience the splendor of “Modernismo”, an artistic movement, where architectural and natural elements come together to compose a magic visual symphony.

Sagrada Famila Antoni Gaudi 1883 (The Sacred Family)

This is the most recognizable religious building in the world. The scaffolding and giant cranes now seem to be a permanent fixture of this construction site, whose date of completion is estimated for 2026.

The basilica, which resembles a giant forest from the inside, can only have been designed by a genius: Antoni Gaudi.

Visiting the Sagrada Familia grants the individual the opportunity to experience an architectural instrument of sound and light that is one of a kind. With more than 4.5 million tourists a year a visit to this monument is fundamental to the understanding of Gaudi’s work.

Park Güell. Antoni Gaudi 1900-1914 

Eusebi Güell, developer, patron and fervent admirer of Gaudi, wanted to make a private enclave for the privileged class outside the city, a paradise, a garden city. But the project failed, and the site became a park where there is not a single straight line and the boundary between the man-made and the natural is not clearly defined.

The Park Güell is the most visited public space in the city and we are sure the design will make an impact on the senses.

Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. Lluis Domènech i Montaner 1902-1930

This Modernista area or enclosure, was designed by Lluis Domènech i Montaner, one of the main advocates of Catalan Modernism. It was declared a UNESCO site in 1997. It is a

Project of grand scope, with a main entrance building, twenty-seven separate pavilions all connected by a series of tunnels.

The tour of the main building presents the visitor with spectacular colorful spaces, tile details, sculptures and mosaics. The tour continues into the garden areas and the connecting tunnels; an experience that immerses you in the magic of Modernism unique to Barcelona.
