What to expect

Begin this tour in Plaça Catalonia the main square in the center of the city, and head for the avenue with the most distinctive Catalan architecture, Passeig de Gràcia. Listen as your guide points out details on the most striking facades of the street's private modernist-style buildings, most notably La Pedrera by the famed Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí. Nearby, the so-called ‘apple of discord’ block, boasts more wonderful examples of modernist houses, including Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, Lluís Domènech i Montaner's Casa Lleó-Morera, and Josep Puig i Cadafalch's Casa Ametller.

Further on, you'll move to Gràcia district to visit Park Güell, situated on a hill offering spectacular views of Barcelona. Stroll through the park to better understand the brilliant art of Gaudí. After the park, continue to the district of Eixample by private vehicle. Drive along its streets to the hidden modernist gem of Hospital de Sant Pau and Gaudí’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. Listen as your guide explains the history of the unfinished church and offers the keys to understanding its mystical symbolism.

Head to the Mediterranean sea, passing by Plaza de Toros and the Agbar Tower. Once you reach Bogatell beach, you'll cross the waterfront by Port Vell, the Gothic Drassanes, and the monument to Columbus, toward the World Trade Center. From the coastline, climb the Montjuïc mountain. At the top, enjoy the Mirador de l'Alcalde, a terrace that offers spectacular views over the Barcelona skyline.

Discover some buildings related to the 1992 Olympic Games, including Palau Sant Jordi sporting arena, designed by Arata Isozaki, and perhaps make a wish at the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc. From there, head to the center of the Old Town. Finish the day with a relaxed walking tour through the charming corners of the Gothic Quarter, discovering the imprints of the city's Roman and medieval history. Admire the Gothic façade of Barcelona Cathedral and travel back in time to the origins of the city at Plaça Sant Jaume, where the City Hall is located today. Conclude your tour back at your accommodation, or any other central location you might prefer.
