Our Gaudi Tour will show us the Modernist Barcelona and the Gaudi Barcelona.   We will begin at the Cathedral after a briefing about our electric bicycles and the city traffic rules.   Our first stop will be at the Ciutadella water fountain  to see the collaboration of Gaudí in the ornamental waterfall, one of his first works in the city.   We will continue to the Sagrada Familia, the main work of Antoni Gaudi. We will go into the most emblematic sights of the city, the Passeig de Gracia, where we will be able to see two of the most famous works of Gaudi: La casa Batllo and La casa Mila.   To finish with our tour we will admire the first works of Gaudi, el Palau Guell and Plaza Reial.

Itinerary

The Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona’s urban “green lung”, is no ordinary park. In 1869, the demolition of the military citadel, built a century earlier by Philip V, was highly significant for a boom Barcelona with its sights firmly set on the 1888 Universal Exhibition! In 1888 Barcelona hosted the Universal Exhibition. The Arc de Triomf was built as the gateway to the fair which was held in the Parc de la Ciutadella. The monument is classical in shape and proportions and features ground-breaking sculptural and decorative finishes replete with symbolism. It has become one of the city’s iconic landmarks! Located in the centre of Barcelona, the Basílica de la Sagrada Família has become one of the most iconic landmarks of Barcelona, despite remaining unfinished at the time of Gaudí’s death, Sagrada Familia! In the central Barcelona’s Passeig de Gràcia, we find the Casa Milà or La Pedrera, a blend of fantasy and functionality make this architectural landmark a must-see visitor attraction. This is the culmination of Antoni Gaudí’s career, designed as a modernista building tailored to the new social needs, without forgetting his main source of inspiration: Nature and organic forms! The colour and fantasy of the Casa Batlló captivates passersby on the Passeig de Gràcia. Standing halfway up this elegant boulevard and in a strongly contrasting style to the neighbouring houses, the Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera, Gaudí’s building reveals the splendour of an architect who was able to work on this project with total creative freedom, Antoni Gaudí. Plaça Catalunya the heart of Barcelona, just next to La Rambla the perfect spot to see how Barcelona lives a normal day, This amazing building, the Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch, a contemporary of Gaudí, which combines the Neo-Gothic style with a ridged façade inspired by houses in the Netherlands, is part of the block known as the “mansana de la discòrdia” of Barcelona. The architect worked with some of the finest artists and craftsmen in Barcelona of the modersnista times, headed by the sculptors Eusebi Arnau and Alfons Jujol. The Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia watches impassively the passing of time in a constantly moving and changing Barcelona. The Cathedral also reflects the different generations who have left their imprint and the blend of architectural styles in this predominantly Gothic building which needs to be viewed inside in order to fully understand its splendour.

5 out of 5 stars
we have booked the Gaudi Tour and went with Xabi. Fortunatly my wife and me where the only one´s so that we had the chance to go our own pace and route. Xabi was extremly enthusiastic, he even spoke german language. He is a great Gaudi fan and explained things really well. I would give this tour 10 of 10 points. We difinitly will book another tour when coming back ...
