Sagrada Familia

How does it take nearly 150 years to build a church with today’s modern technology? When you design one as intricate, precise and magnificent as Gaudi did with the Sagrada Familia, it becomes completely understandable. The church is extremely complex, with 18 spires ascending in height representing the Virgin Mary, the four evangelists, the twelve apostles, with the tallest representing Jesus Christ. Once the tallest spire is completed, the Sagrada Familia will be the tallest church in the world. Your guide will go in-depth describing the interior, exterior and beyond of Gaudi’s still unfinished masterpiece.

Casa Batlló

Next your guide will continue the journey into the brilliant and artistic mind of Antoni Gaudí. The house-turned-museum Casa Batllo is the ultimate representation of Gaudi’s unique style. Called the “House of Bones, Gaudi’s use of uneven lines creates the appearance of a skeletal form. Learn about the incredible and diverse history of the building, originally built for the wealthy Batllo family and later served as an insurance office.View the roof of Casa Batllo, which is called the “back of the dragon” with its curvy foundation and colorful tiles.

Casa Milà and Casa Vicens

Down the Passeig de Gracia from Casa Batlló, in one of Barcelona’s poshest neighborhoods is Casa Mila. Your guide will explain why this Gaudi house has earned the nickname “La Pedrera” (stone quarry). One of the final works designed by Gaudi,, it is essential to see the evolution from Casa Vicens, Gaudi’s first designed house built in 1884 to Casa Mila, which was finished nearly 30 years later. Casa Vicens will be the finalhome on the tour, before “visiting” Parc Guell.

Parc Guell

For Gaudi, Parc Guell was meant to be much more than a park. It was to be a luxury neighborhood complete with all of the best technologies, in perfect congruence with naturalist principles. The symbolism of Gaudi’s work with Parc Guell verges on conspiracy. Your guide will relate the connections to Catalan politics, Catholicism, Mythology and even maybe Freemasonry. Today the park boasts the best views of Barcelona from the iconic Dragon Stairway.

Interesting tour focused on Gaudi's buildings in Barcelona

This tour does pretty much what the website listing suggests - it focuses on Gaudi's buildings in Barcelona. There are beautiful photos and videos of the buildings to illustrate the tour. For those that don't know too much about Barcelona or about Gaudi, like me, don't expect much background information on this tour. The buildings were beautiful and my guide Montse clearly knows a lot about them. I enjoyed this tour, but I also wish I had done some background reading on Gaudi and Barcelona before taking it.
