Tour Description

It only takes that first Gaudí visit to fall under the spell of this historical icon’s impressive body of true masterpieces. His instantly recognizable and wildly imaginative architecture is so distinctive that you can’t help but be drawn to and hypnotized by his work. Discover Gaudí’s depth, talent, and inspiration on this uniquely designed tour that brings you to all four of Gaudí’s most important architectural works in a single day!

Our tour begins at Casa Batlló, a tile-adorned facade standing tall and colourful on Barcelona’s opulent Passeig de Gràcia. This residence-turned-museum features countless notable architectural gems, such as the grand wooden staircase where we first enter the home, built to look like the undulating spine of a giant beast. Gaudí’s distaste for straight lines is particularly evident here; you’ll be hard-pressed to find a single one! Your guide will lead you through the various points of interest on each floor before the tour culminates on the building’s famous roof terrace. Enjoy a panoramic view of downtown Barcelona while marvelling at Gaudí’s vibrant and mythical-looking chimneys.

Just when you think you know Gaudí, our tour continues with a guided walk-through of the Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera (The Quarry), just a few blocks away. Completed in 1910, this spectacular house used to belong to Milà family, but it didn’t open to the public until 1987. We head first to the rooftop, with its legendary knight-shaped chimney peaks and tile-clad pinnacles, before exploring the original living quarters of this pristine historical landmark. Still filled with its original possessions from the early 1900s — from furniture and artwork to sewing machines and children’s toys – Casa Milà is truly a step back in time.

At this point we’ll take a break affording you free time to grab a quick lunch before the second part of your tour.

The afternoon starts with the Sagrada Família, Gaudí’s most ambitious project and the most famous monument in the whole of Spain. Started in 1882, the church is still under construction after more than 100 years of tireless work. Our guide will share tales of Gaudí’s love affair with his final work, how he considered the project his personal holy mission, and the great personal sacrifices he made to ensure its completion. Sadly, he would not live to see it finished. Such was the complexity of the design that despite taking on the project at 31 years of age, Gaudí only lived to see the completion of one facade, one tower, the apse, and the crypt.

After having marvelled at this unique monument, we catch our private, air-conditioned bus transfer to Park Güell; another of Guadí’s most renowned works. This expansive park was built on the slopes of the Carmel Hill for the Güell family between 1900 and 1914. As in our previous stops, the long lines here are of no concern, as our tickets are pre-booked allowing us immediate access to the most famous and impressive part of the park, the “monumental zone”.

The architectural design of Park Güell is perhaps the truest testament to Gaudí's passion for natural forms. The wave-like walls of stone and cement seem to grow up from the ground, just like the plants that surround them, and the vibrant colors of his signature “trencadís” tile mosaics cover the walls, ceilings, and benches. Spend your free time exploring the grounds and getting a must-have photo with the famous lizard "El Drac" before your transfer back to city center. 

Discover the life and works of the man who truly shaped the face of Barcelona and modernist architecture on this one-of-a-kind Skip the Line tour: Gaudí in One Day Tour including the Sagrada Família, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and Park Güell.
