Location

This tour is a combination of two of our tours: The Gaudí – Sagrada Familia Tour and The Montjuic & Panoramic Tour. 

Passeig de Gràcia. This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudí’s tiles for pavements and a myriad of grand buildings including two of Gaudí’s houses: Casa Batlló, and Casa Milà.

Sagrada Familia guided tour. The jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s works, the temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.

Gaudí wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.

Waterfront. Old Port: Separated from the Olympic port by long beaches and the old fisherman’s quarter, Barceloneta. The Old Port has been remodelled to extend the city centre down the Rambla into the harbour. Attractive and popular area with restaurants, shops, nightclubs and frequent open-air entertainment. Columbus Monument: built in his honour in 1888, it is at the foot of the famous Rambla. World Trade Centre: original imposing building by Henry N. Cobb whose aesthetic features are highlighted by the building being surrounded by water.

Montjuïc hill. Mirador de l’Alcalde (the Mayor’s Lookout) stop: This terrace is a balcony over the Mediterranean with spectacular views over the harbour and the whole city. The bus will stop here to let you walk around and get the best viewpoints.

Olympic Ring: Central sports facilities of the ’92 Olympic Games, the complex includes the Stadium, the St Jordi sports pavilion by architect Arata Isozaki, the INEF by architect Ricardo Bofill and the Calatrava Communications Tower.

Poble Espanyol guided tour - Spanish Village: Final place on the tour so people who so wish can stay for as long as they like. Built for the 1929 Exhibition, you can see replicas of streets, squares, monuments and buildings from around the country. It is an open air museum with many artists and craftsmen you can watch at work, synthesizing traditional crafts with modern design: glass, ceramics, jewellery, fabrics etc. There are also many bars and restaurants, you will have about 45 minutes to wonder around and have lunch.
