Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia Tour

There is a reason the Sagrada Familia Cathedral has become the most visited attraction in Spain. Your Gaudi architecture tour begins with a visit to the astonishing interior of this church, designed in a Latin cross plan with five aisles, extremely rich in ornamentation and symbolism. This breathtaking cathedral combines architecture, nature, and religion for a one-of-a-kind design that features spectacular vaults reaching seventy meters high. Experience the historical and cultural significance of this masterpiece while touring the Sagrada Familia Museum and learning about the man behind the work, Antoni Gaudi.

Continue your tour at the Parc Guell, a large garden park in which Gaudi strove to achieve the perfect integration of architectural elements in nature. Sitting on a hillside, the construction takes in the geography in a series of steps and plazas. Envisioned as a planned community area, the project was never finished. UNESCO has declared Parc Guell an artistic monument and a human heritage site. Although there is not time to see the entire park, the most important sites are seen.

Next, head to the Paseo de Gracia to drive past two of Gaudi's beautifully strange residential buildings, including Casa Batllo, once a private home, and La Pedrera, a very unique apartment building.

Your Barcelona tour concludes near the Picasso Museum, giving you the option to continue exploring classic art or to strike out on your own in Barcelona. Don't miss some of history's most influential art and architecture when your visit Barcelona.

The Gaudi portion of the tour was a huge waste of time....boring end to an otherwise uplifting visit to the Sagrada Familia, which was a spectacular structure, and we had a very knowledgeable guide.

We did this excursion in May 2019 and we loved it! The Sagrada Familia is an absolute must do while in Barcelona. It was absolutely breathtaking and our tour guide was awesome. She talked about each part of the Sagrada Familia and it's importance to the whole building as well as the future plans for the building. We then went to Parc Guell by bus which was beautiful and very nice to see. After that we went by 2 of the Gaudi houses in the main center area of Barcelona (short walk from Las Ramblas). We enjoyed this tour very much and would highly recommend it!
