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.

Fantasic tour of Sagrada Famillia
September 25, 2022
We took this tour on 8/27/2022. This tour of this magnificent building was fantasic. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The information was very informative and he took his time to explain everything. There was nothing that we missed of this greta church. This is a tour that you must take with Shore Excursions. Don't waste you time with other tour companies.

Insider information

The thing I love about tours like this is that you get to see things you would normally miss if you just went to La Sagrada Familia on your own. The tour guide - who spoke English quite well - took her time to show us various aspects of the cathedral that really enhanced seeing this bucket list item in person. We had a male tour guide for the Park Guell and he was equally informative and easy to understand. Great tour - highly recommend!

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.
