Tour Details

The beautiful city of Barcelona is comprised of a number of unique districts, and on this Barcelona walking tour, you will explore the fascinating Eixample district, revered for its 19th and early 20th century modernist buildings. Antoni Gaudi, Puig i Cadafalch, Domanech i Montaner, and Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia are among the many notable architects who contributed to this extraordinary Art Nouveau style.

After meeting your English-speaking guide at the tour office, you will head over to the Quadrat d'Or heritage district which is a true architectural showcase. Your Barcelona Art Nouveau tour cannot be complete without exploring the amazing modernist buildings designed by Antoni Gaudi. See the iconic apartment block Casa Mila, or La Pedrera, which is regarded for its revolutionary architectural style with its undulating walls and irregular floor plans. Also see the world-renowned Casa Batllo, which is considered the embodiment of the Art Nouveau style. You will be astounded by the arched roof and wave-like walls of this magnificent structure.

Strolling through this astonishing district, you will also pass Cadafalch's Casa Amatller, one of Barcelona's most ornate buildings. You will also see Domanech I Montaner's Art Nouveau masterpiece Casa Albert Lleo Morera. You'll also visit the beautiful Museu del Modernisme de Barcelona, which will help you better understand the age of splendor of this artistic trend in Catalonia through an illustrative exhibit. After the incredible sightseeing on this tour of Barcelona, you will have a new appreciation for modernist architecture.

This female guide was over the top. As an educator she had a tempo for covering ground and information that would be difficult to surpass. Bravissimo
