Modernist Architecture in Barcelona: Half-Day Tour
Barcelona hosts a treasure trove of Modernist and Art Nouveau delights. From Gaudi to Domenich i Muntaner, this 3-hour tour will take you to great achievements, like Sagrada Familia, that have been imagined by some of history’s most celebrated architects.
Discover the fascinating history and secrets of Spanish Modernism, the roots of Art Nouveau, in the city with its most fantastic collection of examples, Barcelona.
Before and after the turn of the 20th-Century, the city erected many Modernist buildings, designed by their architects to bring nature back into a newly industrialized Barcelona. The majority of them can be found within walking distance from each other while the others are further afoot but well worth seeing.
Some of the featured sites you’ll visit are Gaudi’s Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, and La Pedrera, as well as many lesser known, yet equally fascinating, architectural treasures, such as the Palau de la Musica Catalana, and Hospital de Santa Pau. You’ll tour at a casual pace, with plenty of time to explore, without feeling rushed to move on, stopping along the way to lunch on the local delicacies.
Every tour is tailor-made, taking into account your own interests and previous experiences in the city. Should there be a particular building you would like to see then let us know. Ask us about organizing entry in advance so you can avoid waiting in line!
