What to expect

Departing by bus from Plaza Catalunya with an expert guide. Discover the magical and elegant Passeig de Gràcia. Get access to Gaudi’s cathedral with an expert local guide who’ll tell you all about its history and construction. You’ll also see:

  • The tiled pavements and modernist lampposts of Passeig de Gràcia
  • Drive past Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera
  • Casa Batlló (guided visit)
  • Sagrada Familia (guided visit)
  • You can choose to stay in the Cathedral for as long as you like or take our coach back to the city center

We will explain what makes these buildings extraordinary: the detail, the symbols, the structural secrets, the technical innovation, and give you a guided tour of Casa Batlló and the Sagrada Família.

Gaudí's master work, the Sagrada Família, is the last on the tour so you can stay and explore it as long as you like, return in the coach to the city centre, or continue on "The Montjuic & Panoramic Tour".

Passeig de Gràcia

Being one of the most important avenues both in Barcelona and Catalonia, the street links Plaça Catalunya and the district of Gracia. Walking all down the street you'll find plenty of luxury shops and architectural details dating from the XIX century barcelonian bourgeoisie. Within those elements we can find Gaudi's works Casa Batlló and Casa Milà (La Pedrera). A delight to the eye!

Casa Batlló guided tour

Casa Batlló, one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces, is not just a building but an artistic legend; a calm sea is reflected by an outstanding façade and hidden behind it we can find a world of architectural details and other attractive elements.

This apartments building enchants visitors with its remarkable design and the vast repertoire of visual solutions employed. In every corner, with the help of our guide you will discover something surprising, details full of life that will fascinate everyone who can appreciate imaginativeness.

The tour includes a visit to the legendary Noble Floor (it used to be the home of the Batlló family), the Attic (it was used by the residents as stores and laundry room), the Rooftops and Chimneys which present the well-known spine of the multicoloured dragon killed by St Georges. As well as the magnificent lobby, main staircase and light well (it used to be the main staircase for the rest of the neighbours).

The Magical World of Casa Batlló will stir your imagination with the metaphors and representation of nature, in particular the sea, which will inspire you and stimulate your senses and emotions. An explosion of colours and forms, splendid examples of the decorative arts of the epoch, an immersion in modernity, enigmatic forms, the interpretation of a dream, a Mediterranean marvel, a place of innovation and new concepts, a place for reflecting on the capabilities of art and design. Casa Batlló is all this and more. Casa Batlló was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2005.

Sagrada Família 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 wanted the temple to be financed voluntarily 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.

You can choose to stay in the Cathedral for as long as you like or take our coach back to the city center
