What to expect

Departing by bus from Plaza Catalunya with an expert guide, you'll discover the magical and elegant Passeig de Gràcia. Get access to Gaudí's cathedral and Casa Batlló with an expert local guide who'll tell you all about its history and construction.

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

Go inside and explore Casa Batlló, one of Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces, which is not only a building but a true artistic landmark; a calm sea is reflected by an outstanding façade and hidden behind it you'll be able to find a world of architectural details and other attractive elements.

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 multicolored dragon killed by St George. The tour also includes the magnificent lobby, the main staircase and light well (it used to be the main staircase for the rest of the neighbors).

The jewel in the crown of Gaudí's works is the Sagrada Familia. It 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 this 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
