SUCH A DELIGHT
"We took a Gaudi private tour and it was lovely! Tati was very well informed, vivacious, fun and awesome guide. She not only walked us through Gaudi's life and works but also was a delight to talk to on other topics."Read on Trip Advisor
PRIVATE GAUDI TOUR
"This was an excellent way to see Gaudi's works with a family - we are three generations and with diverse interests. Ann-Marie was engaging, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. We booked this as a private tour with the specific request that the tour be tapered to our diverse group. And it was exactly that and more."Read on Trip Advisor

How to get to the meeting point
Nearest metro stop: Liceu (L3). Take the the exit named “Sortida: Liceu” and walk down La Rambla towards the sea (the main Opera House will be on your right). After 2 minutes you will see a Kentucky Fried Chicken on your left. Take the next left into the square (Plaça Reial).
How to find the guide
Our friendly guide will be waiting by the fountain in the middle of the square wearing a bright green vest and a name tag.
It has been a traditional meeting place in Barcelona since it was built in the XIX century. But this is not the only reason why our tour starts here. A young Gaudí has left some illuminating work in the square.
The first project for Gaudí’s patron and his first masterpiece. Situated in the midst of the old city, Palau Güell shines out amongst the surrounding buildings. Find out about Gaudí’s beginnings as an architect and his unusual approach to the design of the house.
Block of Discord
Three architects compete for the most striking building in the block. Known as “La Manzana de la Discordia” (Block of Discord) by local Barcelonans, we let you decide which one is your favourite of these architectural masterpieces.
It has been called “a fairytale in stone” and “the house of yawns”. Today, nobody doubts that Casa Batlló is the architect’s most magical building. From knights in shining armour to traditional festivals, all is included in Gaudí’s imagination.
Eixample & Passeig de Gràcia
Designed by Idelfons Cerdà in the middle of the 19th century, the Eixample was the new playground for the bourgeoisie of the time. Here you will find the modern shops and restaurants but also the great masterpieces of the Modernisme architecture.
Casa Milà / La Pedrera
Gaudí’s masterpiece. A raw sculpture carved and moulded into Passeig de Gràcia. Offensive at the time, abandoned to its destiny and recovered to its grandeur, Casa Milà was a very troubled commission that included not only fights and court cases but also a few subtle acts of vengeance by its creator.
The unfinished temple, Gaudí’s obsession and the symbol of a city. The Sagrada Familia is like a storybook that is missing many pages. Find out about the temple’s past, present and future and hear about the architect’s tragic end. Our tour finishes here with the hope that someday you’ll see Gaudí’s dream realised.
