Gaudi Tours in Barcelona

Looking to discover Barcelona Gaudi architecture and modernism? Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Casa Mila and Parque Guell  are amongst the most stunning architectural treasures you can see anywhere in the world.  Allow us to organise a group tour of the Barcelona of Gaudi and get to grips with the mystique and genius of the great modernist.

Below you’ll find details of personalised and private tours which offer a general view of the most notable Gaudi buildings. But the beauty and intricacy of Gaudi’s design is such that you could easily spend a few hours at any one of his remarkable sites.

Barcelona Gaudi streets offer a wide range of modes of transport for getting round the sites. Whereas walking will give you time to probe even the narrowest alleyways, using bicycles, e-bikes, segways and even a Vespa can be great fun. And our panoramic Gaudi bus tour will make sure you cover all of the sights in no time, in the luxury of your own private coach.

Who was Antoni Gaudi ?

Possibly Barcelona’s most beloved son, Antoni Gaudí was an architect whose work was influenced principally by nature.  Born in 1852 he was raised in a family of metalworkers, another important influence. He was to become the most celebrated of the so-called “modernist” designers. He died in 1926 when he was hit by a tram in 1926 on the streets of Barcelona. His most famous work La Sagrada Familia was unfinished when he died,  and remains unfinished today.  Gaudi developed his own style, always based on nature, using ironwork, mosaic and eschewing straight lines and “human” geometry.

“The straight line belongs to men, the curved one to God.”  Antoni Gaudi

Many of Gaudi’s designs used spirals based on sea animals, birds and plants, and often his vivid imagination produced delightful fantastic animals like iron dragons and lizards. He produced organic “standalone” structures, again using shapes form natures, which did not require internal or external supports or buttresses.  His vision and unique style is probably the single most dominant influence on the modern city of Barcelona.

Gaudi must-see sites include Park Güell, La Sagrada Familia  Basilica (now consecrated as a Cathedral – one of the world’s biggest), the amazing houses on Paseo de Gracia Casa Batlló and Casa Mila, the gothic styled  Episcopal Palace and Casa de los Botines, and the baroque Casa Calvet.  Gaudi died and extremely pious man, believing the nature that God created to be infinitely superior to anything any man could ever create, even Antoni Gaudi!
