The Gaudí Sites and The Eixample

 

IncludeTato GrossoBatllos: Casa Batlló, Pedrera, Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell (4 hours)

Walk through the Eixample area to savor the brilliance of the architecture of Antoni Gaudí and other Modernist architects. Marvel at the awesome unfinished Sagrada Familia church. Stroll through whimsical Parc Güell and let your imagination carry you away.

 Suggestion: Take a picnic to the park

Photo: Detail on the facade of Casa Batlló: Broken pieces of colorful tiles form a mosaic. This is a trait of Modernist architecture and is all over the city. It's called "trencadis".

"Hi Sandra,

We just got back a few days ago from the rest of our trip.  We look back with very fond memories about you and the wonderful arrangements you made for us while we were in Barcelona.  Not only did you show us exactly what we had requested and made it so interesting, but you were very kind to help us figure out how to go around on our own (which I don't think most guides would have bothered with)  You can rest assured if anyone asks me what to do and see in Barcelona, I will tell them I have just the person they need in Barcelona.   Sincerely,  Maureen & Herman Roszler  Los Angeles California (February 17th 2009)"
