This tour is a combination of two of our tours: The Gaudi - Sagrada Familia Tour and The Montjuic & Panoramic Tour. In the afternoon departure the order varies, although we visit the same places, we start from Montjuic and finish at the Sagrada Familia.
Passeig de Gracia, Being one of the most important avenues both in Barcelona and Catalonia, the street links Plaza 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 Batllo and Casa Mila (also La Pedrera). A delight to the eye!
The jewel in the crown of Gaudi's works, the Sagrada Familia basilica 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.
Gaudi wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed 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, which started construction in 1882.
Next, we will embark on the Montjuic portion of the tour. First we will visit the waterfront, which is a living example of how the very old can be successfully combined with the very new: Old Port, Columbus Monument, World Trade Center.
Next we will visit the Montjuic Hill, with its parks, art galleries, museums, and the 1992 "Olympic Ring", of sports stadiums also provides spectacular views over the city. Mirador de l'Alcalde (the Mayor's Lookout) stop. We will visit the charming Poble Espanyol and have free time for lunch there.
