Begin your Barcelona architecture walking tour at the Sant Pau Recinte Modernista, designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the fathers of Catalan modernism. You’ll marvel at this 27-building complex — the largest Art Nouveau site in the world, which once housed one of the most important hospitals in Barcelona, still in use right up to the late 1990s!
We’ll stroll along Avinguda Gaudí to La Sagrada Familia, the symbol of Barcelona and the most famous church designed by Antonio Gaudí. Your tour guide will tell you all the secrets of the symbols embedded in the two facades as you view the lovely Sagrada Familia from all angles.
Continue your beautiful Barcelona architecture walking tour in the Eixample neighborhood. You’ll admire beautiful houses such as Casa Macaya and Casa de les Punxes.
