Begin your beautiful Barcelona architecture walking tour at the Casa Lleó i Morera on the scenic Passeig de Gracia. It’s famous for its high concentration of art nouveau and modernist buildings designed by architects like Gaudi, Montagner, Puig i Cadafalch, and others. Your guide will focus on the best of these, including Casa Milá, Casa Batlió, Casa Amatller, and Casa Lleó Morera.
We’ll stroll along Avinguda Gaudí to La Sagrada Familia, the symbol of Barcelona and the most famous church designed by Antonio Gaudi. 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.
You’ll even enter the modernist building, Casa Amatller, to learn about the Barcelona chocolate-making process that began in 1797. You can even try a taste!
Complete 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!
You’ll now realize that whether the buildings are used for healthcare, a private home or house of worship, the attention to detail and graceful design always shine through. This is what makes Barcelona so beautiful!
