This city tour focuses on the Old City, Antoni Gaudí’s masterworks and the Picasso Museum, visiting the buildings and venues also inside.
The Old City is where 2000 years of Catalan history accumulate in an area called Barri Gòtic or Gothic quarter. This includes a walk through the Roman walls and towers, the Call or medieval Jewish quarter, the Gothic cathedral, the Palau de la Música Catalana, the Boqueria food market hall (not on Sundays) and the lively Rambla boulevard, with flower stalls since a couple of centuries. The tour will visit Gaudí’s incredible Palau Güell and the Quatre Gats café, where Picasso held his first individual exhibit at the age of 18.
The oldest official Picasso Museum in the world can be found in the Old City, where the young painter grew up and learned to paint. Discover two jewels in the Museum: the juvenile works collection and the Meninas Collection, both nowhere else to be found.
Park Güell: we’ll stroll trough this magical gaudinian scenery, a pleasant experience for all kinds of visitors. The Sagrada Família basilica: Gaudí’s masterpiece. We can visit the magnificent monumental temple (inside). At the end we also go inside Casa Milà and Casa Batlló by the architect A. Gaudí, with splendid façades and rooftops.
