Park Güell: enjoying a stroll trough this magical gaudinian scenery is a pleasant experience for all kinds of visitors. Built between 1900 and 1914 as a luxurious gated community, this 30 acre green patch is where Gaudí’s colourful fantasy is at its best, surprising you in every corner.
The Sagrada Família basilica: Gaudí’s masterpiece. We will visit this magnificent, monumental temple that’s still in construction since 1882. Given its giant size, we approach it from a distant perspective before going inside. Its inner structural complexity and amazing decoration will probably let you speechless. In the small museum we’ll find some of Gaudí’s most creative and advanced workshop tools: an evidence of the very first steps into 3D construction projects ever to appear worldwide.
Casa Batlló, refurbished in 1905 by the architect A. Gaudí, shows a splendid, undulated colourful façade recalling the watery surface of a lake. The gradually evolving color tiles of the rooftop imitate the back of a mighty dragon… or a fish. We visit the Batlló’s apartment: a delight for anyone, given all delicate details and the astonishing unique decoration. Once on the roof, dozens of colourful chimney stacks will welcome us disguised as big, cheerful clown hats.
Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera (Catalan for the stone quarry), is a most peculiar urban apartment block. Constructed from 1906 to 1912, this gorgeous stone building provokes a striking visual impact: its façade, imitating 7 ocean waves, has scattered scrap metal seaweeds as balcony railings and the roof is crowned by a set of aw-inspiring warrior-like chimney stacks. After visiting the rooftop and attic, we see one of the apartments, dressed like a century ago.
