During this in-depth architecture tour you visit not only Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces in town: Park Güell, the Sagrada Família basilica, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, but also other meaningful jewels built in town by the master: Palau Güell, Casa Calvet and Casa Vicens.
We start with Palau Güell, visiting this imposing work: Gaudí’s sponsor residential palace. A world of luxury crowned by a colourful set of chimney stacks on the rooftop.
Casa Calvet, another early project from 1899. Probably the master’s most classical façade and building, still privately owned. No access allowed to visitors.
In Casa Batlló we visit the building: a delight for anyone, given all delicate details and the astonishing unique decoration. On the rooftop, dozens of colourful chimney stacks will welcome us disguised as big, cheerful clown hats.
Casa Milà: we tour this gorgeous stone building with a striking visual impact. Its façade, imitating ocean waves, shows scattered scrap metal seaweeds as balcony railings and the roof is topped by a set of aw-inspiring warrior-like chimney stacks.
Casa Vicens is a charming and well restored residential house: the first one ever built in town by the master. The visit to this little architectural jewel, full of beautiful corners, becomes a discovery of the good taste and refinement of those times.
Park Güell: 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 of this magic setting.
The Sagrada Família basilica: Gaudí’s masterpiece. We will visit this magnificent, monumental basilica, still in construction since 1882. Once inside the temple, its inner structural complexity and amazing decoration will probably let you speechless.
