When coming to Barcelona more than 8 years ago we developed a passion for its architecture, rich history and the many legends that can be found all over the city. Turning passion into profession we became tour guides specialising in Gaudí and historic walking routes. Join our enthusiastic story telling! Discover The Barcelona Feeling!
The walk will start at the last residential building designed by Gaudí: Casa Mila. Following Passeig de Gracia down towards the historic center we will pass Casa Batlló & the Block of Discord (Casa Amatller, Casa Morera). After having turned into El Born we will stop at the Palau de la Música – the famous Modernist concert hall. The tour continues through the labyrinth of medieval streets where we will explain more historic buildings.
