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). The tour continues through medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter and El Born. Along the way we will explain more historic buildings. The tour finishes at the Palau de la Música – the famous Modernist concert hall.
We will walk in a small group of max. 6 people. However, we can also accommodate bigger groups. Please contact us. Hablamos español también si prefieres un tour en este idioma.
