This tour is a combination of two of our tours: The Gaudí – Sagrada Familia Tour and The Montjuic and Panoramic Tour. In the afternoon departure the order varies, although we visit the same places, we start from Montjuic and finish at the Sagrada Familia.
Passeig de Gracia: Being one of the most important avenues both in Barcelona and Catalonia, the street links Plaça Catalunya and the district of Gràcia. Walking all down the street you'll find plenty of luxury shops and architectural details dating from the XIX century Barcelonian bourgeoisie. Within those elements, we can find Gaudi's works Casa Batlló and Casa Milà (also La Pedrera). A delight to the eye! [readmore] Sagrada Familia: The jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s works, the temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudí wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.
Old Port: Separated from the Olympic port by long beaches and the old fisherman’s quarter, Barceloneta. The Old Port has been remodeled to extend the city center down the Rambla into the harbor. Attractive and popular area with restaurants, shops, nightclubs, and frequent open-air entertainment.
Columbus Monument: built in his honor in 1888, it is at the foot of the famous Rambla. World Trade Centre an original imposing building by Henry N. Cobb whose aesthetic features are highlighted by the building being surrounded by water.
