Tour Description
Are you ready to discover more about the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism? This journey will reveal Gaudi's talent and what lies behind his majestic works.

We’ll begin by looking at the history of Barcelona and the growth of the city, exploring the work of urban planner Ildefons Cerda, whose 1859 “enlargement” laid out the modern city. With this architectural context as a backdrop, you will make your way through the heart of Barcelona to see two of Gaudí's masterpieces: the Casa Milà (also known as La Pedrera), where we’ll explore its fantastical exterior, and the Casa Batlló, on the Block of Discord, where we’ll spend time on its roof and the apartment inside. 

During the Gaudí tour, you will also look at the works of some of this architect's followers and rivals, including buildings by Puig i Cadafalch and Domènech i Montaner. You will discuss these Modernista architects’ influence on Gaudí and how they wove their unique points of view and inspirations into their finished designs. 

By the end, you will have insight into Barcelona’s aesthetic evolution and what led Gaudí to construct incredible buildings that fight against the modern grid deliberately.
  • You want an introduction to Barcelona's most important architect, Antoni Gaudí­, and see some of his most important sites including Casa Batlló (interior) and Casa Milà (exterior)
  • Please note that this tour does not include Gaudí's Parc Güell or Sagrada Familia. If you are interested in viewing these sites with us, you may enjoy our Sagrada Familia Tour, or our Full-Day Gaudí Barcelona Tour.
  • If you’re traveling with children under 12, we recommend our family-oriented Gaudí Tour for Kids.

Is this tour appropriate for children?
For young children (ages 3-12) we recommend our shorter Gaudi Tour for Kids, which is led by experts specially trained in educating children.

What are skip-the-line tickets?
For this tour, your tickets are pre-purchased which allows you to skip the ticket office line upon arrival at the venue. You may still have to wait in a security line or in a line to have your pre-purchased ticket scanned.   

What is the difference between a Small Group and a Private Tour?
Context Travel offers both Private and Small Group Tours. Private tours are booked between your party and a local expert, where you'll be given a private tour of the venue. Small Groups are similar to what you might associate with a typical "walking tour." Capped at a maximum of six per group, you'll be joined by other travelers who have purchased the same tour and tour the venue as a group. 

Both offer the same Context experience — an incredibly unique, deep dive into a place or subject led by a world-class expert in their field showing you the highlights of iconic venues alongside hidden gems and surprising stories.

Great walking tour of Barcelona where we got to not only see two of Gaudi's houses (and inside Battlo) but also got to explore other contemporary architects. Cornel had a wealth of knowledge and was very friendly and eager to share.
Santiago was FANTASTIC! Lots of great insights that really helped us understand Modernism in Barcelona. We even received the opportunity to go into a Modern building (now an Hotel) and peek into the lobby of great building! Santi showed us a remarkable time!
This tour was fantastic. Biel taught us a lot and we came away with a greater appreciation for the architecture and the culture. Thank you!
