Full description
Get to know the most famous architect of the Catalan metropolis, Gaudí, in his many periods of creation. Begin with works from his time as a student; see and compare his early contract work and discover the role nature played in his thinking. Examine his gradual move from Historicism to Modernism and then forays into Surrealism with the Casa Mila. Learn more the history of Gaudí. Gaudí made a name for himself early on. To earn a little money for his studies in architecture, he made plans for his professors and helped with the world's fair grounds in Ciutadella Park. He is regarded today as one of the principal figures of Catalan Modernism, even through he kept developing his style and dabbled in fantastic surrealism. The church in the worker's colony, "Colonia Güell," was important to Gaudí and he even finished its crypt. He also began experimenting with ideas for his most famous sacred work there: the Sagrada Familia, whose construction began when he was 31 and to which he dedicated much of the rest of his life. It is said that Gaudí reinvented himself every 10 years, and the Sagrada Familia, on which he worked for 43 years, exhibits all of these styles.

      Gaudi!

      Johannes hat uns sehr gut unterhalten. Er verfügt über ein schier unerschöpfliches Wissen zum Thema und hat uns Barcelona noch ein Stück näher gebracht. Er war mit Geist und Gaudi bei er Sache, wir hatten eine sehr unterhaltsamen und kurzweiligen Nachmittag. Obendrein haben wir viele nützliche Tipps zum Aufenthalt bekommen, so auch eine Liste aller Restaurantempfehlungen. Ferner hat all unsere Fragen kenntnisreich beantwortet. Vielen Dank, lieber Johannes, es hat uns sehr viel Spassgemacht, gerne wieder!

      sehr empfehlenswert

      Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe von 4 Personen und wollten eine ganztägige Führung durch Barcelona. Nach Anfrage wurde uns eine Privattour zusammengestellt. Diese hat zwar etwas mehr gekostet, als in einer öffentlichen Gruppe, sie war die Mehrkosten aber absolut wert. Wir hatten soviel Informationen bekommen und unser Guide Johannes hat uns diese mit einer Freude und Leichtigkeit vermittelt, das unsere Tour sogar 2 Stunden länger ging als geplant. Vielen Dank nochmal es hat noch nie soviel Spaß gemacht soviel über eine Stadt zu erfahren.

      Sehr gute und interessante Tour

      Unser Guide Johannes war sehr gut und war deutscher Muttersprachler, sodass man keine Probleme hatte ihn zu verstehen. Die Führung war sehr gut und kurzweilig. Man hat die wichtigsten Gaudi-Bauten von außen gesehen und dazu viele interessante Infos bekommen. Auch allgemein zum Jugendstil hat er viel erzählt. Danach hatte man einen sehr guten Überblick und konnte dann entscheiden, welche Bauten man sich noch einmal von innen anschauen möchte, wobei die Sagrada Familia natürlich Pflicht ist. Man hat in der Tour sehr viel gesehen und trotzdem war die Tour nicht allzu anstrengend. Es war eine sehr gute Mischung. Außerdem hat er uns ein Cafe gezeigt, wo es die beste heiße Schokolade gibt. Diese war seeeehr lecker!!!
