The tour starts in the center of town at Plaça Catalunya, home to some of the most distinctive Catalan architecture: Passeig de Gracia. Take in the striking facades of the private modernist buildings in the area. Antoni Gaudí's La Pedrera is certain to stick out. In the part of town aptly described as the "apple of discord," discover many impressive examples of modernist houses like Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, Casa Lleó Morera and Casa Ametller.
Venture toward the historic Gràcia district until you reach the world-famous Park Güell. Located on a hill with spectacular views of Barcelona. Park Güell showcases Gaudí's signature style in combination with natural forms. Meander through the uniquely beautiful corners of the park with a professional guide providing interesting facts and stories to understand the work of Gaudí.
Follow the footsteps of the famous architect and continue to the Eixample. This district was projected by Ildefons Cerdà as an extension of the old town, to control the growth of the city. Drive toward the modernist gems: Hospital de Sant Pau and Gaudí’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. No photographs you've ever seen of this basilica will compare to your first experience in front of Gaudí's temple. Discover the symbolism in the architecture through your knowledgeable guide.
Continue an architectural tour toward the Mediterranean sea, passing by the Plaza Monumental de Barcelona. Make a pit stop at the contemporary Agbar Tower, the newest reference point for the Barcelona skyline. Once you reach Bogatell beach, cross the waterfront through Port Vell (Old Port), Gothic Drassanes and Columbus Monument, near the iconic La Rambla, and end up at the brand new World Trade Center.
Climb the Montjuic Mountain. Find the Mirador de l'Alcalde, a terrace that offers spectacular views over the Barcelona skyline. On the same mountain, find facilities from the 1992 Olympics: the remodeled Olympic Stadium, originally built in 1929 and Palau Sant Jordi by Arata Isozaki. Get a taste of old-school urban planning and architecture designed for the International Exhibition of 1929, as Plaça Espanya references St. Peter's Square in the Vatican. See the the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc and the National Palace.
Head to the center of the Old Town. Finish the day in the quaint corners of the Gothic Quarter with a relaxing walking tour, with echoes of the Roman and medieval city's past all around you. Stop at the Cathedral Avenue to admire the magnificent temple’s Gothic façade and practically travel back in time to the origins of Barcelona at Plaça Sant Jaume, the seat of today's City Hall.
