The Gaudí Tour
This guided shore excursion will take you along the extraordinary buildings of architect Antoni Gaudi including a visit of Casa Batlló and the majestic Sagrada Familia. In a few hours you get a taste of the Barcelona’s Art Nouveau period.
The tour starts at 09.00h from Plaça Catalunya, in front of Deutsche Bank & Hotel Olivia Plaza. If Barcelona is your cruise port of call, you have a lot of transportation options to get to the center. The fastest way is to take a metro from Drassanes metro station (located on La Rambla close to the Christopher Columbus Monument) to Catalunya metro station (green line, 2 stops).
After meeting your guide you will start the tour with Passeig de Gràcia. Along this boulevard you can admire two of Gaudi’s houses: Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera. This area was built for the wealthy and rich Barcelonans. You can still see the luxury while strolling along the design shops, banks and stock exchange. Some architectural details include Gaudi’s tiles for the pavement and some modernist lampposts.
Together with your guide, you will visit Casa Batlló. This apartments building which is hidden behind an exceptional façade was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2005. It is one of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpieces. The visit includes the Noble Floor, the Rooftops and Chimneys, the Attic and the magnificent Lobby. You guide will help you to discover this artistic legend full of architectural details, metaphors and representation of nature, colors and forms.
The last stop of the tour is Sagrada Familia, one of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks and without doubt the jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s work. Your guide will explain the significance of the architectural details, which make this temple so unique. The building started in 1882 and is still not completed. Gaudí didn’t want it to be financed by taxes or funding, but voluntary by the people. That’s how your entrance fee (included in the price) will contribute to the completion of this stunning masterpiece.
You can stay as long as you want, go up the towers by elevator or visit the crypt and museum. After you return by coach to the city center or you can choose to join The Montjuic & Panoramic Tour.
