Casa Vicens – the Vicens’s house (45min/1h)

Recently open (November 2017), after several years of renovation. The house was commanded by a ceramic owner factory (Gaudi’s first paid work) which might explain the use of ceramic over the house. Mr Vicens wanted a country house outside the city.

Yes, 120 years ago the house was surrounded by country side. It is a fine example of Gaudi’s first inspiration mixing, oriental influence, Moorish Revival architecture and art nouveau style. Today, the house is very little visited and it already shows the originality, the imagination and the genius of Gaudi.

Sagrada Familia (1h20)

Gaudi’s uncompleted master piece. There is no word to describe the originality and uniqueness of this cathedral. The entire building is a feat, by the amazing light and colours game that you got inside, the unreal proportion and the technical creativity.

The Sagrada Familia Cathedral seems directly to come out of a dream but you wouldn’t be alone. You cannot stay in Barcelona without having a look at it, at least from outside. It is a must do!

Hospital Sant Pau (45min/1h) 

This unknown building is the biggest Modernist complex in all of Europe and it is UNESCO protected.

Thanks to the genius architect Lluis Domènech I Montaner for this huge hospital which was used right up until 2009! It is like a city within a city, and you will be amazed discovering the organisation of the inner streets, buildings, gardens etc. Everything has been made to look harmonious and integrates XX century medical techniques. Don’t hesitate to visit it! Only a stone’s throw of the Sagrada Familia and you won’t regret it.

Park Güell (30min/45min) 

  If you’re looking for one of Barcelona’s best views in a surrealistic environment, then you cannot miss Park Güell ! Originally it was a city-park project, but because of a lack of money it has been turned into a public park.

Unfortunately, the spot designed by Gaudi is not public anymore but well worth the visit. It is a nice place to take a walk and enjoy Gaudi’s creativity. You may even feel like you’re in fairy tale.

Palau Güell – Güell’s palace (45min/1h)

Welcome to Gaudi’s world! The palace is Gaudi’s first complete mansion. Thanks to the Güell family whom, for the first time permitted Gaudi to design as he pleased, a carte blanche.

Similarly, to Casa Vicens, Gaudi used the material related to the owner’s industrial activity (reinforced concrete). The palace is a fusion of shapes, colours, materials, furniture, symbols etc. Amazingly surprising and creative.

Palau de la Musica – Palace of Catalan Music 

Hidden right in the old Barcelona, the surrealistic building built by Doménech I Montaner is a masterpiece of Catalan modernism.

It was ordered by the Catalan Choral society and at the time was very criticized by his architectural delirium (the Modernist movement wasn’t trendy anymore). On this tour you will get the chance to enjoy the majestic concert hall where you can look at the beautiful stained-glass skylight and the floral decorations.

Don’t hesitate to go for a concert !

Casa Milà – Mila’s house (45min/1h)

Ordered by the Milà Family, Gaudi had an unlimited budget! Also known as La Pedrera (The “Open Quarry”) because of the exclusive façade technique. Indeed, the artist put an over layer of stone which appears like a quarry.

The building to this day is inhabited so access is restricted to two spots. The rooftop which many believe is the best part of the visit, with a stunning view over the Sagrada Familia and the second spot is to one of the attic which has unconventional 270 parabolic vaults. And of course one of the appartment is open to the visit.
