Gaudi Tour: Sagrada Família, Park Güell, and Casa Batlló

10. Gaudi Tour: Sagrada Família, Park Güell, and Casa Batlló

The name Gaudí is almost synonymous with Barcelona. The city’s favorite architect has come to embody the style of a city deeply rooted in its natural surroundings. This is Barcelona at its vibrant, playful best. On this, the most complete tour of Gaudí’s work, visit three of his residential works, including one unknown to most visitors; skip long lines to wander around the beautiful Park Guell; and embark on a thorough exploration of Gaudí’s greatest work and final resting place, La Sagrada Família. Your tour starts with first entrance to Casa Batlló, arguably Gaudí’s most impressive residential property. Enter ahead of the morning crowds and discover the genius solutions Gaudí employed to solve architectural problems throughout the house, dispersing light and air throughout its many levels. A sure highlight is the roof, designed to resemble the scales of a dragon – the great emblem of Barcelona. Somewhere in the middle is Park Guell. Part fanciful explosion of color, part thoughtful study of organic forms, it is a perfect reflection of the natural world. Since this became a ticketed site a few years ago, entrance lines have become extremely long – so it’s a good thing you have skip-the-line access. Your tour ends, as Gaudí himself did – in the La Sagrada Família. It can be hard to know where to look on your first visit to La Sagrada Família, so it’s lucky you have a Gaudí expert on hand to guide your experience. You’ll spend a full hour exploring the church itself. Due to the popularity of Gaudí and his works, there are long lines outside all three of the sites you will enter (Casa Batlló, Park Guell and La Sagrada Família), but with pre-reserved entrance to each, you will sail straight inside. Meanwhile a private transport between sites means you’ll cover more ground than would be possible even in a whole day on your own. Give Gaudí the time he deserves on this complete tour of his finest works.

Fantastic trip with a brilliant tour guide. It was so informative, timed well so you weren’t rushing about and could really soak up the atmosphere. The only thing we think would be good to include is a tour of Palau Güell, as having visited here independently, it struck us how much of an influence this building had on Gaudi’s future career.

Jorge managed to sail, entertain us and provide refreshments! All the while he told us stories and we enjoyed the small group situation! I definitely would highly recommend this sunset cruise!

Miguel and Carlos were great hosts - easy-going, kind, fun. For some reason we did have a little challenge finding the office ahead of the cruise.

Great guide (Maribel), totally organized, wonderful having the tickets and transportation between sights provided by the tour.

A must see, make sure your devices are charged or bring a power bank
