Tour description provided by Viator

Immerse yourself in the architecture and creative work of artistic genius Antoni Gaudí on your 4-hour guided afternoon excursion in Barcelona. Take some time to admire the designer's UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia before heading to Gaudí's iconic Park Güell for a skip-the-line visit. Spend time exploring the park's wealth of mosiac-adorned benches, walls and sculptures, before heading back to the city center to explore the Gaudí-designed residences of La Pedrera (Casa Milà). Finish your amazing tour visiting Casa Batlló on your own with a fast pass and a smart guide. Transport between sites in an air-conditioned motor coach with a maximum of 50 people provided.
Take an art-lover's tour of Barcelona as you learn the history and inspiration behind the many creations of Catalan master Antoni Gaudi. Whether you're an architecture-lover or simply looking to gain a better understanding of the life of one of Barcelona's most famous citizens, this tour offers the perfect starting point. Begin your 4-hour tour by meeting your guide in central Barcelona at 3:30 p.m., heading to the tour's first stop at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia. Considered by many to be one of Gaudi's finest creations, this towering architectural masterpiece features a visually striking arrangement of skinny spires and detail-rich façades. Listen to details about the history of this incredible building, which is still under construction more than 130 years after work began. Admission inside the church is not included, but your guide will take you around the outside of this inspiring construction.Continue with your guide to Park Güell, a gorgeous Gaudi-designed park situated in the hills above Barcelona on the hill of El Carmel. This beautiful park, covered head to toe with intricate mosaic-tiled terraces, benches, sculptures, and walls, frequently experiences long lines at its entrance. But thanks to your fast-track ticket included with your tour, you'll leap right past these lines on your way in, spending the extra time to experience the striking walkways and leaf-shrouded grounds of this urban oasis. Leave Park Güell and head next to Passeig de Gracia back in the city center. This iconic street features a number of Gaudi designs, including two private residences, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera, which have been converted into museums. Visit both homes, taking time to learn from your guide about how the wealthy Batllo and Milà families collaborated with Gaudi on the projects, along with the ensuing scandal that resulted when the visually-striking homes were finally unveiled to the public. Your tour ends near the entrance to Casa Batllo where you can use your fast pass ticket to visit on your own.
