This tour is a deep dive into the life and work of Atoni Gaudí, with first entrance at Casa Batlló; stops at La Pedrera and his early work at Casa Vicens; a skip the Line tour of Park Güell.
Your day starts with three of Gaudi’s most iconic houses, beginning with first entrance into Casa Batlló, arguably Gaudí’s most impressive residential property (and certainly his most-visited). Here you’ll see Gaudí’s genius for natural forms and lighting, along with one of the most jaw-dropping rooftops in the world. Then head over to La Pedrera (outside visit) , or The Stone Quarry to see the way his work evolved and learn why it wasn’t always lauded in its own time. Finally, check out the Casa Vicens, one of Gaudí’s earliest works, which is colourful and flamboyant in the over-the-top manner of an architect still developing his own style and vernacular.For a more expansive view of his vision you’ll head over to Park Güell. Part fanciful explosion of color, part thoughtful study of organic forms, it is a perfect reflection of the natural world and also one of Barcelona’s most beloved parks. Luckily, your tickets will skip any entrance lines.The last stop is also the most emblematic: the Sagrada Família Cathedral, use a pre-reserved ticket to head to the top of one of the towers for unparalleled views of the city.For architecture and history lovers, there is no better way to soak up the works of one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.Sites Visited:- Casa Batllo - Casa Amatller - Casa Lleo Morera (outside)- Casa Milà - La Pedrera (outside)- Manzana de la Discordia - Passeig de Gracia - Eixample (famous neighborhood where Manzana de la discordia is)- Avinguda Diagonal - Gracia (famous neighborhood)- Casa Vicens (outside)- Parc Güell - Basilica of the Sagrada Familia & Towers
