Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí left his mark on Barcelona with unrivaled passion and imagination, as you'll see on this tour to three of his most renowned masterpieces.

You will have the opportunity to discover one of the most important hidden jewels of modernist architecture, Gaudi's Colonial Güell, the location of your first stop. An industrial village built to provide accommodation for factory workers. Gaudi was in charge of the building of the church and even though the church remained unfinished, the crypt is a culminating point of Gaudi's works. This construction includes for the first time practically all of his architectural innovations.

Leaving Colonia Guell, you will make your way to La Sagrada Familia (Church of the Holy Family). It has become an icon of the city, its spindle-shaped towers dominating the skyline. Started in 1882, it remains unfinished and quite controversial, as construction continues sporadically. Gaudí worked on the project himself for more than 40 years and his genius is apparent throughout (outside visit). Sagrada Familia has being a consecrated Temple, since October 2010.

Next, you will enjoy a panoramic drive through Monttjuic, driving through Passeig de Gracia, where you will have the opportunity to view the colorful Casa Batlló, a whimsical building known for its elaborate decoration and undulating forms derived from nature. Once the home of the Batlló family, it showcases Gaudí at the height of his powers, a tour de force described as an "architectural smile." you will also pass by Via Laietana and Colon Square before making your way back to the pier.

Please note: The visit to Sagrada Familia is an exterior visit only. Due to new parking restrictions for coaches, please be advised that due to new parking restrictions, there will be a 15-minute walk from the parking area to the Sagrada Familia and vice-versa (30-min in total). This tour is not considered suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
