3-Hour Gaudi Architecture Tour in Barcelona: Gaudi in Context - Escorted Day Tour
During this 3-hour Barcelona Gaudí Tour, we’ll introduce the fantastic architecture of Antoni Gaudí, Barcelona’s most important architect, and situate his work within the context of Catalan society of the time. Besides visiting some of Gaudí’s most important sites, including the Casa Batlló (for which we secure skip-the-line tickets), we'll look broadly at how the city expanded in the late 19th and early 20th century and became a breeding ground for the modernist movement and, eventually, such luminaries as Miró and Picasso. In the company of an architect or art historian, we’ll also compare and contrast the work of Gaudí’s contemporaries to fully understand the breadth of design that was Catalan Modernisme.

Supplier: Context Travel
Barcelona, the self-confident and progressive capital of Spain, is a tremendous place to be. Though it boasts outstanding Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings, and some great museums – most notably those dedicated to Picasso and Catalan art – it is above all a place where there's enjoyment simply in walking the streets, stopping in at bars and cafés, drinking in the atmosphere. A thriving port and the most prosperous commercial centre in Spain, it has a sophistication and cultural dynamism way ahead of the rest of the country. In part this reflects the city's proximity to France, whose influence is apparent in the elegant boulevards and imaginative cooking. But Barcelona has also evolved an individual and eclectic cultural identity, most perfectly and eccentrically expressed in the architecture of Antoni Gaudí. Scattered as Barcelona's main sights may be, the greatest concentration of interest is around the old town (La Ciutat Vella). These cramped streets above the harbor are easily manageable, and far more enjoyable, on foot. Start, as everyone else does, with the Ramblas.
