Excursions in Barcelona

Gaudí’s Barcelona

Discover the whimsical art of the city's most famous architect, Antonio Gaudí, during this scenic, half-day sightseeing tour of Barcelona.


Depart the pier for the drive through the centre of the city towards the north and Colonia Güell.


Colonia Güell

A jewel of modernism still relatively unknown to the big public, Colonia Güell remains today as one of the most secret treasures of Catalan architecture genious Antoni Gaudí. Conceived as an industrial village to accommodate factory workers, Gaudi was in charge of building the church of the installations and even though the temple remained unfinished, the crypt is considered a culminating point of his works: the construction including for the first time practically all of his architectural innovations. After a guided visit, your tour continues on with a visit to the Church of the Holy Family, or, 'La Sagrada Familia'.


La Sagrada Familia

This monumental but unfinished church is Gaudí's most famous masterpiece. Its towering spires are Barcelona's most prominent landmark. Many of the steeples Gaudí envisioned have not yet been built, and much of the structure is still exposed to the heavens. Take a walk around this unfinished church on an exterior visit for photos before continuing your drive through the Eixample District.


Eixample District Tour

The Eixample District is home to some of Barcelona's most stunning examples of Modernist architecture, especially along the elegant Passeig de Gracia. Important buildings such as the Pedrera House, the Batllo House and the Ametller House line this impressive thoroughfare.


Casa Batlló

Next, a visit is made to Casa Batlló. Originally a residence of a wealthy industrialist, Gaudí completely renovated the building between 1904 and 1906, and its façade is unsurpassed in the entire city. There are no corners; even the walls are rounded and the tile roof depicts the back of a dragon. Your guided walking tour of this Gaudí masterpiece includes the impressive main floor and rooftop, which features whimsical chimneys and offers spectacular views over the city.


Following your visit, re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with several steps to negotiate at the Casa Batlló (4 floors). It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Barcelona's City Government will no longer allow motor-coaches to drive by or stop near the Sagrada Familia. Respectful attire that covers the shoulders and knees should be worn in order to enter the crypt. Photos and video are not allowed inside the crypt. Motor-coaches are required to park in a parking lot approximately 2-3 blocks away from the Sagrada Familia. This will add an approximate 10 to 15 minute walk to and from Sagrada Familia (30 minutes total) and the order of sites visited may vary.
