This tour is actually a combination of two of our tours: The Gaudí – Sagrada Familia Tour and The Montjuic & Panoramic Tour. Since this is an afternoon departure, the order varies, which means that although we visit the same places, we start from Montjuic and finish at the La Sagrada Familia.
Passeig de Gràcia
Famous as the most visited shopping street in Barcelona, this is where you want to be for the best deals and the hottest products in the city. Passeig de Gràcia is home to the best of brands and the most luxurious designer names of the city. It is also home to a number of options for shoppers with a limited budget and numerous things to see and do for the city's visitors. This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural highlights include Gaudí’s tiles for pavements, modernist lamp posts and a variety of grand buildings, including two of Gaudí’s houses: Casa Batlló.
Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
The jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s works, the temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full. Gaudí wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.
Separated from the Olympic port by a number of beaches and Barceloneta, the old fisherman’s quarter, Old Port has been entirely remodelled to extend the city center all the way down the Rambla into the harbour. This is one of the most popular and attractive areas to be in and is home to a number of shops, restaurants, open-air entertainment and nightclubs.
