Gaudi Tour: Sagrada Família, Park Güell, and Casa Batlló

3. Gaudi Tour: Sagrada Família, Park Güell, and Casa Batlló

The name Gaudí is almost synonymous with Barcelona. The city’s favorite architect has come to embody the style of a city deeply rooted in its natural surroundings. This is Barcelona at its vibrant, playful best. On this, the most complete tour of Gaudí’s work, visit three of his residential works, including one unknown to most visitors; skip long lines to wander around the beautiful Park Guell; and embark on a thorough exploration of Gaudí’s greatest work and final resting place, La Sagrada Família. Your tour starts with first entrance to Casa Batlló, arguably Gaudí’s most impressive residential property. Enter ahead of the morning crowds and discover the genius solutions Gaudí employed to solve architectural problems throughout the house, dispersing light and air throughout its many levels. A sure highlight is the roof, designed to resemble the scales of a dragon – the great emblem of Barcelona. Somewhere in the middle is Park Guell. Part fanciful explosion of color, part thoughtful study of organic forms, it is a perfect reflection of the natural world. Since this became a ticketed site a few years ago, entrance lines have become extremely long – so it’s a good thing you have skip-the-line access. Your tour ends, as Gaudí himself did – in the La Sagrada Família. It can be hard to know where to look on your first visit to La Sagrada Família, so it’s lucky you have a Gaudí expert on hand to guide your experience. You’ll spend a full hour exploring the church itself. Due to the popularity of Gaudí and his works, there are long lines outside all three of the sites you will enter (Casa Batlló, Park Guell and La Sagrada Família), but with pre-reserved entrance to each, you will sail straight inside. Meanwhile a private transport between sites means you’ll cover more ground than would be possible even in a whole day on your own. Give Gaudí the time he deserves on this complete tour of his finest works.

Monse was a Great tour guide. she was knowledgeable not only about gaudi but Barcelona as well. first, we went in and learned about Casa de Batllo (inside the mind of gaudi was amazing), then we saw the outside of Casa de Mila and learned about it, then we saw the outside and learned about Casa de Vicens, then we took the bus to Park de Guell and explored the beautiful Park, lastly, we went to La Sagrada Familia and explored the inside of this beautiful unfinished masterpiece.

It was wonderful to get to see so many different Gaudi buildings in one day. Having a bus take us from place to place made a huge difference. We also thought the “whisper” headphones were a great idea. Our guide, Aida was excellent! Very knowledgeable and quite friendly.

We had an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Oliver, was knowledgeable on history and art and top of being an incredible human being! Keep us smiling, keep us informed. I hope we can return to Barcelona and have Oliver as our guide again! Gracias!

We really enjoyed this tour. It was at our own pace and was very relaxed. Much less touristy than some of the other Gaudi houses. It is an early house of his and it felt like he was experimenting with many different finishes. So much to look at!

The house is well worth the visit for its beauty and historic importance as Gaudi’s first commission. The audio guide is excellent and if you have any questions the friendly staff is there to answer them.
