Spain: Gaudí Architecture Tour
Duration: 3 hours
Meeting point: by agreement
Batlló House is one of the most representative pieces in the modernist architecture of Barcelona. It was built by Antoni Gaudi during the period of 1904-1906, on behalf of Josep. Today, the spectacular facade is one of Barcelona’s icons. It is located in La Manzana de la Discordia, in the Paseo de Gracia. The museum-house is opened today for cultural visits, but it is also the home of modern-day events.
Casa Mila or La Pedrera is another fruit of Gaudi´s genius creation and it is the second most visited museum in Barcelona after La Sagrada Familia. Located in the Paseo de Gracia, its construction began in 1906 and it was later finished in 1910. Casa Mila is the largest residential building in the Eixample district, getting your attention through its irregular architectural design.
Sagrada Familia is a large Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona, designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Although an unfinished project, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage. The construction of Sagrada Familia commenced in 1882, with Gaudi taking over the project and transforming it through his architectural and engineering style, combining Gothic and Art Nouveau forms. Gaudi devoted his last years to the project and at the time of his death, less than a quarter of the project was complete.
