Our tour starts at the old village of Gràcia. Here you'll discover one of Barcelona's best kept secrets until 2017: Casa Vicens, Gaudi's first house! This house with oriental inspiration was his first project as a young graduate. The colors of the house blend with the surrounding garden, and it served as a prelude of a legacy that would mark Barcelona forever. Admission is included. Our guide will make an introduction to Casa Vicens and then you have 30 minutes to explore Gaudí’s first house.
After Casa Vicens, you will walk past the Gràcia neighborhood. In the past, Gràcia was an independent village. But with the big expansion of Barcelona in the late 19th century, it was integrated as part of the city. Today it still retains the air of a small village and life is quite different in this part of the city with a very strong and authentic personality.
You will then arrive at Passeig de Gràcia, the most exclusive boulevard in the city. We could call this street Barcelona’s 5th Avenue. In the past, rich families started a competition in the area to have the most eccentric facades: that’s why we found such a rich heritage. Listen to some local anecdotes while you stroll towards the next Gaudi stop.
The house is like a fairy tale when you see it from outside, but wait to see the interior! This is probably the building where Gaudí let go of his imagination completely. Many people say it's like being deep under the surface of the Mediterranean sea.
After some minutes, you’ll arrive at the Apple of Discord, one of Barcelona’s most famous blocks of houses. This is the perfect example of the facade competition that developed in Barcelona during the Modernista epoque. In just a few meters, you’ll spot three of the most beautiful facades in town: Casa Lleó Morera, Casa Amatller and, of course, Casa Batlló.
Finally, you’re ready to explore Casa Milà. Casa Milà is the last work that Gaudí completed in his life. Looking up at this building, you'll learn some anecdotes - it is now one of the most renowned buildings in Spain, but at first everybody hated it! But now, La Pedrera (the quarry), as locals call it, is one of Barcelona's must-sees.
Thanks to our fast-track ticket, you'll be able to get inside and finish your visit at your own pace with a video guide in your selected language.
