Gaudi Tour: A Masterclass in Modernism and Mosaics

La Sagrada Família

La Sagrada Familia; stained glass windowsThe Sagrada Familia is maybe one of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks. The building is unsurprisingly a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This temple, by the genius architect, is still undergoing construction based on its complex, mind-blowing design.

Gaudi dedicated the latter part of his life to this work, a synthesis of his overall conceptions of architecture. Works are scheduled to finish in 2026, which marks the 100th anniversary of Gaudi’s death.

Your tour guide will help you appreciate the richness of the Sagrada Familia, with fascinating symbolism to be explored at every turn.  The basilica has three facades (Nativity, Passion, and Glory), each telling a story; your guide will point out the intricate details in each.

Completed, the church will have 18 spires, of which the central one will measure a massive 172 meters, making it the tallest church building in the world.  It will take over the title from the Ulm in Germany

Gaudi took lots of his inspiration from nature. The columns inside the church, appear like trees, with branches stretching towards the ceiling.  The wonderful stained glass windows allow the sun to stream in, with splashes of orange, green, red, and blue flooding the interior.

Park Güell

Gaudi Tour - Park GuellDuring the Gaudi Tour, you will also have the chance to explore another of Gaudi’s treasures, Park Güell. The sprawling park is located in the north of the city and is home to some wonderful examples of Gaudi’s famous trencadis style. Trencadis is a type of mosaic design that uses pieces of broken tiles to create patterns and decorate areas.

In the centre of the park, you will find a large terrace, with a balcony of curved seating which creates the edge to the terrace. It is also said to represent a sea serpent.  From here you can enjoy spectacular city views, along with an intricate display of Gaudi’s trencadis style. Underneath this terrace area is a patio filled with supporting columns. On the ceiling, you can see broken plates, amongst other ceramics, which have been used to create some fun abstract images.

One of the key photo opportunities the park offers is alongside the famous dragon which sits near the entrance of the park.  You will see this image in many Barcelona guidebooks and postcards!

Interesting facts

Your Gaudi Tour guide will share the history and charm of the park with you. To give you a taste, we can tell you that the Park was named after Count Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a housing estate inspired by the English City Garden movement.

Ultimately, this project did not come to fruition, but it did allow Gaudi to practice his innovative structural solutions, which would represent his organic style and later be applied to the design of the Sagrada Familia.

Fast-track entry into Park Güell is included in this tour.
