Entrance into Casa Mila and Casa Batllò.
The Tour: A Masterclass in Modernism and Mosaics
Passeig de Gràcia: This beautiful central boulevard is known for its upmarket shops as well as upmarket architecture. The famous names of Valentino, Gucci and Louis Vuitton might attract some people to the street, but it is the outstanding and awe-inspiring buildings of Antoni Gaudí that draws the real crowds. Even though the avenue has many modernist buildings, Gaudi’s works Casa Batllò and Casa Milà are the stars of the show.
Casa Batllò: This colourful and highly decorated building was inspired by dragons, with the blue, pink, orange and green tiles mimicking the scales of these mythical creatures. Your guide will tell you the amazing story of the building from the outside and leave you excited to visit the inside when you have time.
Casa Milà: Starkly different in style to Casa Batllò, the stone waves of this building were constructed for the Milà family during the rush to snap up real estate in the Eixample neighbourhood of Barcelona. Your guide will show you this building from the outside and you can return later to see the inside if you so choose. There is also a restaurant inside which offers a delicious breakfast option. It’s also known as La Pedrera, which means “The Quarry”, due to its strange rocky form.
The Main Event
From Passeig de Gracia you will head to the most famous of Gaudi’s designs. This building may be famous for its size and scale, but it’s most famous for having taken so many years to build, remains unfinished to this day!
La Sagrada Família: This temple of the genius architect is still undergoing construction based on his complex and mind-blowing design. Gaudí dedicated the latter part of his life to this work, a synthesis of his overall conceptions of architecture, but died before his dream could be realised. Works are now scheduled to finish in 2026, to mark the 100th anniversary of Gaudi’s death, and residents of Barcelona notice the different week by week, month by month, year by year.
Entry into Sagrada Familia is included in this tour. The richness of detail and its significance need an expert’s explanation in order for visitors to fully appreciate this architectural marvel.
