Fullday walking tour of Barcelona
Your tour will start with a walk around the backstreets and plazas of the Gothic Quarter, seeing, Gothic courtyards, the Royal Palace of the Crown of Aragon, the Barcelona City Council and the Catalan Government building, amongst other.
You will also see the Cathedral, an outstanding Gothic basilica where you can visit its choir, remarkable side chapels, the crypt of St. Eulàlia and an old cloister with geese living in it.
Nearby is the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, where the medieval atmosphere is still in the air despite the attacks suffered in 1391. If you are interested, we can visit there the oldest synagogue in Europe.
Our walk will take you next to La Rambla, a famous promenade vibrant any time of the day and night. We’ll pass the flower market as well as some other interesting sites.
Also there, the Boqueria Food Market is probably one of the best food markets in the whole world, and you will be amazed at the colors, smells and variety of the local and exotic products sold there.
Leaving behind the Old Town, we’ll enter the Eixample District or Expansion, home to the best modernist architecture in town (the equivalent to the French Art Nouveau). Passeig de Gràcia is the main street, where the top architects of the early 1900s competed against each other in the so called Block of Disagreement. One of them was of course, Antoni Gaudí with his Casa Batlló.
We’ll stop to eat some great tapas around 1pm. It’s a great way to discover the local food by sampling lots of small plates to share. Casual food, fun and yummy!
In the afternoon we’ll explore the rest of the must-see Gaudi sites. First we’ll enter La Pedrera / Casa Milà, where you’ll be fascinated by the chimneys and the view of the rooftop.
Then a quick taxi or subway ride will take us to Gaudí’s Masterpiece, the Sagrada Família church, where he worked the last 43 years of his life until his death in 1926. Still a work in process, it’s scheduled to be completed by 1926-30 approx. Yet the inside is the most breathtaking place you’ve ever seen!
Finally, a taxi ride will be needed to reach the Park Güell: Another unfinished project by Gaudí, this time commissioned by his friend and patron Eusebi Güell. A failed housing development that has become the most fairy-tailish park in Barcelona.
From there, it’s easy to find taxis back into the city center.
