This tour starts driving around the Montjuïc Hill to see the City views from a vantage point, then drive past the 1992 Olympic facilities and the Stadium, and continue through the 1929 World Fair & Plaça Espanya.
Next we’ll head to theGothic Quarter to stroll around the medieval plazas and backstreet where hide Roman ruins and Gothic patios. We’ll also see the Royal Palace, the City Council and the Generalitat Government building.
Our main stop there will be the Barcelona Cathedral, a basilica from the Middle Ages with a historical the wooden choir, beautiful side chapels, the tomb of St. Eulàlia and a cloister where gees have lived for centuries.
After that, the driver will take us to the Eixample District / Passeig de Gràcia. The Expansion is the area where the local Art Nouveau or Modernism was developed between the late 1800s and early 1900s. We’ll explore Ildefons Cerdà’s city plan and we’ll learn about the 3 best architects of the time at the Block of Disagreement: Domènech i Muntaner, Puig i Cadafalch, and of course, Antoni Gaudí.

Next we’ll head to the impressive Sagrada Família Church, where we can skip the line to get in. Gaudi worked in this project for 43 years until he died in 1926. Although ten more towers are still missing, the inside has been already consacrated and the rest is planned to be finished around 2026-30. A place you’ll never forget!
