The architecture of Antoni Gaudí is what makes Barcelona special. We have a collection of Gaudi tours that have been designed to show you his masterpieces as well as some hidden gems off the beaten path, in Barcelona as well as the surrounding area.
And if you want to do some sites on your own, prepare your visits reading our blog posts about Gaudi and buying tickets online ahead of time.
CHURCHES AND MONASTERIES
Europe wouldn’t be Europe without its vast heritage of medieval churches and monasteries. Barcelona has beautiful Gothic churches and Basilicas, that we can show you in many of our city tours, but more specifically on the Old Town Tour. These are some unique ways to visit Barcelona churches:
Outside of the city you can find some cool monasteries and basilicas such as Montserrat, Gaudi’s Cripta Güell, Poblet, Sant Cugat or Vic.
- Getting to Sant Cugat or the Cripta Güell on your own is quite easy and it can be done in a morning by train.
- Vic is also easily reached by RENFE train but you’ll need a whole day.
- Poblet is better done by private (or rental) car.
As for reaching Montserrat, using public transportation takes longer and you’ll need a whole day – so if you wish to spare yourself the trouble make sure to check our Montserrat Tours. Or if you are an independent traveler, then check out our posts on Montserrat and the Montserrat passes below:
