TAILOR THIS BARCELONA MODERNISM WALKING TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This Eixample tour has been designed for adults able to walk, with a strong interest in architecture – specially Art Noveau / Modernism. It’s also great for repeat visitors that want to get a deeper insight of the Eixample district.

If you are traveling with kids, this modernism tour can be adapted for them although if they haven’t been to the Gaudi sites yet you’d rather book a Gaudi tour instead.

If you have walking issues, this tour is mostly walking (around 4km or 2.5 miles) with one taxi or subway ride, and very few opportunities to seat. However, it can be turned into a chauffeured tour with frequent stops: only the 4 Gats café (located in a pedestrian area) and the visit of the Hospital of Sant Pau would require some walking.

If you are on a wheelchair, this Eixample tour is quite wheelchair friendly: even the subway stations are adapted.

If you’d rather have a longer tour, add one or two extra hours for a longer walk around the Eixample district or to visit the inside of the Casa de les Punxes by Puig i Cadafalch, or the Museu del Modernisme – a lovely collection of modernist furniture, paintings and sculpture.

If you are want more modernist architecture off the beaten path, check out our tour of the Early Gaudi works, the Palau and Cripta Guell Tour, and the Tour of the Gaudi sites outside of Barcelona.
