Gaudi Outside of Barcelona Tour

COLONIA GUELL CHURCH AND ARTIGAS GARDENS TOUR

Gaudi Hidden Gems Close To Barcelona

Are you a total Gaudi fan? Have you heard of his other unfinished church and want to visit it? Would you also like to head to the mountains to check out his “other Park”, besides Park Guell?

Most people are not aware that Gaudi also worked outside of Barcelona. And even if they are, getting to his hidden gems requires mastering the public transportation or driving yourself. Does it sound like too much work?

If you still don’t want to miss the Gaudi sites off the beaten path, this tour will show you the church where he tested his catenarian arches theory before using it in his other masterpieces: the Crypta Güell. And then on to the mountains to walk around a river garden Gaudí built at the same time he was working on the famous Park Güell: the Artigas Garden.
