      Small-Group Gaudi Tour with Local Architect

      Barcelona, Spain
      From (USD) $126 Per Person (Minimum 2)
      • Casa Batllo: Visit the uniquely designed house called "House of Bones" for its skeletal quality. See how the exterior resembles parts of a dragon, and examine one wonderful detail after another throughout the house's interior.
      • La Pedrera: See Casa Mila, possibly Gaudi's second most popular building design, nick-named the "stone quarry" as it's constructed entirely of natural stone without color and ornamentation. Like Casa Batllo, La Pedrera is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
      • Rival works: In the company of an architect or art historian, you'll cruise by the works of some of Gaudi's contemporary rivals, to compare and contrast their works with Gaudi's.
      • Skip the lines: It doesn't matter how many people are waiting to go into Casa Batllo; your skip the line ticket lets you bypass the crowds and go in, so you have more time to enjoy it. 
      • Small group: To provide you with a higher level of attention and interaction with your guide, and create a higher level of intimacy, this tour is limited to no more than six people.
      • Tickets included: Don't be fooled by other tours that don't include ticket prices in the tour. There are no surprise fees on this tour!
      • Expert English-speaking guides: Our guides all have advanced degrees and impeccable English. 
      About This Barcelona Tour

      Josep and Amalia Batllo wanted something different. They had bought a home in a very fashionable and prestigious area of Barcelona, but they wanted more. They wanted a house that stood out as audacious and creative. A house that looked like no other. So they hired an architect like no other: Antoni Gaudi.

      Gaudi liked to use patterns of nature to bring meaning to his architectural designs. He never copied nature; he let it inspire him. His talent for designing and transforming spaces was so great, that even though he wasn't a great formal student, his professors wanted to collaborate with him.

      When Gaudi finished his studies in 1878, the director of the School of Architecture exclaimed: " I do not know if we have awarded this degree to a madman or to a genius; only time will tell."

      It turned out to be genius. Gaudi turned Casa Batllo into an architectural masterpiece that actually elicits a sense of the mystic and the magic. A house that incorporates both bold, unmistakable lines and playfully hidden details. Casa Batllo is poetic, enthralling, hypnotic, and seductive.

      And most definitely different.

      Not looking the part

      As a youth, Antoni Gaudi was outgoing and social; but as he aged and succeeded, he began to neglect his appearance and distance himself from others. On the evening of June 7, 1926, Gaudi was struck by a tram and knocked unconscious. Looking like a vagabond, he didn't receive great or immediate care. By the time a local priest recognized him, his condition had deteriorated beyond help. He died on June 10, 1926, at the age of 73.
