Join professional and licensed local guide, Montse Marques, for this virtual tour of Barcelona and learn more about Antoni Gaudi.
We will learn about the Sagrada Familia which took nearly 150 years to build. The Church is extremely complex, with 18 spires. Once completed the Sagrada Familia will be the tallest Church in the world. Montse will guide us through the interior, exterior and beyond of Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece.
Our journey into the mind of Gaudi continues with a visit to Casa Batllo. Called the “House of Bones, Gaudi’s use of uneven lines creates the appearance of a skeletal form. Learn about the incredible and diverse history of the building, originally built for the wealthy Batllo family and later served as an insurance office. See the roof of Casa Batllo, which is called the “back of the dragon” with its curvy foundation and colourful tiles.
Down the Passeig de Gracia from Casa Batlló, in one of Barcelona’s poshest neighborhoods is Casa Mila. You will learn why this Gaudi house has earned the nickname “La Pedrera” (stone quarry). One of the final works designed by Gaudi, it is essential to see the evolution from Casa Vicens, Gaudi’s first designed house built in 1884 to Casa Mila, which was finished nearly 30 years later.
For Gaudi, Parc Guell was meant to be much more than a park. It was to be a luxury neighborhood complete with all of the best technologies, in perfect congruence with naturalist principles. The symbolism of Gaudi’s work with Parc Guell verges on conspiracy. We will learn about the connections to Catalan politics, Catholicism, Mythology and even maybe Freemasonry. Today the park boasts the best views of Barcelona from the iconic Dragon Stairway.
