This was one of the best things I did on my trip to Barcelona, aside from eat. My wife is an interior designer and is keenly interested in architecture -- whereas I don't know much about architecture but enjoyed it just as much. It's a great walk through a beautiful part of the city and it's n extremely interesting, in-depth... More

On April 27, 2015, our group of former classmates from SYA so enjoyed the Enric Miralles architectural tour led by Miguel Angel Borras. Miguel did an incredible job of introducing the old and the new elements of Barcelona and how they are "melting" together. He brought the architecture to life for us with his own passion for his work and... More

We had an amazing time touring in and around the Gotic area of the city. Learning about architecture, history, and city planning are great ways to discover a new city. The walks are lead by a local architect in small groups, which gave our tour a very personal feel. I would highly recommend these tours to anyone interested in exploring... More

I took two of the walks (Enric Miralles and Rethinking Cities) and came away with a much greater appreciation of how Barcelona is renewing itself. The two walks were each lead by young architects who communicated clearly in English their passion and knowledge. I came away from enjoyable strolls through lesser visited neighborhoods of Barcelona with a deeper knowledge of... More

We were a corporate group of 10 people that enjoyed this walk together. It was nice to get to know Barcelona in another way through the walk "ReThinking Cities". The insight to the history and how things are planned and developed up until today was very interesting. To learn about the philosophy for the area today and how they consciously... More

I really enjoyed my walk! It was what I was looking for: very insightful, highly interesting and definitely different than the normal tourist walk! I also got so many ideas for my next trip to Barcelona!

Jordi gave a great tour of the new neighborhood and buildings by the Agbar Building. His enthusiasm for the area and city were apparent. His presentation included maps and pictures so that we could easily picture the where's and why on how Barcelona has developed as it has. His observations and comments on how and why these new buildings were... More

My husband and I spent a gorgeous afternoon on an architectural walk with Ricard last week and I thoroughly recommend that others share this excellent experience. Richard, an architect by training, was full of rich, historical stories that allowed us to see the city through a different lens. We did the Barcelona and the Sea tour and I would definitely...

Miguel scheduled 2 tours for me that were spectacular! The first tour, RETHINKING CITIES, was led by Jordi and explored the history of the city as we walked through the evolutionary development of the city as centered around Plaça de les Glories. Jordi brought pictures, personal insights, and a strong level of urban knowledge based on his recent studies. It... More

We are not fans of typical tours, but this tour was not typical. A very small group with a very knowledgeable guide, Ricard, made this tour a great experience. It included information about architecture in general, the history of Barcelona, and city planning. Our tour focused on Gaudi and was a good way to be introduced to this city. We'd... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
