We really enjoyed the walking tour, Jordi gave us in-depth information about the expansion of Barcelona, lots of stories about the modernist architects and the buildings we observed. The visual aids were useful, advice of where to eat after the tour was great and we also ended up doing a visit of La Pedrera after the tour ended. would recommend... More

I did the Gaudi walking tour and I have to agree with all the other excellent reviews. For those interested in learning about Gaudi and the urban planning of Barcelona it is a must! My guide was Jordi, who is a working architect with a passion for urban planning and Barcelona that was simply wonderful to experience. I'm not an... More

I signed up for the Gaudí walk and was so impressed (I love the depth we went into, talking about all of modernism and the expansion of Barcelona city) that I signed up for a second tour, Barcelona and the Sea, which was absolutely great too. I actually recommend doing them the other way around, because Barcelona and the Sea... More

We were lucky enough to have an almost private tour with guide Joan and one other training guide. It was fantastic to learn not only about the architecture but also their social and historical context. I particularly appreciated his use of different historical maps to explain the way the city developed. It was also great to be such a small... More

非常棒的徒步旅游。带我们走的建筑师很专业,讲解也非常细致。作为相关专业毕业的学生听了之后非常满足。从巴塞罗那的历史到现如今的问题已经解决方案,两个半小时的行程虽然不能完全概括,但是完全能学到很多了。很多建筑的设计细节,如果不是专业人员讲解还不会注意。讲解也很容易懂,非建筑专业也能听得津津有味!强烈推荐 We are three students in Landscape architecture and architecture. We had a private tour about the city, new urbanism and The of Barcelona guided by Jordi. Jordi is a very experiences architect so the tour is ver detail and professional, the best architecture tour! The tour started with historical facts of Barcelona from its walled compacted city to the... More

Our guide Joan willingly accommodated our tardiness and gave a great overview of Barcelona's beginnings, expansion, and current construction. He showed us how the architects decided to fit the new buildings in with the old and we got a good sense of an area we would have necessarily explored otherwise.

As an architect visiting the capital of Modernisme for the first time (with my non-architect wife), I wanted a tour that would give us a good introduction to Barcelona & Gaudi, so we selected that tour. From all the touring that we did during the week we were in Barcelona, my wife and I both agree that the BAW was... More

We walked along the streets and was shown several of Gaudis buildings. Martina told us about how Gaudi worked with each of the houses. As interesting as Gaudis work was the history of the development of Barcelona city. Martina did a great job and the following days, on our own, we experienced the city with our new knowlegde in mind.... More

We did the Gaudi tour with Joan and thought it was spectacular. It was a private tour with two couples, three of which are professional architectural designers. The tour took us around the Eixample and was very thorough. Joan started with an overview of the city history, from the walled Roman city, to the expansion that allowed Gaudi's influence to... More

Great for those interested in architecture and urban development. Martina took me on a Gaudi walk around the area of Passeig de Gracia and Gran Via, giving me an education on how the city grew from Cerda's plan and beyond. I learned to notice how windows on lower floors are made larger than those on higher floors, why some beautiful... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
