I joined the tour guide Ricard, a local architect, and a number of others on a well defined and vigorously presented walking tour in the center of Barcelona. Ricard was well versed about Gaudis architecture and life as well as the various aspects of Gaudis design and work. It was a lovely tour and I highly recommend it to everyone... More

Let me begin in saying that I do not like tours. My travel preference is to conduct my own research and explore, I'm not a fan of packaged commercial experiences. THAT SAID, Barcelona Architecture Walks is one of the most fantastic city exploration experiences I've ever participated in. We had very limited time in Barcelona and knew we wanted to... More

Ricard took our group of 4 English speaking tourists on a fabulous tour of the architecture of Barcelona, concentrating on the work of Gaudi. He explained things with lots of detail, but not too much. He was happy to answer our questions and he was clear with his explanations. Everyone in our group very much enjoyed the tour.

Ricard was an excellent, articulate guide! It was a pleasure to take his tour. He was a well of knowledge which made me feel he could have talked (in a captivating manner) for days before exhausting his expertise. I wish I have enough time in Barcelona to do all of his architecture walks!

This architectural tour is well worth a couple of hours of your time. It provides a great introduction to the architecture of Barcelona and the development of the city as it expanded beyond its original walls. Our guide Joan Vitoria, an architect and an educator, was passionate and enthusiastic about the architecture of Gaudi and the deveopment of Barcelona. We... More

Having lived in Barcelona for some time a few years ago, I booked this tour so that my wife could get to know the city and see some of Gaudi's most famous private buildings. We got very lucky and had a small group of only five people including our guide, two of whom happened to be guides for the Foodlovers... More

Gaudi is an intrinsic part of Barcelona, and this tour is a great way to learn about Gaudi and the city. Joan, our guide, is an architect and an educator, and it showed in his wonderful ability to share his wide-ranging knowledge. The Gaudi walk took us by three Gaudi buildings, as Joan told us about the development of Barcelona,... 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.
