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

We were the only ones on this extensive, most interesting tour. Seeing things through the eyes of an architect is especially fun in a city like Barcelona. We started at the Cathedral and ended, three hours later) in Barceloneta, having traced our way through the history of Barcelona and the sea's impact on its development. Excellent in all aspects.

It was an absolute pleasure having Jordi guide a small group of us through a modern and vibrant precinct within the Barcelona & The Future City tour. The walking tour provides an excellent contrast to the visitation of older buildings throughout the city and is a must for anyone that loves building, cities and architecture. My only regret is not... More

Jordi met us at the agreed upon spot right on time. A small group helped make the experience personal as he had time to address everyone's questions thoroughly. Not only knowledgeable about his city but also passionate about its history and its future, Jordi offers excellent insights into the remarkable buildings selected for the tour but also about the circumstances...

Jordi met our group of Ramblers Holidays folk and took us on a very interesting and informative walk around the city, showing us various important buildings of differing types of architecture. Learned a lot about the history of Barcelona and the influence of Gaudi and his architectural style. Well worth taking a session in next time you visit.

Our guide, Jordi, was excellent-friendly, knowledgeable and excited to teach us about the architectural basis of the city. It was a different perspective than our other tours and I highly recommend it.

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.
