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

Very informed walk around the Gaudi points including La Pedrera. Excellent overview of the history behind the city and modernisme. Lots of ability to ask questions as the others on the tour were in training as guides.

We had a private tour with Miguel. It was such a treat to be guided by a person with so much passion and knowledge of both the architecture and the city. We loved the fact that we we had the ability to ask questions not only of the architecture but of the Catalan culture. If you are going to Barcelona... More

We booked a private Gaudi tour and were three people, all English speaking adults. Ricard was our tour guide. He is an architect, and seems to have a particular interest in city planning. He is extremely well informed and his tour is very organized and covers much about the history of Barcelona and the development of the city. I was... More

Miguel was a very interesting and enthusiastic guide. He speaks good English but at times the noise from the traffic and road works in Passeig de Gracia meant that some of our group of 19 people found it difficult to catch everything he said.

My wife and I took the Miralles architecture walk with Miguel last friday. We had our doubts whether to go for the Gaudi walk or the Miralles one, and whether to go for a walk/tour in the first place, as we don't usually have the patience to be walked around. After the walk I can easily recommend it even to... More

Our guide, Miguel Angel Borras, is an incredibly enthusiastic and passionate Architect, and he brought to life the fascinating development of Barcelona.

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.
