I took a chance to get more information on well-known Gaudi architecture and also see how city now develops and what modern trends it sets. For modern architecture I enjoyed individual tour with Joan, he showed the place and it was a very good combination of formal information and informal exchange of views on the trends. Obviously some nitty-gritty details... More

We went on 4 different tours in Spain and this was the most unique and informative. Our tour guide, Martina, had a degree in architectural restoration and was both knowledgeable and passionate about the subject.

Our tour was very informative and enjoyable. Joan provided background on the historical and cultural context for the style of architecture of Gaudi and his contemporaries. We particularly liked the hidden laneways and gardens that we did not discover on our own walks and bike rides. The tour was conducted in a professional and flexible manner by Joan who was... More

Loved the tours. Guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Our group had 4 adults (60s and 30s) and a 6 year old. Not for every young kid, but our granddaughter enjoyed it. July is very hot in Barcelona and it involved alot of walking. But walking is the best way to really see the city.

It was a great walking tour of Barcelona which put a lot of the rich architecture in context of the time. It added a depth and understanding when we then went on to look t the interior of Gaudi's buildings. Ricard was personable, informative and I would highly recommend it.

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

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.
