Our tour guide was Jordi and he was absolutely amazing. Extremely knowledgable about all things Gaudí. If you are thinking about taking an architecture tour, take it with Barcelona Architecture Walks because it is led by real architects who know what they are talking about. Jordi spoke perfect English and answered all of our questions (and we had quite a... More

We took our teenage daughter on this tour and had the time of our lives. Barcelona Architecture Walks offers several theme-based tours of the city, and we happened to have chosen Barcelona & the Sea. In addition to being entertained by our charming host, Ricard, we were able to connect with the city, its culture, history, and its built environments... More

I enjoyed the tour I took with Miguel Angel! He gave us a lot of interesting information and fun facts. When walking for one site to another, we were able to chat, ask questions about the things you see along the way, interchange thoughts,.. which made it very relaxing. They are very knowledgable and passionate which gives the possibility to... More

It's great to be given a deeper historical context to the city structure from the beginning of the trip in order to enjoy the city and his culture with a broader view.

We had a young architect Joan guide us around Barcelona. He was a delightful guide, and covered much more than just the architecture, putting it in a cultural and political context. He was able to answer all our questions and broaden our perspectives. We did a Gaudi walk, and learned an awful lot. I really think one shouldnt visit Barcelona... More

My husband and I took a wonderful Gaudi BAW tour with Martina on our first morning in Barcelona. It was a terrific introduction to the city -- she focused on Gaudi, as the tour promised, but in the much larger context of Barcelona's urban development of the past 150 years, along with other major architectural trends, She took us to...

This tour is perfect for urbanists visiting Barcelona who want more than the typical tourist version of the city. I am a doctorate student in architecture and urban planning and had previously signed up for Gaudi walking tours in the city, but I highly recommend BAW over all others you will be able to find downtown. I went on the... More

These walks are the best way to understand not only Barcelona's urban development but also the intrinsic characteristics of its beautiful architecture. If you walk through the city by yourself you will be delighted by its buildings but, if you do a BAW you will be amazed by understanding Barcelona's chances to host such representative buildings and how come the...

I joined Joan for an architectural walk in May, it's a birthday gift for myself. Joan is humble and has a lot of patience. As a guide who is also an architect, he showed us most of Gaudi's work in Barcelona and I had a chance to know Gaudi and his work more in depth. He started the guide with... More

Martina was a great guide -informative, interesting and patient. He brought Barcelona alive for me. The tour starts by walking to see some of the older city buildings and she weaves in the story of the city's development. She explains how the architecture and planning was influenced by the social and political context of the time. The experience felt like... 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.
