Ricard took us on an amazing 3 hour Gaudi tour. Very enjoyable and informative. What a great day! We then went on a two hour tour of the old City and the waterfront which was excellent and fun. We recommended Ricard to another family who loved the tour as well.

We learnt so much whilst exploring the streets of Exaimple. We would definitely recommend this, ideally as the first thing you do on arriving in Barcelona. Joan was so enthusiastic that the time flew by and we were sad to find the tour had finished. Thank you so much, Joan!

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour but it is for people who enjoy walking a fair distance. It was a small group and our guide was very knowledgable. She shared so much interesting information and showed us little areas we would never have found. We would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the Gaudi architecture.

This is a tour that I would highly recommend for anyone living in / visiting Barcelona! Joan is a brilliant guide, he is friendly, knowledgeable, passionate and engaging.

We had a great time on our Gaudi walk with Ricard and learned a lot about Barcelona's history, and of course Gaudi. I highly recommend this walk if you are planning to visit Gaudi's main sites. It gave us a great foundation of knowledge. I think the pricing is a great value for what you get. If I visit Barcelona... More

Thanks EEpstein, we understand our Regular Walking Tours as a service to the city and its visitors... most of our Regular Walks have 2-6 person (as you could check in our gallery), the perfect size to start a fresh conversation through our city and its architecture. It would be a pleasure to walk together soon! More

I went only a Barcelona Architecture Walks tour with Joan recently. It was a brilliant way to understand Barcelona's history and development. It helped me to appreciate the invaluable contribution Gaudi and some of the other modernisme architects made to Barcelona. I would heartily recommend the tour, even if you're not deeply interested in architecture.

We loved our Gaudi walk with Jordi, who was very friendly, knowledgable and interesting to listen to. We learnt so much about how the city of Barcelona was formed and developed, with fascinating insights and context for appreciating Gaudi's work.

This review is long over-due however on a recent visit to Barcelona I had the pleasure of taking the "Barcelona and Gaudi" tour with Jordi offered by Barcelona Architectural Walks. Jordi provided both historical and geographic context to better understand Barcelona's development and how Gaudi’s Architecture impacted the city's landscape and culture. He is an incredibly knowledgeable guide with an... More

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.
