Passeig de Gràcia
This broad, elegant avenue, regarded as the most expensive street in Spain, was built by the wealthy Barcelonians in 1827, and they have never left. Luxury shops and design stores line the street alongside major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudí’s tiles for paving stones, as well as a myriad of grand buildings, including two of Gaudí’s houses, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà-La Pedrera. Sagrada Família Guided Tour
The jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s works, the Sagrada Família temple is the culmination of his career and synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudí wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what each entrance fee does (included in our tour price): contribute to the completion of the incredible building, begun in 1882.
