On this walking tour of Catalonian Barcelona, you'll explore one of the most livable cities in the world on foot with a local guide who knows all the best spots. Known for its sunny weather, pristine beaches, delicious Mediterranian cuisine and laidback lifestyle, Barcelona is also a haven for lovers of dynamic architecture and Modernist history. You'll explore the Modernist influence of famed architect Antoni Gaudi on this incredible city and learn about him, his life, his work and his predecessors. Starting in Plaza Catalunya, one of the biggest plazas in Spain, you'll first walk along the most iconic street of Barcelona, learning about the Passeig de Gracia district and mingling with the locals. See the famous food market and dip into Barcelona's bustling food culture, before seeing some local architectural jewels like Mercado El Nacional, Casa Amatller and Rambla de Gaudi. Learn what Modernism meant for Barcelona as you see the incredible Casa Batlló , maybe the most famous house in the city, and learn about Gaudi's life in Spain in the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Known as the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism, his works have a highly individualised style, which you'll witness in his works throughout the city. See Casa Mila, known as La Pedrera for its rough unconventional aesthetic, and bask in the individuality of the last private residence designed by Gaudi. Hop on the metro as the locals do to Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's most well-known work and a city icon. Enter his universe as you walk the base of the largest unfinished Catholic church in the world and immerse yourself in history and local culture at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take it all in, take plenty of photos and then head to the leafy Rambla district for a relaxing stroll. Stop for a drink at a local, family-owned bar and because no tour of Barcelona would be complete without indulging in some local food, you'll also be treated to tapa. As you toast to your adventure, you'll come to realise why Spanish culture is so heavily focused on its food. End it all at the picturesque Hospital de San Pau, a beautiful example of Modernist architecture built between 1901 and 1930 by Lluis Domenech i Montaner. This is Barcelona!
