Gaudí & Barcelona Legends
“Christian led us beyond the typical tourist magnets to the more hidden gems of this beautiful city. You could always tell he was enthusiastic – a spark that ignited. So the two hours flew by. And we see the city with different eyes, which has so much more to offer than Gaudí. Highly recommended and anything less than the full five stars would be an insult. Thank you for the tour!“, Sven Colling (Germany in March 2023)
Immerse with us into captivating legends from the past that can be seen everywhere in the city once you know them. Understand how architects like Gaudí were inspired by them and left a lasting impact on Barcelona.
Why is there a dragon on the rooftop? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? Where is the House of Bones? What´s the legend behind the Catalan flag? How to put this into the context of the current independence movement?
During this two-hours walk we will make the connection from medieval Catalan history and legends to what inspired Gaudí and other architects when designing the residential buildings along the grand boulevard of Passeig de Gracia. From street pavement to lamp posts – all have a story that we want to tell you!
If you love history brought to life by passionate storytellers and you want to enjoy the intimacy of a small group then this is your experience. After these two hours you will discover details you have not noticed before. See the city with different eyes!
