Gaudí & Barcelona Legends

Christian is one of the best Airbnb experience guides I have ever had! He was so welcoming and you could tell he loves to share his knowledge about Barcelona, architecture, history – really many topics”, Mallory (Cambridge/UK in February 2020)

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!
