Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Workshop

Feel like Gaudi 08

Join this special Gaudí experience! Learn about modernism and the most famous Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí, during a two hours walking tour. Have your personal hands-on experience in the workshop of MOSAICCOS where you will create your own souvenir in Gaudí´s mosaic style.

Two hours Gaudí and Modernism Walking Tour

What is Modernism and why did it develop? Do you know similar movements in other countries? Why does the roof of Casa Batlló look like the back of a dragon? Our guide, Christian, will answer these questions and more during the walk along the famous Gaudí houses and the old town. Discover additional buildings from that era in the medieval neighbourhood of El Born. Get an introduction to Barcelona’s history and legends while strolling through its labyrinth of little streets.

One hour hands-on workshop in the Gaudí technique

The walk will lead us to Angelika´s workshop where you will learn the revolutionary technique named “TRENCADÍS”. As you will have discovered during the walk, this technique – using materials such as shards of glass, ceramics or mirrors – can be found on all of Gaudí´s work. After a short introduction Angelika will show you the basics of the technique, the handling of the tools and how to create your first masterpiece of a trencadís mosaic such as a refrigerator magnet or the top of a box.

This Gaudí experience will leave you with an unforgettable memory and a unique reminder of your trip to Barcelona. Feel like Gaudí during this walking tour and the hands-on workshop.

Cassie Carroll (Seattle, WA, USA): “What a wonderful afternoon!”

Our family (teens and their parents) so enjoyed our private tour of Barcelona with Christian! He is incredibly knowledgeable about Gaudí and “modernism” architecture. We traipsed around the city, stopping to look at fabulous architecture and hearing great stories along the way. Christian is a wonderful guide, had lots to share and made the two hours fly by. After our leisurely, two hour promenade, Christian handed us off to Angelika and we made lovely mosaics in her studio in an hour! We had our own private space, were offered to either make a magnet or decorate the top of a small box. We all chose the magnets and had such fun creating a pattern out of glass or ceramic tiles, a la Gaudí! We left on time with our beautiful work of art. We would all HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful and unique experience! Thank you for such a fun filled and enjoyable afternoon!
