Gaudí & Barcelona Legends

Gaudí & Barcelona Legends

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 roof top? 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!

Here is what our customers say about this tour.

Marjorie Miles, San Francisco, California/USA

We are a family of 4 (10 and 14 yr olds) who wanted a unique experience in Barcelona, so booked the Gaudí Tour and it was AMAZING! Christian started us off with a walking tour of some of Gaudí's (Casa Mila, Casa Batllo) and works by other architects of his time. He gave us a great overview of Gaudí--answering every one of our questions--and made the walking tour interesting to all 4 of us (not an easy feat, as it was booked on our second day there and we were jetlagged). We LOVED this experience and would highly recommend it to everyone who wants something really special from Barcelona. Thanks so much, Christian. You made our stay extra special!

Cassie Carroll, Seattle, Washington/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. We would all HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful and unique experience! Thank you for such a fun filled and enjoyable afternoon!
