Gaudi Half Day tour

Discover the most famous works of Gaudi in Barcelona

WITH
Gregorio | about the guide

Born near Barcelona in 1852, Gaudi decorated his city using his graphic and whimsical imagination. Dreamer inclined to ”avant-gardism”, he is inspired by mythology and nature to develop its work, but also by the society itself. Like Gaudi’s mosaic artworks, Barcelona is a city with many facets drawing symbiosis of a double Catalan and Spanish culture. On this tour, you will discover Gaudi's talent and Unesco World Heritage artworks. Led by a professional local guide, you will stroll in Barcelona center going first towards the iconic Sagrada Familia Cathedral, an impressive monument decorated with innumerable details, and remaining one of Gaudi's most impressive works, although it is still not completed more than 100 years after the beginning of its construction. You will continue to the Park Güell, an enchanted place with its emblematic fairy garden, its giant salamander, at the entrance and its multicolored balcony. Then, you will head in the famous Passeig de Gracia where you will discover the beautiful Casa Mila with its architectural forms borrowed from nature and colorful undulations.

Born in a small village in the middle of Spain, but raised in Barcelona, I have always been passionate about my beautiful city and its unique character; that's why I decided to go back to school to become an official tour guide after several years working for the Spanish administration in a boring office. As a tour guide, what I enjoy the most is meeting new people and creating links between people; because what makes the beauty and the interest of a city are the people; the ones who live there but also the ones who come and visit, who see the different aspects with their own eyes and always showing me a new way to see it. My specialty is to give visitors a real feeling and experience of how people live, think and act in this part of the world. I also enjoy sharing what Barcelona and Catalonia have to offer, so I always try to integrate and connect everything: what to see, to admire, the details, the history behind, the secret paths ect… Even though I have a complete knowledge of Barcelona and its different points of interests, one of my favorite theme is the architecture, which is a huge part of the city's culture.

Our morning with Gregorio was one of the best splurges! His knowledge of Gaudi and his city were unparalleled. He seemed to know what we were wanting and when I started getting tired, he slowed the pace. Thank you,Gregorio, for making our visit to your city the most memorable time.

Good morning Gregorio. We are now back in Texas after a wonderful holiday. It was so nice to spend the last week with my sister. Once again I would like to thank you for the time we spent together in Barcelona. Our two walking tours and lunch were enjoyed so much. I felt we saw and learnt quite a bit about your home city. I would like to return!!!

Our tour with Gregorio was absolutely wonderful! Having our own private guide brought so much added insight and gave us the opportunity to explore at a relaxed pace. Gregorio is very knowledgable about Goudi and the whole of Barcelona! It was like touring with a trusted friend who knows the ins and outs. All went so smoothly and there was never a wait for lines. Thank you for a very memorable tour! An absolute highlight of our time in Barcelona!
