1) Barcelona Highlights:
- The church of Sagrada Familia (designed by Gaudi 1852-1926)
- The historic Gothic Quarter
- The Maritime Façade
- Montjuic (the hill that overlooks the city with most of the Oympic facilities).

We begin the tour looking at the outside of the Sagrada Familia. Construction that began in 1882 and still continues today. On the tour you will discover why it was built and the chronology of its construction including details of what has already been built and what has yet to be completed.

We leave the Sagrada Familia and cross the ‘extension’ of the city, designed in a grid, and go towards the historical centre where the Romans first settled about 2000 years ago. We stroll along the narrow labyrinth of streets taking in the gothic style of the cathedral and other beautiful religious and civil buildings.

A few minutes from the Gothic Quarter we come to the most famous street in Barcelona, Las Ramblas, with its Opera House, and walk down to the Christopher Columbus monument and the old port that was radically transformed by the 1992 Olympic Games.

2) Gaudi’s Legacy:
- Park Güell
- Sagrada Familia (inside and outside)
- Casa Milá (‘The Quarry’)
- Casa Batlló (‘The house of Bones’)
Gaudí, the architect who designed the Sagrada Familia (Holy Family Church), also designed what is now one of the nicest parks in the city, Park Güell. He also built houses in the “extension” of the city, of which Casa Milá (Milá’s House) and Casa Batlló (Batlló’s house) are the most popular. All of these buildings have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and with a licensed guide can be visited without standing in long queues.

In this tour you will get to know the personality, influences and motivations of Gaudi and the social and economic background of the city that he worked in at the end of 19th century and beginnings of the 20th.

3) Sporting Barcelona:
- Montjuic - The Olympic Ring
- Barcelona Football Club.

The stadium and museum The 1992 Olympic Games, that made Barcelona internationally famous, brought major improvements that transformed the city. The stadium and museum of the Futbol Club Barcelona are the second most visited attraction in Spain, after El Prado museum in Madrid.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
