Passeig de Gracia, this broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudi?s tiles for pavements and a myriad of grand buildings including two of Gaudi?s houses: Casa Batllo, and Casa Mila (facade).
The jewel in the crown of Gaudi's works, the Sagrada Familia basilica is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudi wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that?s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building, which started construction in 1882.
Next, we will embark on the Montjuic portion of the tour. First we will visit the waterfront, which is a living example of how the very old can be successfully combined with the very new: Port Vell with its dock warehouses and the Barcelona Royal Shipyard have been preserved and incorporated into a remodeled recreational area, with the aquarium, the World Trade Center, restaurants and cinemas.
Next we will visit the Montjuic Hill, with its parks, art galleries, museums, and the 1992 "Olympic Ring", of sports stadiums also provides spectacular views over the city. We will visit the charming Poble Espanyol and have free time for lunch there.
