Experience an architecture treasure hunt in Barcelona and discover the best of Antonio Gaudí’s whimsical works.
First, visit Colònia Güell, a modernist village built in the late 19th century to house factory workers. The highlight is the Gaudí Church Crypt, which combines all of his innovations into one unusual structure.
Then head to La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s most famous masterpiece and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Construction of the church began in 1882 and remains ongoing, with an estimated completion date of 2026.
Continue your tour through the Eixample District to see more Gaudí architecture, including the celebrated Passeig de Gràcia.
Finally, explore the incredible Casa Battló on a guided tour. The building was renovated by Gaudí in the early 20th century to exemplify his unique modern style. There are practically no corners or straight lines – even the walls and the roof are curved.
