Barcelona Architecture - Introduction

The city is the capital of Catalonia and most famous for the innovative architect Antoni Gaudi. His key buildings are Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and Casa Batlo. It is also home to the respected Barcelona Pavilion by celebrated architect Mies van der Rohe. But more recently Barcelona staged the Olympics and the city gained many strong new buildings. Buildings by Miralles, Herzog & De Meuron, Gehry, Ito, Foster and Rogers to name a few adorn the city.



Barcelona Architecture Tour – Detail from our Guide

I believe that every visit of Barcelona should start with Ciutat Vella (Old City). It is one of the oldest and biggest historical cities of Spain, having more than 2000 years of history and more than 2 km2 in area. It is a dynamic and vibrant district, consisting of several smaller districts (Gotico, Raval, Born, Ribera, etc), each one having character of its own, particular atmosphere, history and lifestyle. With its important monuments, impressive squares, churches, small narrow streets and centuries of history, it conceals many secrets





Barcelona Walking Tours

Barcelona Walking Tours should have enough time for several breaks, depending on your appetite and taste, to sample food or drinks (tapas, traditional bakeries, famous candies, ice-cream, fresh glass of horchata, etc). Visiting some of the old local markets gives different perspective of society and allows chats about Spanish and Catalan traditional food or diversity of international cuisines offered in Barcelona’s restaurants.

The Old city is exciting, always different, it provokes all senses and discovers true spirit of Barcelona!
