Day 1

The city of Barcelona is known worldwide for the work of Gaudí, and what better way to start this “2 days in Barcelona tour” than by visiting the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. It has been under construction since 1882, and its completion is expected around 2026. It is recommended to get the tickets in advance if you want to visit it.

In a few minutes’ walk you can find another work of Catalan modernism, the Sant Pau Modernist Venue, by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.

The next stop is Park Güell, another wonder of Gaudí in an attempt to create a neighbourhood urbanization surrounded by nature. You can get there by bus (H6, D40, 24, V19) or on foot from the closest metro stops Lesseps and Vallcarca.

Next, you can visit two more works of Gaudí, La Pedrera or Casa Milà, which looks like an open quarry, and Casa Batlló, a house full of color and fantasy.

We invite you to end the first day by visiting the Spanish Village, located near the Montjuïc Fountains, which offers 117 replicas of buildings, full-scale from different Spanish communities. It was built in 1929 on the occasion of the International Exhibition.

Day 2

Today the tour begins with the visit to the Mirador de Colón, a column 60 meters high, inaugurated in 1888 at the Universal Exposition, which offers views of the city and the port. It is located at the beginning of the Rambla, a street that started with the beginning of modernity, when a walk was drawn along the medieval wall in 1766.

Then you can enjoy some of the tourist attractions that La Rambla offers. First stop is Palau Güell (UNESCO World Heritage Site), which was the private residence of Gaudí’s patron, Count Güell. Then you can continue to the Gran Teatre del Liceu, one of the largest opera houses in the world. And then continue to number 91, where the Boquería market is located, the first municipal market in the city, opened in 1840.

Next, enter the Gothic Quarter, with narrow medieval streets full of bars, restaurants, shops and various monuments that are worth visiting. Among them, we highlight:

  • The Santa María del Pi Church, in a Gothic style built on a Romanesque temple dedicated to Saints Just and Pastor.
  • The Barcelona Cathedral, built over six centuries thanks to donations from the brotherhoods and medieval guilds.
  • King’s Square, the Gothic corner that best reflects the city’s medieval past. The square is dominated by the Palau Reial Major.
  • The Church of Santa María del Mar, known as the “Ribera Cathedral”.

This church flanks the Paseo del Born, which is so fashionable today. It has some of the most modern bars in the city.

You can finish the tour on the second day at Barceloneta Beach, which was remodeled before the 1992 Olympic Games.
