Our guide to Barcelona in One Day - Barcelona Highlights & Artistic Barcelona
The first part of your visit consists of a guided walking tour through the small and narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the oldest part of the city. During this early visit, we will see Las Ramblas, de Cathedral Square, The Cathedral, the Old Jewish Quarter, among other interesting places.
You will then board the bus for a panoramic tour of the city. First, drive through Passeig de Gracia to view Casa Batlo and Casa Mila before moving on to the on to the seafront where you can admire the intense changes the city underwent with the organisation of the 1922 Olympic Games. See the Olympic Village, the Olympic Port, the beach, Barceloneta - the fisherman’s quarter, the Port Vell and Plaza (square) de Colon with its famous Columbus monument which indicates the direction the great explorer sailed in when he discovered the Americas.
Continue by driving up Mount Juïc before switching modes of transport to a cable car. This is sure to be the highlight of your tour as you soak up the incredible views across the city and beyond as your cable car ascends this iconic mountain. Follow this by stopping at the MNAC viewpoint for more fabulous views of the city.
Part two begins in the afternoon and is focused on the architecture of Antoni Gaudi. Barcelona is known as the capital of Modernism and is the place where the famous architect worked and lived. What's more, this great innovator has left behind numerous treasures for the discerning tourist to discover.
Start with the Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) Basilica, Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece which is Barcelona's most famous landmark. The guide will take you on a walking tour of the exterior to admire the richly and symbolically decorated facades, where the vaults reach up to seventy meters.
Next, discover Gaudi's bizarre Park Güell which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Be careful, it's easy to get lost in the whimsical design of this bizarre but compelling public park with perfect integration of the architectural elements of nature. You will end your tour with a short trip to the Sant Pau Art Noveau Masterpiece. You will learn from your guide about the exterior of the building, about the history of the site and the ideas of the architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner.
