BARCELONA UNIQUE EXPERIENCES
We will discover all the secrets of the most visited park in Barcelona, included in 1984 by UNESCO in the World Heritage List.
I will show you all the hidden corners of the park, explaining in detail each technique used by the architect, to get to know his relationship with Gaudí’s true passion: nature, its colors, and its shapes.
This will give us the possibility to understand his work and thus come to appreciate it differently, from its most human side.
The possibility of enjoying the best views of Barcelona provides us with an excellent setting to describe some of his most important works, as he did when he supervised the work on the Sagrada Familia from the top of the Buró de las Tres Cruces.
Looking for the perfect moments to immortalize this special experience with two Polaroid snapshots.
In the end, we will look for a quiet place in the park to relax and exchange feelings about the visit. It will be a good time to evacuate all doubts, recommend places of interest, and be able to see the final result of the Polaroid photos, which will be a perfect souvenir of the visit.
I wholeheartedly recommend this experience for a solo traveller and first time visitor to Barcelona. Both Gerardo & Ana are really warm & welcoming, and if you are new to the city, I really recommend taking this tour at the beginning of your trip. That said, I am really looking forward to coming back to Barcelona & taking one of Gerardo’s Uncensored walking tours! (December, 2019)
We will tour the city with our second-hand recycled bicycles, in the workshop of Mariano, our favorite mechanic. Following our philosophy: respect nature and advocate for sustainability.
Starting at Horta, the greenest area of Barcelona. Riding down hill to Gracia, finding the first house Gaudí ever build. And also home of different artists of the city.
Eixample and Passeig De Gracia will be our background to see some of the best creations of Gaudí (Casa Batllo and La Pedrera) and also to understand Catalan Modernisme.
We will continue along the Mediterranean coast contemplating the most important changes in the metamorphosis of the city due to the 1992 Olympic Games.
We will enter the La Barceloneta area, fishermen’s home, an island inside Barcelona. A unique neighborhood, where residents have a sense of belonging like no other in the city.
Time to rest and get to know one of the 31 protected bars and wineries by the Barcelona City Council. Leo’s Bar is run by an Andalusian lady, born in Granada, for more than 60 years. Monument to the Catalan Rumba, known for its homemade tapas and its wonderful atmosphere that makes it special.
After a well-deserved break, we will leave for the heart of the Ciutat Vella and take a tour of its three neighborhoods: El Raval, Gothic Quarter, and Borne. I’ll show you three different places that may not be in the guidebooks, related to street art and anarchism.
Amazing experience!! It was my best time in Barcelona, I really get to know the city past, present and future. We went to areas that I wasn’t able to go by myself, the b-side of the city and that made this trip to Barcelona unique. Gerardo is very knowledgeable and he is very funny too. The tapas bar was SUPER LOCAL, the owner Leo is very special and makes excellent homemade tapas. We have time and I want to see a Gaudi building: Palau Güell… I definitely recommend this experience!!! (January, 2020)
Starting at Port Ginesta in Castelldefels on board of a sail boat, towards the city of Barcelona. In the time it takes us to get to the city we are going to explain the history of the fishermen who lived around the ports of Catalunya and it will be the best time to taste some of the typical tapas and drinks of the area, such as bread with tomato, the anchovies in vinegar and the Catalan cava. Here we will make a brief introduction explaining the general history of the region.
Once we see the city we will talk about some of the civilizations that populated the city historically, such as the Romans, the Jews and the House of Barcelona, in order to learn about the places that we can observe from the sea. Also talking about the Spanish Civil War and the changes that took place during the 1992 Olympic Games, without a doubt the most important event of the 20th century.
We are going to learn the history of the “bastaixos”, tireless workers who made possible the construction of one of the few purely Gothic churches in Europe: the Basilica of Santa María del Mar, also known as “the church of the workers”.
