BARCELONA WALKING TOURS
Our Barcelona Walking Tours are destined to small groups of 10 people max, that want to know in depth and without censors the most interesting Barcelona. Walking through the streets of Barcelona you are going to learn history, architecture, politics, art and the non turistics attractions, those which the guides books never talk about. .
We will discover the most influential and famous person of Barcelona: Antoni Gaudí. Talking about his most important techniques and works, and also show the human side of Gaudí in order to get to know his work and understand, not only the metamorphosis that the city suffered during the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, but also it will help us understand the present Barcelona, for example why exists the Catalan independence movement.
Walking through Ciutat Vella where he began his work and took his first steps as an architect and the Eixample where he developed all his potential to finish in the second most visited monument in Europe: La Sagrada Familia.
Starting at the Plaza Real to know one of his first works, to continue at El Raval with the Palau Güell. We will take the subway to enter the Paseo de Gràcia and be able to observe his two most important and well-known houses: Batlló and La Pedrera, and also some contemporaries of Catalan Modernism like Puig i Cadafalch and Domenech i Muntaner. Finishing at the Sagrada Familia explaining all the details that make this church unique in the world.
Gerardo was an excellent tour guide and offered a unique and (un)censored look at Gaudí. Specifically the exclusive info he provided about La Sagrada Família, the kind of info you won’t hear or see inside the church. Additionally, is super honest and completely open and willing to talk about the magical culture and history of Gaudí and the greater Catalan region. I highly suggest taking this tour before going to any Gaudí exhibit as the info you gain from this tour will enhance those experiences. All-in-all this was an A+ experience all thanks to Gerardo!

We will visit the most multicultural, dangerous, and exciting neighborhood of Barcelona: El Raval. Getting to know its history and learn about the uncensored underground Barcelona.
Exploring the most interesting places of El Raval starting at Plaza Catalunya, where we are going to talk about the history of the city, and then enter and explore the small streets of Raval. Learning about the different community and political movements such as anarchism, the independence movement, and squatter societies.
Talking about topics such as sex, drugs, street art, rumba catalana and immigration, as we go deeper into the most emblematic streets of the neighborhood.
Gerardo offered us a unique experience by showing us uncommon places in Barcelona. He told us a lot about the history and showed us extraordinary street art. After the tour, he even sat with us together to have a beer in his favourite bar and gave us a list of his preferred restaurants. We would definitely recommend his tour! (May 2019)
