Our Walking Tours are destined to groups between 1 and 10 people tops, that want to know in depth and without censors the most interesting Barcelona.
We will discover the most influential and famous person of Barcelona: Antoni Gaudí. We will describe his most important techniques and works, and also we will show the human 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 realize the current Barcelona, for example the Catalan independence movement.
Walking throw 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 in the Raval with the Palau Guell. We will take the subway to enter the Paseo de Gràcia and be able to observe its 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. We will finish in 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 unique info he provided about La Sagrada Família, the kind of info you won’t hear or see inside the church. Additionally, Gerardo is super honest and completely open and willing to talk about the unique 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 form 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. We will get to know its history and speak about the uncensored underground Barcelona.
We will explore the streets of Raval starting with Plaza Catalunya, where we will talk a little about the history of the city, and then enter and explore the small streets of Raval. We talk about the different community and political movements such as anarchism, the independence movement, and squater societies.
We will touch on 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)
