History & Architecture
A PREMIUM EXPERIENCE
Explore Barcelona in one day with a local private guide in a chauffered tour
Do you only have one day to visit all Barcelona? We offer you an unforgettable day to discover the city. This is the reason why the Park Güell, the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, the Modernist facades of Passeig de Gracia and the Sagrada Familia are the highlights of this itinerary to explore the essentials of Barcelona in one day.
You will begin the discovery of Barcelona in one day, with a visit of the Park Güell. Its colors, its forms and its panoramic view of the city will amaze you. This is the last work of the Gaudi-Güell tandem and despite being a bankrupt project, Park Güell has left a unique mark in Barcelona. Viaducts, gardens and buildings inspired by the story of Hansel and Gretel will transport you to a fantastic universe.
How is the visit of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona?
After the Park Güell, we propose a stroll through the Gothic Quarter to discover the history of this exciting city.
The driver will take us to the entrance of the district and from there we will take a walk. The facade of the Barcelona Cathedral, the King’s Square with its Roman remains, Saint James Square (or Sant Jaume) and the old Jewish Quarter will guide you to the Ribera district. This is where the Saint Catherine market is located. This is an excellent area to stop for lunch.
Will we see Gaudi’s work in Barcelona?
Of course! In fact, after lunch, a modernist afternoon awaits us in this Barcelona in one day tour! A panoramic view of Passeig de Gracia while admiring Modernist houses will help us understand the economic and the social moment. The facades of Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller and Casa Lleo and Morera (all three are part of the Manzana de la Discordia) will show you the wealth and power of the Barcelona bourgeoisie at the beginning of the 20th century.
Will be visit the Sagrada Familia?
Absolutely! We will end the visit of Barcelona in one day with a visit of the Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí. This is the masterpiece of the architect. You will decode the facades, marvel at the interior, go through the 137 years of construction and you will end up as a child in the school!
With your local guide in Barcelona, you will understand why she is still under construction and who had the idea to build it. Gaudi’s project and the symbolism of the Nativity façade will lead you into an almost futuristic interior (or astonishing, according to one of our clients). This is where you will admire its tree-shaped columns, its huge stained glass windows and the singularity of its sculptures.
The second part of the visit of the Sagrada Familia will allow you to admire old photos of the construction and in addition, you will end up like children, in a school. In fact, it is a school built by Gaudi to give education to the sons and daughters of the workers and it also shows us the social side of the architect.
The Barcelona in one day itinerary will end at your accommodation and if you are in a cruise ship you will be dropped off at the port.

Anna was great. We toured with 2 adults and a 13 year old. She answered every question, gave a great overview and knew everything about the cathedral. Her english is excellent and she made learning fun. I would highly recommend to everyone for her vast knowledge of Barcelona and the cathedral.
