The Sagrada Familia and the Torre Bellesguard: Gaudi essential
You will discover the world of Gaudí while starting with a visit of the Sagrada Familia with your local private guide of Barcelona. It is the masterpiece of the architect and the most visited monument in Spain. Antoni Gaudi began working there almost at the beginning of his career and the famous church is his architectural testament.
Then you will know everything about the last house of Gaudi still inhabited: the House Bellesguard (Torre Bellesguard). This is a work with a long history that you will unveil from the hand of your Barcelona guide. And in addition, you will have a 360 degree view of the city of Barcelona.
When asked about Gaudi’s inspiration, he often spoke to nature and often defines himself as Christian and Catalan. This tour invites you to discover this duality that was the essence of Antoni Gaudi. In addition, your guide will reveal the character of Gaudi and the time he had in his projects. For example, to build Casa Bellesguard, he had asked Barcelona City Hall to move a street!
How does this Gaudi Essential tour work?
You will meet your guide either at your accommodation or at the meeting point agreed. Then, you will enter the Sagrada Familia without having to queue thanks to our guide’s badge. With the help of your Barcelona guide, you will decode facades, understand their symbolism and marvel at architectural innovations. The light of the windows, the futuristic shape of its columns and the dimensions of the temple will leave you speechless.
The second part of this guided tour is Torre Bellesguard. It is a very personal project of the architect and today Bellesguard is the only work of the architect still inhabited. Its medieval forms and its contrast of colors will show you an original, innovative and brave Gaudi.
Do I have to buy Sagrada Familia tickets in advance?
No, you do not have to buy them. You will see that during the booking process the amount of the tickets is added to the final bill. In this way we can buy them in advance and avoid capacity problems. On the day of the visit, we will use the guides entrance. That means you will not need to queue.
How to discover Gaudi’s work in Barcelona?
In Catalonia there are about fourteen works by Gaudi, most of them in Barcelona. In addition to the Sagrada Familia, there is Casa Batlló and Casa Milà both located in Passeig de Gracia. Anyway, if you want to think outside the box, we strongly recommend visiting Torre Bellesguard, Palau Güell and Casa Vicens with a French speaking guide in Barcelona. If you want to enjoy the views of Barcelona, a visit to Park Güell is an excellent option.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!
We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!
We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
