For a general introduction to the history of Barcelona, your coach travels through the Barceloneta fishing quarter, up Colon Avenue, and past the Columbus monument. You will enter the upper Eixample area where the Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) Church is located. Take photos of this marvelous structure, unique in both artistic and architectural form. Outside and inside, your guide will show you the church—the most famous of all Gaudí’s creations. The tour continues to Güell Park, just 15 minutes away. The park is a unique representation of Gaudí’s imagination and work. Return to the city along the Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona’s widest avenue, with many Modernist buildings designed by Gaudí and other important architects of the time. You will stop at La Pedrera, also known as Casa Milá. View from outside this masterpiece of Gaudí’s art. End your tour with an understanding of the special relationship between Gaudí the architect, and the city.
