Barcelona: A modernist jewel. Nature and architecture living in harmony

Art and culture route
Stay in Barcelona and fall madly in love with Catalan modernism by visiting the structures created by the architect Antoni Gaudí in the early 20th century, structures that initiated Catalonia's cultural revival. Then journey though the city at night to discover it under the moonlight. 

Barcelona's best known dragon
Allow yourself to be captivated by the extraordinary beauty of Güell Park, a World Heritage Site, with BCN Shop's guided tour. Head up The Dragon Stairway, - feasting your eyes on the what is the park's most popular piece - up to the historical area to see the Sala Hipóstila, the Pórtico de la Lavandera or finally the Plaza de la Naturaleza, with its magnificent panoramic views of Barcelona.

Gaudí's magnum opus
Uncover all the secrets of the Sagrada Família, the work to which Gaudí dedicated more than forty years of life to become Barcelona's defining symbol. In a one-hour tour given by the church's very own guides, you'll learn how the genius architect's love of nature inspired him to design the façades and the interior of the basilica.

The largest modernist monument in the world
Nearby, the Hospital de Sant Pau, Lluís Domènech i Montaner's most important work, is the world's largest modernist monument and, without a doubt, the least known in all of Barcelona. Delve into the guided tour of one of Europe's oldest health institutions to admire the domes, façades, sculptures and windows. Then journey through the underground tunnels taking you to the gardens.

From the Olympics to Camp Nou
If you're a sports fan who loves to play as much as watch, you're going to love this. With WeBarcelona we'll visit the city's most symbolic sporting facilities, and we'll do it in style: on an 'eBike', an easy-to-ride electric bicycle. The Estadi Olímpic, the Palau Sant Jordi, the Torre Calatrava and Camp Nou will be our destinations. And on the way? The best views in the city! 

Discover the city under moonlight
Partial to a bit of running? This is the plan for you! Running Tours Barcelona organises night-time running trips over 15 km of the city, passing modernist houses, churches, ancient villages and even Montjuïc, with its extraordinary views of the city and the sea. But if you're looking for something a bit more serene, Trip4real offers an exclusive visit to the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar basilica. You'll uncover secrets of this Gothic treasure that are usually hidden from your average tourist, rounding the evening off with spectacular panoramic views of the city. The perfect ending to a day of pure Barcelona.
