Tour Sagrada Familia:
We will start our day visiting the symbol of Barcelona and the best-known masterpiece of Antoni Gaudì as well: the Sagrada Familia Cathedral.
This is the artistic last will of Antoni Gaudì and a sort of manifesto for its aesthetic. Its bizarre architecture shows the poetic of Catala Modernism at its climax.
Our professional guide will explain you everything about it, and you will begin to make a sense out of its impressive and weird geometries. We will visit the interiors where its vaults reach seventy meters. After that, we will enter the Sagrada Familia Museum, where you can find a lot of useful information and interesting curiosities about Antoni Gaudì and his works.
Then we will walk through Avenida Gaudì to reach the Sant Pau Art Nouveau site. This was a simple hospital that became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is considered the best work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the other big name of Catalan Modernism than Antoni Gaudì.
The structure is the most famous public building of Catalan Modernism and it was a fully functioning hospital until June 2009. Then they opened a brand new hospital near it and the Sant Pau complex was mostly converted into a museum.
We will visit the Sant Salvador Pavillion exhibition spaces. There we will do a journey into the history of medicine. With our local guide, you will discover how people take care of themselves during past centuries and it wasn't always pleasant!
On the upper floor, we will visit an exhibition about the life and the work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner. You will get to know his genius and the fascinating theory behind his artworks.
Take this tour and explore the Catalan Modernism, both its secular and religious aspects!
Don't miss the chance to discover the artistic soul of Barcelona.
