The Eixample and Catalan Modernism

World-famous modernist architecture

The elegant Eixample district was created as an extension to the city in the second half of the 19th century. Conceived by Ildefons Cerdà as an egalitarian town-planning project, its unique grid presents a perfect symmetry of grand avenues and hidden inner courtyards. Here you will savour world-famous modernist architecture at its best: you will discover the renowned Paseo de Gracia and its Block of Discord, you will marvel at the outside of several iconic buildings designed by Doménech i Montaner, Puig i Cadafalch and Gaudí, and visit Casa Milà-La Pedrera or Casa Amatller from the inside. Exclusive boutiques and a celebrated dining scene will make this neighbourhood one of the highlights of your stay in Barcelona.

This is a three hour tour, but if you prefer a four-hour tour we will gladly include an additional visit to one of Gaudí’s masterpieces, be it the Sagrada Familia basilica, which is still under construction and is currently Spain’s most visited monument, or the wonderful Park Güell, originally designed as an English-style garden-city.

Policy during the Covid-19 pandemic

Although the situation currently appears to be improving, we believe that present conditions still require specific safety measures during your visit. At the same time, we understand that many are facing uncertainty when making travel plans. With this in mind, we apply flexible cancellation terms. Health, both yours and ours, is a priority.

We have introduced additional measures to ensure you feel safe when visiting with us.  Below are steps we will be undertaking to enhance hygiene standards and take into consideration the social distancing aspect in this new era of travel:

  • Guides and participants will always wear facemasks inside buildings and on transport. They are not obligatory anymore outside, but we strongly advise to wear them in crowded places.
  • We offer hand sanitizer.
  • The social distance of 1m50 will always be respected.
  • Guides will be using radio-guides and we provide listening devices with single-use headphones (you may also bring your own).
  • As we only offer private tours, you will not be sharing visits with strangers, thus allowing you to feel more comfortable.
  • We comply with all restrictions currently in force in Catalonia, and will also make sure to avoid crowds and highly frequented places.

Due to the exceptional situation worldwide, we now offer flexible cancellation terms. You can cancel your tour for free up to 24 hours before the start time.
