What makes this tour special
From Gaudí to bullfighting arenas, this tour paints an exquisite picture of everything one associates with a vacation in Spain. On your tour, you will:
Explore the Casa Amatller, a stunning example of modernist building design.
Admire one of Gaudí’s best creations, the Casa Batlló.
Experience the serenity of the cloisters.
Visit La Monumental from the outside, the last bullfighting arena in commercial operation in Catalonia.
The Dreta de L'Eixample neighbourhood was built in the 1800’s as the city began to outgrow its medieval centre. A distinguished Catalan engineer designed the neighbourhood and it has become a very popular residence for the wealthiest citizens in the city.
Your tour will begin in the so-called Illa de la Discòrdia or “block of discord” in English – in which you will see some of the finest examples of modernist architecture, including The Casa Amatller and the Casa Batlló, known locally as the “house of bones." You will then visit Barcelona's newest Basilica, Conception Church, with your guide, and explore the summery cloisters at your own pace. Finally, after a stroll through the neighbourhood, you will see the Monumental, the arena which hosted the last bullfight in Catalonia.
