What you'll do

Go deep into Art Nouveau architecture with this visit to my family's home, Casa Ramos, a Catalan Modernist gem, where I live. Steeped in history, every exposed surface is abundant in Art Nouveau details, original tiles, stained glass windows, and spectacular "Arabesque’ features." It's even been the location for an award-winning Almodóvar film. We'll end with tea and cakes around my piano. You don't need to be into modernism or architecture to visit my fantastic house.

This was such an interesting and personal experience. Visiting with Sean and his family really felt like a direct connection to the early modernistic designers. They also shared juicy celebrity stories! This was one of my favorite tours of my week in Barcelona.

I strongly recommend this experience, Barcelona’s modernism goes beyond Gaudí work and Casa Ramos is a fine an example. The tour through the house is done by the owners who are also architects, you cannot find better docents! It is an unique experience of learning and making connections with authentic Barcelona’s residents. The family makes you feel welcome and they are truly passionate about the house and its history.

A really unique and great experience. His parents were terrific. We loved hearing the stories about the people involved in filming movies at their home and the film of the commercial made with Salvador Dali. We loved the apartment. These are interesting, artistic people who had something to tell us from their special perspectives. The home itself is very special artistically. I am glad they have taken on the responsibility of being stewards of this beautiful place.

This intimate architectural deep dive pulls travelers off crowded corners and tour buses and ushers them into an encounter with architectural Gaudí-era wonder and the family that has attentively loved it back to life. Sean’s thorough-going knowledge of Barcelona’s centuries of design innovation and built-world intricacies makes a fascinating tour. My time in this grand house and its lush garden—which has served as the backdrop for award-winning indie films and scores of photo sessions—gave me entry into the Barcelona few travelers are lucky enough to see. Fantastic!

Excellent, excellent experience, particularly if you are interested in architecture/art. The experience is hosted by a family of architects/artists who have lived in a landmark modernist building for 30 years and have restored their living space it to its original glory. Consequently, they are able to give you a unique perspective on modernism.
