What you'll do

Would you like to know more about the work of the famous architect Antoni Gaudí and about Catalan Modernism?
As an architect and admirer of Gaudí and Modernism, I propose a tour around Eixample and Passeig de Gràcia! Along the route you will understand why Gaudí's work is so unique and learn about Catalan Modernism, an architectural and artistic movement from the late 19th / early 20th century. Through the work of the three main architects of this period, Antoni Gaudí, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, you will learn to identify modernist symbols and elements. I will also introduce you to Plan Cerdá (Ensanche). Along the way we will take a break in a special place!

Great walk with right balance between learning and having fun. It didn't feel like tourism, but really like a stroll with a local who knows and loves her city. Highly recommended.

Fue una experiencia interesantísima. Me dió la impresión de que Bianca es una experta en el tema, conoce muy bien Barcelona y que se divirtió tanto como yo. Estuvo siempre dispuesta a contestar preguntas, conoce todas las respuestas (las triviales y divertidas, pero también las especializadas) Estupendo tur para arquitectos y también para profanos.

Foi uma experiência acima das minhas expectativas. Esse tour me deu uma visão da cidade muito mais rica do que eu tinha antes, porque Bianca é didática, passa muitas informações interessantes e ao mesmo tempo é muito divertida! Ela tem conhecimento amplo a respeito do modernismo e de Gaudí, mas o que faz a diferença é a paixão que ela demonstra pelo assunto e por viver em Barcelona. Altamente recomendável pra quem gosta de ir além do turismo tradicional.

Architecture lovers will find a full walk about seeing dazzling work from a unique group of Catalonia architects. Bianca provides history as well as her interpretations as she is a professional architect. She also includes the social and economic aspects of the era during which these masterpieces were made. Next visit I will take her tour again. The walk makes you happy. - J. Haas, Architect & son Robert

Bianca loves her new hometown of Barcelona, and her enthusiasm carries over into her discussions of the architecture and design of the city. We all learned a great deal and had a great time.
