The tour lasts about three hours and takes you to one of the city's architectural gems
, the Sagrada Família. The genius of Catalan art nouveau, Antoni Gaudí
, dedicated the last years of his life to this masterpiece which is now a world-famous Barcelona landmark. This tour will reveal each and every detail of the different areas of the church and give you a greater understanding of Gaudí's concept and desire to bequeath to Barcelona an iconic place of worship replete with symbolism.
You will start with a drive along Passeig de Gràcia avenue, which has two of Gaudí?s most famous works: Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.
