Sagrada Familia

How does it take nearly 150 years to build a church with today’s modern technology? When you design one as intricate, precise and magnificent as Gaudi did with the Sagrada Familia, it becomes completely understandable. The church is extremely complex, with 18 spires ascending in height representing the Virgin Mary, the four evangelists, the twelve apostles, with the tallest representing Jesus Christ. Once the tallest spire is completed, the Sagrada Familia will be the tallest church in the world. Your guide will go in-depth describing the interior, exterior and beyond of Gaudi’s still unfinished masterpiece.

Casa Batlló

Next your guide will continue the journey into the brilliant and artistic mind of Antoni Gaudí. The house-turned-museum Casa Batllo is the ultimate representation of Gaudi’s unique style. Called the “House of Bones, Gaudi’s use of uneven lines creates the appearance of a skeletal form. Learn about the incredible and diverse history of the building, originally built for the wealthy Batllo family and later served as an insurance office.View the roof of Casa Batllo, which is called the “back of the dragon” with its curvy foundation and colorful tiles.

Casa Milà and Casa Vicens

Down the Passeig de Gracia from Casa Batlló, in one of Barcelona’s poshest neighborhoods is Casa Mila. Your guide will explain why this Gaudi house has earned the nickname “La Pedrera” (stone quarry). One of the final works designed by Gaudi,, it is essential to see the evolution from Casa Vicens, Gaudi’s first designed house built in 1884 to Casa Mila, which was finished nearly 30 years later. Casa Vicens will be the finalhome on the tour, before “visiting” Parc Guell.

Parc Guell

For Gaudi, Parc Guell was meant to be much more than a park. It was to be a luxury neighborhood complete with all of the best technologies, in perfect congruence with naturalist principles. The symbolism of Gaudi’s work with Parc Guell verges on conspiracy. Your guide will relate the connections to Catalan politics, Catholicism, Mythology and even maybe Freemasonry. Today the park boasts the best views of Barcelona from the iconic Dragon Stairway.

Five Stars!

Our guide Anna was superlative! So much knowledge, and she was very clear and engaging, which can be really difficult when doing things virtually. The visuals were great, and I liked the multiple choice quizzes - kept me involved. I would highly recommend this tour!

Virtual tours have a future!

Virtual tours have future and are not mean to temporarily replace the live in person tours, but are a wonderful way complement a trip abroad as well as deepen your acquaitanance with a given subject. I learned a lot of new things about the life of Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia. I have never before done a virtual tour and I think this experience brings you closer to an object that is being discussed and one can really see the details up close, through photographs and graphics. It's like watching an interactive documentary film where you can also ask questions. Anna Ripoll is a wonderful guide, charismatic, smart and communicative. I really enjoyed her tour and presentation. Thank you Anna!

Loved learning more about Gaudi

Excellent virtual presentation about Gaudi and his work in Barcelona. It is not a travelogue of Barcelona but focuses Gaudi's architecture, especially La Sagrada Familia. I loved the aerial views and videos and the 3D drawings of how it will look when completed. Enjoyable way to spend 75 minutes when you can't travel. Thanks!
