Barcelona is not only a showcase for Roman, Medieval & Renaissance art. The city, and its people, also made a major contribution to leading 20th Century avant-garde art movements such as Cubism, and of course Modernism. Well, when it comes to Modernist Architecture, Gaudi is Barcelona's true superstar. Strolling around the city, you sure will see some great examples, but the Sagrada Familia remains so very unique that it deserves a dedicated private tour.
The Sagrada Familia, or the 'Basilica of the Holy Family' is one of Gaudi's genius most striking example, and a witness of his unparalleled - both professional and religious - ambitions. Although it really showcases Catalan Modernism and Gaudi's singular style, you'll find a little Neo-Gothic in there, starting with crypt built by the Basilica's first architect Villar. Paradoxically, Gaudi, who died well before the monument was completed, is buried in the only part of he did not designed himself!
Sagrada Familia now is Gaudi's most famous Barcelona masterpiece and part of UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is expected to be finally inaugurated in 2026, a whooping 100 years after Gaudi's death. Can't wait to see it all done. Guess we'll all have to come back!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
