Meeting Point

Passeig de Gracia 1, right before the Apple Store for a dynamic route

Introduction to Barcelona's Exiample.

XIX century, the industrial revolution arrives and the city sees the need to tear down its walls and expand. The "new Barcelona" is designed as a result of a project. All this new technology opens the doors to creativity and "Catalan Modernism" or "Catalan Art Nouveau" is born.

Casa Lleo i Morera

This private house represents the elegance of details. Working on the building were the forty best craftsmen of the period, following the orders of the arquitect Lluís Domènech i Montaner (Gaudi's teacher).

The facade of this building hides a lot of information about the family and society of the time, our job will be to unveil it!

Casa Ametller

The chocolatier Amatller wanted to move into this custom palace with his daughter. He entrusted the work to the prestigious architect Puig i Cadafalch, a great fan of medieval styles.

This bourgeois Señor will become one of the most controversial figures in Barcelona's upper class, mainly because of the industry he was involved in: CHOCOLATE!

The architect decides to capture it on the facade of his new house. Let's discover it!

Casa Batlló

This house is poetry. The creativity of the genius Antoni Gaudi taken to the extreme. Modernist house taken that looks that has been taken from a fairy tale, Gaudi will tell a story on its facade, a story of a knight who kills a dragon to save a princess in danger. The story of Saint George, the patron saint of Catalunya. Our job will be to open our minds and discover it.

Casa Milá

One of Gaudí's most unique work. It breaks with the physiognomy of the avenue. Its construction generated a great deal of controversy in the early 1900's. Barcelonans gave it the nickname "La Pedrera," (the quarry) which refers to the type of creamy white stone used that comes from the quarries of the surrounding region.

Although this house is an architectural masterpiece, its construction was very controversial both for the city and for its future owners... The Milá couple. Let's discover why...

Sagada Familia / Gaudí's facade - The Nativity Scene

History of the Monument and facade symbols to be unveiled.

Sagrada Familia / Subirachs' facade - The Passion

Most contemporary facade of the monument to date. With a unique style, very different from Gaudí's, Subirachs will leave his mark with a facade full of content and emotions. Our job will be to interpret it, understand the symbolism and at the end we will issue our own judgment... whether we love it or not.

Ending Point

Sagrada Familia / Subirachs - Passion façade
