Overview

Early privileged visit to the Basilica and expiatory Temple of la Sagrada Familia followed by an unforgettable visit with brunch to the Gaudis hidden work Torre Bellesguard. On one hand la Sagrada Familia is one of the most visited buildings in the world. First of all we will visit its astonishing interior extremely rich in symbolism, and with our guide you will discover how Gaud got most of his inspiration from nature, considered by the architect the Gods masterpiece. On the other hand Torre Bellesguard is an undiscovered Gaud building in the exclusive upper part of Barcelona, near Tibidabo Mountain. Torre Bellesguard was built between 1900 and 1909 following a rectilinear patron, something very unusual in his works. Gaud got his inspiration from the medieval castle of the last king of the Hause of Barcelona, who lived in Bellesguard till his dead, in 1410. Thats the reason why Gaud uses medieval elements from the Gothic style mixed with modernist elements.

    This was an amazing tour. My husband and I had a private tour of the Gaudi residence accompanied with wine and cheese after our visit to La Sagrada Familia. The guide was excellent.
    We really learned lot about Gaudi and felt "special" on this tour. Well organized and affordable.

    Julia's travel was on point. First toured the La Sagrada Familia and overwhelmed by the a architecture and history from a very informative lady. Sorry I can't remember her name, but she was great. Followed by even a more intimate private tour and wine tasting with tapas that Bellesguard. We were a party of (8) family and friends, have to say it was probably the highlight of our trip.

    Absolutely enjoyable tour. The views and the brunch on the top of Torres Bellesguard are spectacular!

    Our guide, Angela, was very good! It was obvious that she loved the basilica and knew all the little secrets and stories that it held within its walls. Bellesguard was also a lovely stop with not too many people, and our brunch was delicious!

    This was not Viator's fault. I booked the tour for a Sunday, The schedule was 1st the Sagrada Familia at 9:00 AM and then Torres Bellesguard. 2 weeks before our trip, the Bisilica started saying mass at 9:00, so our tour could not start until after the mass was complete. the tour order was switched and when we arrived at the Bisilica, it was open to the general public and was swamped. Our guide was good, but she was short and our group had trouble keeping track of her in the crowd. My suggestion, take the tour, but don't book it on a Sunday.

    Seeing La Sagrada Familia was a dream come true. It was more than I had even hoped it would be. Torres Bellesguard was a pleasant surprise. Our guide Fernando made the trip very special. He was knowledgeable, passionate, and fun. Fernando made the tour interesting and because of him, it was one of our favorite places in Spain.

    We were supposed to see La Familia first to avoid the crowds. But the tour was flipped with out our permission and we ended going at 12:30pm in the heat of the day with the largest crowds. We did not get what we paid for.
