Summary of The Day: Skip the line to enter Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo. Experience Gaudi's world of fantasy and geometry without the long wait.
Who was Gaudi?
Antoni Gaudi was a visionary architect during Barcelona’s modernista period early 1900. He graced Barcelona with nearly all its extraordinary buildings. No less than 7 have been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, including Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo. Open your eyes, heart and mind - wonder at how Gaudi used nature as his source of inspiration, you will find that what seems like chaos is actually based in sophisticated mathematics. Each detail is full of surprises waiting to be discovered.
Passeig de Gracia
This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudi’s tiles for the pavement and a myriad of grand buildings:
- La Pedrera, Casa Mila. Check out the wavy facade with its extraordinary balconies, and don’t miss the top with the weird chimneys that resemble soldiers looking out for the residents.
Casa Batllo is not just a building but an artistic legend; The exceptional facade reflects a tranquil sea and, hidden behind it, is a world of surprised and refined architectural details.
- Noble Floor
- Roof terrace
The jewel in the crown of Gaudi’s works, still being built, 2026.
- Outside. Each facade explains a chapter of Jesus’ life. You will walk in through the Birth Facade - look closely, the whole nativity is represented there. At the other side of the basilica is the Passion Facade, representing the stages before Jesus died.
- The basilica. There are no words to describe the first time you enter the Sagrada Familia. The curved columns resembling trees, the light that dances and plays across the hall in a constant change of colors. Just wait and see!
- Museum. The studio workshop is essential to understand how Gaudi worked and thought. The models he used are beyond anyone’s imagination.You can stay for as long as you like. We have left the best to the last so you can stay on and savor the building. You can go up the towers by elevator, visit the crypt and museum and compare the contrasting styles of the Birth and Passion facades.
