Learn about Catalan Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí and his major works on this 3-hour guided tour. Discover the creations of this visionary and hear how he managed to achieve his goals. Marvel at the magnificent basilica, La Sagrada Familia, a work that is still in progress. Hear about the controversy over the interpretation of the façade of the Passion, by Gaudí’s successor, Subirachs. You’ll see other works and important Modernist buildings in Eixample, part of modern Barcelona created in the mid-19th century as the city expanded beyond its medieval walls.
