What to Expect
This exclusive tour starts with a visit at the Pedralbes Monastery, a 14th century building. Wander around its cloisters with your guide and learn how the building is an example of gothic Catalan architecture.

Next, travel to the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district where narrow streets are studded with aristocratic mansions and modernist buildings. Head inside the private Gaudí-designed residence of Torre Bellesguard for a tour, and then stroll around the gardens to admire the exterior. The building is known for its
imaginative fusion of medieval, neo-gothic and art nouveau influences.

The tour continues with a walk around Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, enjoying the Casa Roviralta and CosmoCaixa buildings, and take in the striking Valldonzella
Monastery. Walk along Avenida del Tibidabo, home to many of the city’s showpieces. See Torre Andreu, a rotunda commissioned by Dr Salvador Andreu in the early 1900s; and view El Pinar, a gothic-style stone house designed by architect Enric Sagnier.
