Description

Barcelona

Barcelona is a modern and cosmopolitan city open to the sea and with very different neighborhoods. This tour will give you the opportunity to get to know in 8 hours what the city is like in the 21st century. Through a well thought out itinerary you will get to know and visit from the Roman beginnings of the city to the most modern areas such as the renovation of Poble Nou and the Plaza de las Glorias without forgetting the great works and monuments made during different periods:

Roman Barcelona and Gothic Quarter

The narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter hide much of the city’s history. We will see the remains of Roman aqueducts, the Jewish Call, some of the houses of the guilds of the Middle Ages and the large Gothic basilicas such as Santa María del Mar, Santa María del Pi and Sant Just y Pastor.

During the walk we will not be able to forget the famous market of the Boquería, the Ramblas and the Liceo or squares with charm like the Plaza del Rey, the real square or Sant Felip Neri.

Coastline

Barcelona, look towards the sea and this is the first thing you will see when you walk along the coastline. Pay special attention to the area of Port Vell, Barceloneta and some incredible historic buildings located in this area such as the Astilleros (Drassanes).

Port Vell
Monument to Columbus
Montjuïc

Enjoy the spectacular views of the entire city at your feet. You will see how Barcelona is surrounded by mountains and faces the sea. You will also pass in front of the great facilities of the Olympic Barcelona: The Olympic Stadium, the pebetero of the famous architect Calatrava or the Palau Sant Jordi.

Paseo de Gracia

A must-see on the city’s noblest street where luxury shops accompany the majestic view of the facades of the most emblematic modernist civil buildings designed by famous architects: Casa Gaudí and Casa Batlló by Antonio Gaudí; Casa Amatller by Puig y Cadafalch and Lleó Morera by Domenech i Montaner, among others.

Sagrada Family

Any tour in Barcelona can not forget the Basilica of the Holy Family. The emblem of the city and the great opera by the brilliant architect from Barcelona. We will make an exterior visit

Park Güell

We will enter the monumental area of the Municipal Park, which should have become an exclusive residential area for the city’s bourgeoisie. The project, too modern for the time, had to be abandoned by the architect and his patron. Thanks to that today we can enjoy a unique park with constructions that play to integrate with nature and that at the same time were solutions and innovative improvements.

Description

The Sagrada Familia is a reflection of Gaudí’s artistic plenitude: he worked on it during most of his professional career, but especially in the last years of his career, where he reached the culmination of his naturalistic style, making a synthesis of all the solutions and styles tested until then. Gaudí achieved a perfect harmony in the interrelationship between structural and ornamental elements, between plastic and aesthetic, between function and form, between content and continent, achieving the integration of all the arts in a structured and logical whole.

Park Güell is a reflection of Gaudí’s artistic plenitude: it belongs to his naturalistic stage, a period in which the architect perfected his personal style, through inspiration in the organic forms of nature, for which he put into practice a whole series of new structural solutions originated in his deep analysis of the ruled geometry. To this he adds a great creative freedom and an imaginative ornamental creation. Gaudí deployed all his architectural genius in the Güell Park and put into practice many of his innovative structural solutions that would be emblematic of his organicist style and would culminate in the Sagrada Familia.

The park was conceived by Güell and Gaudí as a structured complex where, within an incomparable frame of natural beauty, would be placed some houses of high standing, with all the technological advances of the epoch to try to obtain the maximum comfort and with finishes of great artistic quality.

Description

Montserrat is a rocky massif traditionally considered the most important and significant mountain in Catalonia. It is located 30 km from the centre of Barcelona. In this mountain is the Sanctuary and monastery of Montserrat dedicated to the Virgin of Montserrat.

The word mont means mountain and serrat means sawed in Catalan. This name is given because of its peculiar morphology, in which it seems as if they had tried to saw it with a giant saw. Since according to legend was found the image of the virgin in the Santa Cova, Montserrat has been linked to spirituality. In addition to the monastery, the mountain has an outstanding number of small churches and emitas, some of them abandoned, such as Santa Cecilia, Sant Benet, Sant Joan or Sant Jeroni.

The Virgin, popularly known as “la Moreneta” because of its dark colour, is a Romanesque wood carving dating from the end of the 12th century. Its colour is the result of the transformation of the varnish over time. The festival of the Virgin of Montserrat is celebrated on 27 April. The Virgin is the patron saint of Catalonia.

Description

The Dalí Theatre-Museum is a museum entirely dedicated to the painter Salvador Dalí. It is the third most visited museum in Spain.

In his will, the artist bequeathed an enormous quantity of works of art to the Spanish State, which were distributed between this museum and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid. The repertoire exhibited in Figueres has subsequently been enriched with acquisitions made by the Foundation.

The artist personally took care of the museum project, so much so that inside the complex is his last room and his tomb. As the name suggests, the building that houses the museum was a theatre, the Principal, built in 1849 by Josep Roca i Bros. In 1939, during the Spanish Civil War, it was destroyed by the bombardments of the rebellious side, which left only the structure of what had been a beautiful neoclassical construction standing.

The transformation into a museum was carried out by Ramón Guardiola Rovira, an art-loving lawyer who arrived in Figueres in 1960. The mayor found it strange that Figueres had done nothing for his most illustrious son, and invited the artist to give a painting as a gift to the local museum. Dalí replied that he was willing to donate an entire museum and suggested that the city’s theatre, then destroyed and abandoned, should be the venue. This theatre had a particular significance for Dalí, as he had exhibited his first two works there in 1918 on the occasion of a painting exhibition.

Figueres

The current name derives from Ficaris, from the Visigoth period. In 1267 King James I of Aragon granted it privileges and years later Hugo IV, Count of Ampurias, set it on fire.

From the old wall stands the Gorgot tower, integrated into the Dalí Theatre-Museum. In the 19th century Figueras was the driving force behind a renovated sardana by the hand of José Ventura.

During the 19th century it acquired notoriety and strength, was granted the title of city and became a centre of republican and federalist ideas.

During the Spanish Civil War it was loyal to the government of the Second Republic. It was heavily bombarded by the coup army, especially at the end of the campaign in Catalonia, when thousands of refugees crossed the city in the direction of France to go into exile. Among these refugees was the government of the Republic itself, including Azaña or Negrín, the Catalan government and the Basque government. It is worth remembering that it was also the last place where the Republican Courts met.

In the 1950s the recovery of the city began to manifest itself, consolidating itself with the beginning of tourism and development in the 1960s.

Also from Figueras Narciso Monturiol, inventor of the submarine ship ‘Ictineo’, Salvador Dalí, a well-known surrealist painter and singer Mónica Naranjo.

Girona

Gerona is known as the pearl of northern Catalonia for its wealth of heritage and art. Its historic quarter or Barri Vell is delimited in the east by the so-called Paseo de la Muralla, the ring road of the ancient Carolingian walls (ix century) and the lower Middle Ages (xiv and xv centuries). Its monuments include the Call, an old Jewish quarter, one of the best preserved in Spain, as well as the colourful Casas del Oñar, built on the banks of the river and very close to the cathedral, with the widest nave in the world in Gothic style.

In 2016, the city was awarded the European Prize, a distinction awarded annually by the Council of Europe, since 1955, to those municipalities that have made remarkable efforts to promote the ideal of European unity.

The cathedral of Santa María de Girona is located at the highest point of the city; it has the widest Gothic nave in the world, with a total width of 22.98 meters. Its construction began in the xi century in Romanesque style, following in the xiii|XIII century] with Gothic, preserving only the Romanesque cloister of the xii|XII century]] and the tower of the same period dating from 1040; it was finished in the xviii century. It is of cultural interest.

Next to it is the old Episcopal palace, now the seat of the Girona Art Museum.

Tour description

Tell us the pick up time and place that best suits you and let us arrange a time-efficient half day tour to make the most out of the surroundings of Barcelona. Depending on the circumstances of that day or your priorities, we will first head to Montserrat or to the wine country. All in all, you will be able to enjoy the inspiring history of Santa Maria de Montserrat church and monastery from within, by hand of your English-speaking local guide. In an approximately one hour long guided tour, we will introduce you to the almost one thousand years long history of this landmark. Feel embraced by the spirituality and the breathtaking views of the site afterwards, while you enjoy a short break of free time to appreciate the scenario or shop local made cheese, honey and other products in the farmers’ market.

The characteristically silhouetted massif of Montserrat is surrounded by different wine-making regions. In the lowlands north to the mountain we find the DO Pla de Bages, while to the south DO Penedès covers the extension between the range and the seaside. Both regions are brimming with history, beautiful landscapes and country houses that have served as wineries for decades or even centuries in a territory in which Romans already cultivated vines for wine production two thousand years ago. You will visit one of these traditional family-owned  wineries, where your guide will tell you everything about the region and the history of its owners. You will learn how the local weather and the soil affect the different grapes the winery produces and the flavours they are able to obtain from the land. After being carried away by all the stories, get ready to enjoy these local flavours in a tasting of four exclusive wines (or cavas, in case the winery produces them) while you fill your stomach with a selection of traditional tapas.

Get back to Barcelona after this time-efficient fulfilling experience, overflowing with fantastic landscapes and history. You will still have time to enjoy the rest of the afternoon and the evening in the city, still enjoying the after taste of the wines lingering in the back of your palate!


How to tailor this tour

You don’t have time constraints? Check out the full day version of this private tour and be carried away by a whole day of beautiful colors and flavors!

Would you rather enjoy a full meal instead of a tapas lunch? If you have some extra time to invest on a restaurant, we can arrange a traditional Catalan full meal with wine in the surroundings of the winery. Select the Lunch Option when booking!
