It was wonderful to explore Barcelona with a guide named Johannes (a native of Munich). So great that we booked a 2nd tour of the old town discovery tour. You can only recommend it if you want to experience and explore Barcelona. Many thanks for the interesting 61/2 hours.

Description

Eixample means "city expansion" in English and the quarter is characterised above all by its straight streets with flattened corner facades. The city walls were torn down in 1854 and the fallow land between the crowded old town and the village of Gracia was finally allowed to be built on.

The right Eixample, also called the Golden Rectangle, is the area where industrialists, big bourgeoisie and Catalans (the so-called Indianos), who had come to money in South America, had their spectacular city palaces built by the star architects of that time.

The magnificent buildings were intended to showcase the wealth of the wealthy population

Among the architects were Domènech i Montaner, Puig i Cadafalch and of course Gaudí - who were able to let off steam in this district.

The movement of modernism emerged.

Catalan Modernism, was not only a new architectural style, but also a cultural renewal movement in literature and visual arts, which was formed around 1885.

During our Barcelona city tour through the Golden Rectangle we will look at the most important buildings built by modernist architects. You will be able to admire the many architectural treasures of this quarter at close quarters.

Please note

Additional information

This tour of Barcelona is a three weather tour. We stroll through the city in sun, wind and rain. Even heavy showers will not stop us.

When the sun is high in the zenith during the summer months, don't forget your sunglasses, cap and cream. A small water bottle for the thirst in between can also not hurt. In winter a jacket or thin coat is usually sufficient.

So that you can experience the hustle and bustle of the city at first hand, the guide will stay on the streets and squares during this city tour. Monuments can be admired mostly from the outside. Museum visits and interior visits are (with a few exceptions) not part of the programme.

The tour is a leisurely walk, where there is no rush. There is always time for a break to take pictures. And a toilet break is also taken.
If you are fit enough to survive a shopping spree, you are also fit enough for our tours. You neither have to climb hills nor endless stairs. Since we are on foot, you should wear comfortable shoes.
