Gaudí designed this amazing and unique apartment building in 1906. Its shapes and functionality make it a “must see” when exploring Gaudí’s architecture. Climbing to the rooftop is an unforgettable experience, and its museum explains the secrets of this genius architect. When the building was completed, people called it “the stone quarry”—thus the nickname in Catalan, Pedrera.

The tour takes place rain or shine. The weather in Barcelona is very pleasant and sunny most of the time, never extremely hot or cold. However, we do get occasional rain, mostly March to May and October to November. Check the weather forecast before the tour and be prepared to enjoy your time in Barcelona, rain or shine.

Of course! It covers a lot and it is very dynamic. They will love all the sights!

The walking tour takes about one hour and it is all on flat terrain. Park Güell might be difficult for people with severe walking challenges. We will adapt the tour to your needs.

Yes, although Sagrada Familia might hold services occasionally and Palau Güell closes on Mondays. If for some rare reason another site is closed, we will let you know in advance.

Unless you specifically request it, the tour does not include climbing the towers; availability is very limited and the towers occasionally close on windy or rainy days. If you would like to visit the Sagrada Familia towers, let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to arrange it.

Sagrada Familia asks female visitors to cover their shoulders inside of the church and not wear shorts or miniskirts. If you are visiting Barcelona in the summer time, just make sure to bring a scarf to cover your shoulders in the church, and avoid wearing shorts that day.
