Gaudi and Modernismo



Description:

Your day will be busy, but you'll get a full range of modernist art and architecture from the outside. If you have more time in Barcelona, divide this itinerary into two days visiting the sites on the inside and out. The focus will be Antoni Gaudi's work, but you'll have the chance to see some other modernists along the way.

Day 1 - Barcelona


Snake around Gaudi's benches at the Parc Guell, then taxi to his sand-drip castle spires at la Sagrada Familia. (Public transport is possible, but a little complicated.) Inside the Temple you can go up one of these spires and learn about its history in the museum. Hop on the metro to the Verdaguer stop (or go there by foot). Walk down the Avinguda Diagonal past the Casa Les Punxes and the Casa Comalat. Turn left on Passeig de Gracia pasing and/or stopping in the Casa Mila and Batllo. The two buildings after Batllo are the Casas Amatller and Lleo Morera in that order. Once you come to the Placa Catalunya, you have reached the border of the L'Eixample whose bigger blocks and trees are a contrast from the Gothic quarter. If you have more time in Barcelona, do the Barri Gotic itinerary which picks up where this one leaves off. When you are there, take note of the light posts in the Placa Reial. They are some of the first public works of Gaudi. Don't miss the famous Quatre Gats cafe where several modernists sipped the nights away.
