Peek Into Gaudi’s Life
Antoni Gaudi is regarded as a visionary architect during Barcelona’s modernista period in the early 1900s. Most of Barcelona’s stunning buildings were designed by Gaudi, and 7 of these buildings are listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Open your eyes, heart, and soul to Gaudi’s work, and try to understand his use of nature as a source of inspiration. But Gaudi was more than just artistic genius; most of his work that appears to be chaotic is based on sophisticated mathematics.
Start At The Passeig de Gràcia
After boarding your air-conditioned, luxury coaches, relax and take in your surroundings as you drive along the Passeig de Gràcia, an elegant avenue built by wealthy Barcelonians. The architectural details really stand out at this avenue, including modernist lamp posts and Gaudi’s remarkable tiles for the pavement.
Check out Casa Batlló, considered Gaudi’s artistic legend. From the grand façade that mirrors a peaceful sea, to the bloody battle between the dragon and Saint George, Casa Batlló is sure to impress. Yet another artistic marvel by Gaudi at The Passeig de Gràcia is La Pedrera. This majestic façade with its remarkable balconies and odd-looking chimneys will definitely grab your attention.
The Sagrada Familia In All It’s Glory
Considered the jewel in the crown of Gaudi’s work, the Sagrada Familia is a culmination of his conception of architecture. Gaudi wished for this temple (which is still being built) to be financed by the people, and not by taxes or funding. The entrance fee for each ticket goes towards financing the completion of this building, which started in the year of 1882.
Be sure to check out the outside of the Sagrada Familia, where each façade replicates a chapter of Jesus’ life. The basilica is absolutely breathtaking, with curved columns that look like trees, and light that plays across the hall with a constant change of colors.
At the end of the tour, you are free to stay back for as long as you want until the closing time of Sagrada Familia. During this time, don’t forget to step into the museum, the studio workshop that helps you better understand Gaudi’s thought process and work.
