Be seduced by the convergence between tradition and modernity at 2 Catalan cities on a full-day tour of Girona and Barcelona. Marvel at the artistic motifs of Gaudi’s Modernisme buildings, such as Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia, and much more.
What to Expect
Depart Barcelona by comfortable, air-conditioned bus, and travel north to the medieval city of Girona, home to one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. Recently chosen as the location site for the new season of “Game of Thrones,” Girona is ready to be discovered by the rest of the world
Learn the history of Girona along small streets in the old city center. Take a guided walking tour through the city center to sights such as Girona Cathedral and the pastel colored houses along the banks of the River. Then, enjoy some free time to explore on your own. Take a 50-minute break for lunch (at your own expense) before returning to Barcelona.
Upon arrival back in the Catalan capital, discover some of the Modernisme masterpieces by Antoni Gaudí, starting with the unfinished basilica of La Sagrada Familia. Marvel at the symbolic - and contrasting - Passion and Nativity façades and their sacred depictions.
Continue to Parc Güell, north of Gracia. Enter the park to see perfect examples of Gaudi’s whimsical elements and organic forms. Then, go to the elegant boulevard of Passeig de Gràcia to gaze in awe at the extraordinary exteriors of Casa Batlló, Casa Mila (“La Pedrera”) and others Modernisme monuments.
