This is a tour that I would highly recommend for anyone living in / visiting Barcelona!
Joan is a brilliant guide, he is friendly, knowledgeable, passionate and engaging. You won’t get the “reading off the text book” treatment; our group had a very enjoyable dynamic conversation thanks to Joan. He doesn’t shy away from any questions! From his fanatic tour, I was able to experience and deepen my understanding on the relationship between Barcelona’s cultural /political influence and its architecture – and of course Gaudi’s works!

My sister and I were hosted by Juan on a wonderful walking tour of Barcelona's architectural gems. He was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable, patient, passionate and very interesting. I would thoroughly recommend.

Barcelona Architecture Walks thanks your opinion. The skills of Joan allow him to jump easily from history to politics or to design to let you enjoy the richness of our city... Hope to walk beside you soon!

We had a great time on our Gaudi walk with Ricard and learned a lot about Barcelona's history, and of course Gaudi. I highly recommend this walk if you are planning to visit Gaudi's main sites. It gave us a great foundation of knowledge. I think the pricing is a great value for what you get. If I visit Barcelona again, I would like to do one of the other walks!

Thanks EEpstein, we understand our Regular Walking Tours as a service to the city and its visitors... most of our Regular Walks have 2-6 person (as you could check in our gallery), the perfect size to start a fresh conversation through our city and its architecture.
It would be a pleasure to walk together soon!

I went only a Barcelona Architecture Walks tour with Joan recently. It was a brilliant way to understand Barcelona's history and development. It helped me to appreciate the invaluable contribution Gaudi and some of the other modernisme architects made to Barcelona. I would heartily recommend the tour, even if you're not deeply interested in architecture.

We loved our Gaudi walk with Jordi, who was very friendly, knowledgable and interesting to listen to. We learnt so much about how the city of Barcelona was formed and developed, with fascinating insights and context for appreciating Gaudi's work. You don't need to know anything about architecture to enjoy this walk, there's something in it for everyone.

It was great having an architect as a guide. Jordi was able to answer our questions and he clearly loves unravelling the mysteries of the buildings of barcelona. Next time we visit, I'd love to do the future walk.

Thanks Andshebakes!
Jordi is a brilliant architect specialized in education and spreading of Architecture... he loves to start from the beginning linking architecture concepts with other fields to break its formal image and let you discover how humanistic is our profession and the Masterpieces built in Barcelona... to let you enjoy better the genius of Gaudi!
Hope to see you soon back in Barcelona!
