The Barcelona of Gaudí



An exciting tour of 12 monuments, great artistic legacy left by the great architect to Barcelona, follow an itinerary that begins in the Diagonal, passing by Passeig de Gracia, facing the sea and face back into the city to finish in the relaxing Park Güell

The Barcelona of Gaudí

An exciting tour of the great artistic legacy left by the brilliant architect to Barcelona:

Finca Güell

Built between 1884 and 1887 is in "Avenida de Pedralbes 77"

Through a narrow entrance the visitor enters paradise of color and imaginary forms that Gaudí created for his friend and promoter, the industrialist Eusebi Güell.



The gate of the Finca Miralles



In "Passeig Manuel Girona"

Small commissioned by his friend, only a door, interestingly in contrast to the Casa Calvet, which at the time was building.

Bellesguard

(1900-1909) in "C. Bellesguard"

Symbol of Catalonia, because the last catalan King Martí I, had his house there. Centuries later, this Gothic building was modified by Gaudí reaching a result of great harmony.



Colegio Teresiano

(1888-1889) in "Ganduxer, 87"

This school of Gothic inspiration that Gaudi worked respecting strictly the principles of poverty the order, was a brilliant combination of traditional and futuristic forms.



Casa Vincens

(1883-1888) in "Carrer de les Carolines 18-24"

His architectural debut. It is not the Palace of a Prince of the 1001 nights, but a manufacturer of tiles, material that the artist employed en masse, along with others also very cheap as brick and iron, obtaining the impressive results that marked him throughout his career.



Casa Milà

(1906-1910) at the "Passeig de Gràcia 92"

Perhaps it is the building that best summarizes all the architectural elements of Gaudí, with its façade porous as if it were the sand dunes of the desert, with its honeycomb appearance or as if it were a formation of soldiers. However, by Futurist, in his time was criticized and lampooned, therefore the name given "La Pedrera".



Casa Batlló

(1904-1906) in "Passeig de Gràcia 43"

Facade without a singular straight, even its walls are wavy, as if it was made in skin, as its doors of skin of calf which both Dali praised. Elephants, monsters or Venetian masks among others are the elements that evoke the contemplation of its facade. As he used tile in infinite and delicate shades of blue is another curiosity that does not escape visitors.



Casa Calvet

(1898-1900) in "Carrer de Casp"

Another of their homes with prosaic purposes; residential and business building. This was the most conventional building that Gaudí designed. He received the only mention of his life as a recognition of the city to work.



Palau Güell

(1886-1889) in "Carrer Nou de la Rambla 3-5"

Second and difficult custom of his friend. In only 18 x 12 meters of plant, Gaudí was build a sumptuous palace. As it did astounds visitors, so that from the narrow street goes unnoticed, is skyrocketing with magical Visual effects of its dome, stained glass, staircases and windows. Culminating such paradise on the roof with an extraordinary garden. More than one who knows it is stunned to learn its dimensions is huge, extravagant and brilliant, like all his work.

Sagrada Familia

(1883-1926) at "Plaça de la Sagrada Família"

The great Cathedral of Gothic inspiration and standard of modern architecture

It was the biggest project of his life and his most beloved and financed dream. In it he would enter a chorus of 1,500 singers, 700 children, 5 organs, etc.

Mirandola from afar, and from some perspective this grandiose monument seems finished, but is just a cover, as if it were a scene of theatre,

Gaudí died before being able to finish it. However plans are complete and thoroughly developed. Will it end Barcelona one day so monumental project?.

Park Güell
(1900-1914) in "Carrer D'olot"
We ended our journey in this fantastic Park. Conceived as a residential city in a paradisiacal landscape, it ended up being a park. A fascinating scenario of gardens of pine and palm trees where unveil shapes architectural as born of the Earth, in that balance that only nature offers,
Gaudí with its large science and thoroughness could create.

Crypt of the Colònia Güell

This small chapel, wonderfully integrated into the landscape, you can visit about 15 km on the outskirts of the city.

Barcelona: gastronomy

Cuisine in Barcelona Catalan presents dishes more typical stews like the escudella i carn, stew with vegetables, rice, pasta and potatoes, served as soup, stew with white beans, which includes sausage (traditional Catalan sausage), pilot (mass of meat of) cow), bread, egg and spices, or similar versions like faves to the Catalan or botifarra amb monjetes, and Rice Casserole, similar to the Valencian paella.

In its fish specialities we can mention the "zarzuela", (a name given to the operetta in Spain) of grouper, monkfish, prawns or shrimp, squid and mussels. This zarzuela a nobler version exists "opera", which instead of prawns has lobster. Another very typical recipe is suquet de peix, cod seasoned in Tin container.

Among the most typical desserts are known Catalan cream, which is a kind of yolk flan, mel i mato, cottage cheese with honey, and the dessert of musician, made with pine nuts and raisins.

Among the wines of the area, we highlight Peralada, Alella, Tarragona, Priorat red wines. Among whites, the Penedès. And how no, the famous sparkling or cellars of the Penedès and Peralada.

The Ensanche

This modernist grid is home to three environments without mixing: worshippers of the design, the classics, and the young and informal. In the Plaça de Catalunya, enchanters are some bars with terrace overlooking the wide pavements, very frequented by young people and tourists.

Grace

This charming neighborhood of narrow streets and small houses, still remember what in the past was a village on the outskirts of Barcelona, nightlife is split by its squares, such as the Plaza del Sol or Rius i Taulet, on whose terraces the younger crowd to find the local casual fashion both in summer, such as offering the most innovative architectural style. Everything that leads to start the evening in a bar, follow it in another and have breakfast hours later, metres beyond. Here the environment is more important than the prestige.

La Barceloneta

Without losing its traditional taste of fishing district, this old the wooden pier has been renovated becoming a huge balcony that opens up to the sea. Beautiful and new premises were born; beautiful restaurants modern or classic to take a good fish, for tapas bars and terraces or premises of design as the of the ride's Moll de la Fusta, all of them places where "beautiful people of Barcelona" is mixed with savvy tourists.

Santaló - San Gervasi

Upper area above the Diagonal. At the intersection of two streets (Santaló and Mariano Cubi) there are more musical bars per square meter than in the rest of the city. Public young and handsome. The Civil Guard patrols prevent traffic through the area, but can not prevent people leaving the premises, Cup in hand and make gatherings on the terraces. Good atmosphere, good music, you can count on cups. In the bars of the square "Francesc Macià", you can find the flower and cream of Barcelona society.
