Discover the UNESCO World Heritage-designated masterpieces of Catalonia’s most famous architect with your expert guide. Gaudi’s Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera, was completed in 1912 and is one of Barcelona’s best-known Art Nouveau buildings. Using breakthrough construction techniques, it was at the cutting edge of design and technology and paved the way for 20th-century architecture. Today it houses a cultural centre and exhibition space. Nearby, the visually arresting Sagrada Familia Basilica was begun in 1882 and remains two-thirds complete. Combining Gothic style with Art Nouveau, this unique place of worship is an iconic landmark on the Barcelona skyline. Work continues with the aim of completing the building by the mid-2020s. The final stop of your half-day tour is Parc Guell, a beautiful municipal garden with superb panoramic views over the city; the focal point is a colourful sea serpent-shaped central terrace. Gaudi lived in the gatehouse during his later years, and this is now a museum dedicated to his work.
