To finish Gaudi’s masterpiece, it has taken nearly 150 years of painstaking work. It truly demonstrates how detailed and complex the Sagrada Familia is, and the kind of passion that Barcelonians have for this spectacular cathedral. There are 18 spires that tower over the church, each representing different biblical figures. The last and tallest spire is meant to represent Jesus Christ, but has yet to be completed. Once it is, the church will be the tallest in the world. Explore all the nooks and crannies that make up this complex masterpiece with your expert guide.
Next your guide will continue the journey into the brilliant and artistic mind of Antoni Gaudí. The house-turned-museum Casa Batllo is the ultimate representation of Gaudi’s unique style. Called the “House of Bones, Gaudi’s use of uneven lines creates the appearance of a skeletal form. Learn about the incredible and diverse history of the building, originally built for the wealthy Batllo family and later served as an insurance office.
