After giving you a tour of the exterior of Gaudi's celebrated cathedral of the Sagradia Familia and explaining the true meaning behind it, we'll meander through Barcelona's modern extension district and explain how this part of the city came about - and why it could have been even more distinctive and attractive.
As you walk, we'll tell you about the roots of Modernism, the striking architectural style that characterises the Eixample and introduce to you the men who created it. We'll also tell you about Gaudi himself - his life, his influences and his tragic and avoidable death.
Our tour wil take you past many of the other modernist buildings in the Eixample and reveal the details and the thinking behind them. And, of course, we'll point out the interesting shops and restaurants along the way.

"Really enjoyed this tour. I did it with a friend who knew more than I did and she said she learnt a lot. Hearing about what you're actually seeing is great and the audio format worked really well." (Belinda Mannington, Hammersmith, London)
