Enjoy the two loveliest houses of the Art Nouveau diving into Gaudi's universe with an expert Gaudinist
The tour will start in La Pedrera, "The stone quarry", an underwater world through which Gaudí wanted to praise God. After having enjoyed the visit, we will walk gently and pleasnatly to the casa Batlló, just three streets down the chic boulevard of Gràcia. La casa Batlló stands in the middle of a unique block of houses called "The apple os discord". After having analyzed the neighboring houses, we will focus in the Casa Batlló, an awesome house that wants to be an explosion of energy, mediterraneity and joy
You can choose if you wish to enter one of the two houses, Pedrera & Batlló, or they both, or just visiting the outside façades and the surrounding gorgious boulevard, the "Passeig the Gràcia", often compared to the "Rodeo Drive" in Beverly Hills, to the "Champs Elysées" in Paris or to the "5th Avenue" in NY.
You can combine this 2h "Gaudi's Masterpieces" tour with my 2h "Sagrada Familia in depth" tour for a full understanding of Gaudi's life and works in a morning/afternoon.
-External and internal visit of La Pedrera (1906-1912), from the roof, the so called "The garden of the warriors" to the central courtyards, passing through the attic, and the fourth floor.
-Walking down the delicious boulevard of Gràcia, the poshiest and most chic alleyin the city, that shows off its beauty, its streetlamps, best hotels and best-branded shops.
-External and internal visit of la casa Batlló, (1904-1906), the most beloved jewell of design and aesthetics among Gaudi's works. As in La Pedrera, we start the visit in the roof, here the warriors have become joyful clowns. We also go to the attic, the old laundry, and then to the main floor, where the Batlló family used to live in the Belle Epoque.
