the Artigas Gardens and Chalet de Catllaras
For many years these original masterpieces were of exceptional interest of the most curious locals. Now that they are restored and prepared for touristic visits, you can finally see that Gaudi is not only about Sagrada Familia or Casa Batllo. Prepare to get involved in the wild natural beauty of Catalan mountains, surrounding the small garden Gaudi designed as a thank you present for the hosting family he had in Pobla de Lillet. Additional bonus - and experience of going by car upon the narrow train way. After we walk all the ups and downs of the garden, we will have lunch at a very local restaurant with tasty food you cannot meet at big cities and have a drive to the Chalet de Catllaras through the forest. Once it used to be a home for those engineers who worked at Guell's factory. Recently restored to have its original looks, it is probably the most mysterious and hidden work of Gaudi.
We will collect you from the hotel or the port and will take you to Pobla de Lillet. The way of 2 hours will not be that long. Interesting stories and a bottle of cava will make it seem shorter. First we will visit the Artigas Gardens. At midday we will have lunch at a local restaurant. Maybe you will opt for an open-air picnic? Up to you. As a dessert the route to the Chalet de Cotllaras and an outside excursion (not visitable inside at the moment). Impressed, we will go back to Barcelona.
