Excellent experience. We started the day in Casa Vicens in the famous Gràcia neighborhood. Casa Vicens was the first house of Gaudí and with our guide I have learnt a lot about Modernism architecture beggining and about the house. Despite being an interesting place this house is not so popular between tourists so it is really nice to be there with a guide. Then we walked across Gracia streets while the guide explained a lot about the area and some other modernism buildings around and arrived to la Pedrera, the most famous private building design by Gaudí, a magical place. In the afternoon the tour visits from Hospital de Sant Pau to the Sagrada Família area with nice explanations about Gaudí. Finally we visited the awesome Sagrada Família. Really nice experience totally recommended for people who likes to walk the city.

Marlon was very knowledgeable and efficiently organised our group to make steady progress through neighborhoods, centuries and ideas.
