Gaudi & Barcelona Team. Gaudí Tour

The Gaudí & Barcelona Club has been organizing tours through a local travel agency since 1999. The tours are specifically focused on the works of Antonio Gaudí and the most famous architectural sights in the city of Barcelona.

Those specialized tours are for people that are searching for personalized care and attention and a deep knowledge of the culture through which they are, including gastronomy, art, society, and local events.

Some examples of past tours:

July 2001- Group of 15 journalists from the OTA/OTR financial newspaper in San Francisco. We arranged the bus, the official guide - an expert in the architecture of Gaudí, the entrances for the buildings, and free entrance to a very fashionable night club here in Barcelona. Feel free to contact Hartmut Leuschner research@odn.de, the Senior Editor in Europe for OTA/OTR, and the organizer of the 1999 international meeting of the Company in Barcelona.
