BARCELONA CRUISE AND DAY TOURS
DAY TOUR: PEDRALBES, THE MONASTERY AND THE GARDENS (8 hours)
This walking tour will bring you up close and personal with
a softer side of the big city, something both removed from the hustle and
bustle and yet filled with that distinct Barcelona charm. Visit Gothic churches,
modernista gems and enjoy the tranquil beauty of one of the city’s
“forgotten” neighborhoods. We will even stop to enjoy a streetside
snack as we wind our way through history, legend and a slice of the city
that most visitors don’t get to enjoy.
Some of the highlights of this tour include:
- Guided visit to Pedralbes Monastery. It
seems almost impossible that in a city as lively as Barcelona you can
find a monastery like the one in Pedralbes. Entering the monastery complex
is entering into a different world. A world of silence and tranquility,
which since 1327 has been the home to the Poor Clares nuns. But the monastery
has opened up in recent times, frequently holding exhibitions and concerts.
- Guided visit to Finca Güell: one
of Gaudí's earliest works, until recently all that could be visited
of this magnificent estate was Gaudi’s spectacular wrought-iron
gate in the shape of a Dragon.
- Guided visit to Royal Palace and Gardens.In
its origins, both the garden (partially designed by Gaudi) and the house
were property of Gaudi’s main patron, Eusebi Güell. In 1919
Güell gave the house and the land to the royal family in thanks for
the title of Count they had bestowed on him. It then became the royal
residence when they visited the city.Nowadays it houses the Ceramics Museum,
the Textile Museum and the Decorative Arts Museum.
