On our two day route, We will start our tour in the emblematic Basilica of the Sagrada Familia (1), where we will contemplate the unique neo-Gothic church built by Antonio Gaudí (and that is still pending completion).

Once we finish, we will begin to descend through the south of the map, but we will make a detour and continue along Avenida Diagonal, one of the main branches. We will turn along the Paseo de Gracia and we will know the Pedrera House- Dear (2) and the Casa Batlló (3), respectively. They are two of the most culminating residences of Gaudí, por lo que nos detendremos para una merecida visita.

We continue east to our next destination, where the different forks will prevent us from going straight. Nevertheless, This will give us the opportunity to make a small ascent along the Gran Vía de Corts Catalanes and observe the beautiful Plaza de Tetuán before going back down the Paseo de Sant Joan until we find the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona (4), monumento causante del paso a la modernidad barcelonesa.

We continue forward along the Lluís Companys landscaped promenade and we will conclude our first day with a pleasant walk through the Ciutadella Park (5), where we will let you walk around the terrain at your leisure and finish visiting some points of interest, recomendando la Cascada Monumental y el Parlamento de Cataluña.

On our second and last day, We will start from one of the last points that we visited the day before, arch of Triumph. We begin to descend on the map along Carrer de Trafalgar and continue along the street that connects, the Carrer d'Ortigosa. At the end of the street, We will find the facade of the Palau de la Música Catalana where we can stay a few moments to contemplate it from outside. We will surround it and continue along the Via Layetana towards the southeast.

When we get to the roundabout in Plaza d´Antoni Maura, We will continue along the Avenida de la Catedral. We stroll a few meters and we find our first destination, Barcelona Cathedral (1). It is one of the oldest and Christian relics in history, por lo que una gira en su interior es un must turístico.

Once we get out, We will continue the itinerary to the east where we will return to the Via Layetana and pull through one of its intersections, the Carrer de l'Argentería. Soon we will be located in the Plaza de Santa María where it stands the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar (2), our last point of interest on the route. We will enter to observe the relics preserved after the fire of 1936 y la posterior restauración de la iglesia.
