Barcelona has always been a city in love with style from the Moderniste to the avant-garde there are no limits to the creativity shown from department stores to theatres. It has also served as a home to artists such as Picasso and Miro and its most notable creative influence, Antoni Gaudi whose unique architectural style in the early 20th Century inspired today’s artistic innovation. Let us show you examples of their work whether hanging on a museum wall or dominating a skyline.
Whether you arrive at the airport or the AVE station you will be met by your guide who will escort you to the car that will take you to your hotel which exemplifies the cutting edge architectural style of today’s Barcelona.
