We will visit three hidden treasures of Barcelona, which are somewhat distant from the city center but should not be missed by the curious traveler.
Our first destination is one of Antoni Gaudí’s lesser-known masterpieces, the Güell Crypt, which was declared a World Heritage Site in recognition of its outstanding artistic and architectural merits.
We will also explore the beautiful and well-preserved Güell factory town, where the Crypt is located.
Our tour then takes us to the elegant neighborhood of Pedralbes and a stop at the entrance of the Güell Pavilions, protected by an open-jawed dragon worked into a wrought-iron gate.
To make the most of the day, we will also visit the huge Gothic cloister of the Royal Monastery of Pedralbes, founded in 1325.
We will end our tour with a nice stroll and light tapas lunch in the old Sarrià neighborhood.
