Barcelona was founded by Romans and enlarged by medieval kings or counts but it was taken to its greatest artistic heights by the bourgeoisie, who adopted Modernism as their favourite style in the late 19th and early 20th century. That’s why the City Council and its Tourist Office have launched the Modernism Route in Barcelona, which includes a full list of the modernist constructions in the city. If you just want to discover the main ones, explained by a friendly tour guide, we offer you two options: to take the Gaudi and Tapas Tour that covers Gaudí’s and Modernism masterpieces in downtown Barcelona (including the Sagrada Familia) or have a Private Tour to also cover other masterworks out the city center

What is the Modernism Route in Barcelona?

The City Council’s Modernism Route in Barcelona is an itinerary composed by more than 100 monuments and buildings, all of them built in the late 19th and early 20th century and classified in this architectural style. The main architects from this period are Domènech i Montaner, Puig i Cadafalch and Antoni Gaudì who is the most important one. In fact, as indicated above, CityTellers has created a specific Gaudi Tour to visit his masterpieces in Barcelona.

What buildings and monuments are included in this route?

As we said, the main monuments and buildings can be discovered with us through our Gaudí Tour (Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, etc.) but if you are a fan of this architectural style and you want to visit the attractions that are a little bit far away from the city centre and aren’t part of our walking tours. Some of the best monuments that are part of this Modernism Route in Barcelona are:

  • Park Güell: one of the masterpieces by Antoni Gaudi, located in a high borough where you will enjoy panoramic views of the city. A fantastic and colourful park, full of trencadìs ceramic tiles, this is really a magic place.
  • Castell dels Tres Dragons: designed by Domènech i Montaner, located in Parc de la Ciutadella.
  • Palau de la Musica Catalana: richly decorated outside and absolutely amazing inside mainly thanks to the use of coloured glass. It was designed by Domènech i Montaner too.
