Barcelona Walking Tours Modernisme

An expert guide will accompany you through the heritage district, the Quadrat d'Or: a true open-air museum right in the centre of Barcelona's Eixample neighbourhood. You'll also be able to admire works by architects such as Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch.

Accessibility details


Although this route covers pedestrianized streets and public thoroughfares that have no accessibility problems, wheelchair users may require assistance to enter the lobbies of certain buildings.
The route doesn’t include visits inside any of the featured buildings as most of them are private properties or charge for admission. In some cases, you can visit the lobby or foyer.

Some of the buildings included on the route are:
Palau de la Música Catalana, the restaurant “Els 4 Gats”, Cases Pons i Pascual, Casa Antoni Rocamora, Casa Heribert Pons, Casa Jaume Moysi, Casa Sebastià Pratjusà, Casa Climent Arola, Editorial Montaner i Simon (Fundació Tàpies), L’Illa de la Discòrdia (Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera), Casa Vídua Marfa, Casa Milà (La Pedrera), and Casa Ramón Casas.

As a rule the guides take into account the requirements of people with reduced mobility: they will do their utmost to keep barriers to a minimum and make it easier for them to get around.
