Ogle the park’s sculptures, terraces and mosaic-embellished walls, and then finish with a stroll down Passeig de Gràcia for photos by the former private residences of Casa Batlló and La Pedrera (Casa Milà).

After meeting your guide in central Barcelona, set off on your afternoon tour with a stroll to La Sagrada Familia, arguably one of the most prized of Gaudi’s architectural works. Make your way around the outside of the UNESCO-listed cathedral, gazing up at its sky-piercing spires, and learn about its history from your guide. Created during the artist’s final days, the cathedral remains unfinished but is said to have been his most ambitious project.

From the cathedral, follow your guide to Park Güell, an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel that was also designed by Gaudi. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, curved walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the lines with your fast-track ticket, and head inside to explore the abundance of pretty walkways and leafy parkland with your guide.

Having admired the colorful mosaics, statues and architecture inside the park, continue to Passeig de Gràcia in central Barcelona. On a stroll down the street, stop to see two of Gaudi’s home-turned-museums: Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the wealthy Batlló and Milà families commissioned the artist to create their residences, and of the controversy that the attention-grabbing abodes created.

Pose for photos in front of the buildings, say your goodbyes to your guide, and then finish your tour near Casa Batlló.

The winner of several awards including the Premio de la Fundación José Manuel Lara in Spain and the Borders Original Voices Award in the United States, The Shadow of the Wind is about a boy, Daniel, and his mysterious journey around Barcelona to find the truth about a book, also called The Shadow of the Wind, that he finds in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books.

See a different side of Catalonia on an evening trip from Barcelona to a traditional ‘correfoc’ (fire-running) festival in a local village! Watch villagers dressed as devils ward off evil spirits by dancing to music and turning the village into a fiery cauldron of light and fireworks. It is a unique, real, and unforgettable experience! Dance with the devils between the crowds or just watch the spectacle of fire. Numbers are limited to 14 on this small-group tour, ensuring you’ll enjoy this traditional festival with personalized attention from your guide.

Meet your guide in central Barcelona and head off by luxury minibus to a village in the countryside or on the coast. During the journey, which lasts no more than 1.5 hours, learn about the history of correfocs and their place in Catalonian tradition. Each festival is unique to the village it takes place in, so no correfoc is ever the same.

The time-honored Catalan tradition started in the 12th century, under the name el ball de diables (the dance of devils). Deriving from medieval street theater, the dance represented the fight of good over evil, and soon whole towns took part – with village centers decked out to represent hell and villagers dressed as the devil.

Arriving in the village, you’ll be greeted by colorful street decorations and partying locals. Most of the festivals have a religious meaning behind them and your guide will talk through some tales of the Christian and pagan influences on the shows. Typically locals wear red and black costumes with masks and horns, and carry effigies of dragons that are designed to ward off evil spirits. Take time to explore the village at leisure, soaking up the atmosphere before the outdoor show starts.

The experienced native guide shows the outfits and special clothes “devils” wear, how they light their sparklers and firecrackers, and explains secrets and details behind this centenary and unique tradition; which is strongly connected to the history of the town. You can take it all in from the side lines or get involved the same way a local does and surrounded by locals.

Typically, a correfoc lasts a couple of hours, and the show consists of a dazzling fireworks display in tune to live drum beats and folk music with gralla (Catalonian flute) tunes. The local devils wave sparklers and firecrackers around, dancing and running around in the middle of a shower of sparks. Stand back and watch the crazy festivities with your guide, or get involved and run with the devils between the crowds.

At the pre-arranged time, head back to your minibus for the relaxing journey back to Barcelona.

Have you heard about Cristobel Columbus's love for the queen Isabella I of Castile? And then we get to the lowest bars where artists and bohemians sought for inspiration. Did you know that Jean Genet was inspired by the brothel Madame petite for his work Querelle of Brest? And that Picasso's Lady at Eden's Concert was inspired by the music hall located in carrer Nou de la Rambla? "While Russians and Japanese made war, the earliest cocottes dropped by the Eden and left little red spots on Barcelonan's exited moustaches" wrote Josep M. Planes. You will also learn the history behind La Boquería, which, before becoming the market it is, used to be the convent of Sant Josep, where young Barcelonans would attend mass seven Sundays in a row before declaring their love to a "pubilla"...
