Group Tours

Our selection of pre-designed architectural tours for groups

Are you visiting Barcelona for the first time and finding it difficult to choose an architectural tour? Or perhaps you know the city well and are looking for a tour that is a little out of the ordinary?

We have designed several routes to satisfy all levels of architectural curiosity, adapting the contents so that both amateur and expert groups can enjoy our architecture tours, talks and workshops in Barcelona and Catalonia. 

Visiting the tech district, getting to know the most important sustainable projects or understanding Gaudi’s work at the hands of an expert are some of our proposals.

Get to know Barcelona off the beaten track
“Our University visited Barcelona with 30 students in Urban Planning. After explaining the purpose of the excursion Lorenzo did a suggestion of a tour and introductory lecture to start the week with. The lecture was a brilliant introduction to Barcelona for our students and helped them a lot in understanding the city and the places we visited during the week. The tour itself was the highlight of the excursion. The places we visited and topics discussed matched the level of our students very well. Urban interventions in historic city centre, creating public spaces to meet, the use of cultural heritage, gentrification, creating green spaces in or on top of heavy infrastructures were topics addressed during the tour. Lorenzo did a great job in activating the students and is a great story teller. The headsets for the group is a big recommendation. All students were engaged and could look around while listening. Big thanks and great value for money! Looking forward to our next visit or guided tours in other cities.”

Private Walks

Direct booking tours to architectural landmarks for small groups and all architecture lovers

Our architectural tours are designed for small groups, couples and architecture lovers who have little time in Barcelona. 

This is the short and direct booking version of our essential architecture tours. During 2.5 hours we guide you into the urban complexity of Barcelona with the help of a specialised architect who will give you his vision in an entertaining and educational way.

Barcino, the seafront or Montjuïc mountain are just a sample of all our guided tours.

“The guided tour with Lorenzo was a real highlight of our trip to Barcelona. He brought the city’s rich architectural history to life with his detailed professional knowledge and enthusiasm for sharing his passion for the city. I was particularly impressed by the way in which he engaged our two children, aged 10 and 12, and encouraged them to consider the history and development of the city through a new lens. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I highly recommend the tour.”
