The walk was full of historical details that changed the way we see the development of this beautiful city. Learned a lot about its buildings, the famous landmarks as well as everyday living and urban planning issues.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Hi Sheryl, We will end the GAUDI walk around 1:00-1:30pm and Sagrada Familia is 30 minutes walking away from the ending point. Would be great to visit it after our explanation as mkronf says! Hope to walk beside you soon!
