What you'll do

Join this special Gaudí experience! Learn about modernism and the most famous Catalan architect during a two hours walk. Have your personal hands-on experience in Angelika´s workshop where you will create your own souvenir in Gaudí´s mosaic style.

What is Modernism? Why did it develop? Why does the roof of Casa Batlló look like the back of a dragon? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? We will answer these questions during the walk along the famous Gaudí houses and the old town. Discover more buildings by contemporary architects from that era. Get to know Barcelona’s history and legends while strolling through the maze of little streets in the Born district.

The walk will lead us to Angelika´s workshop where you will learn the technique named “Trencadís”. As you will have discovered during the walk, this technique - using materials such as shards of glass, ceramics or mirrors - can be found on Gaudí´s work. After a short introduction she will show you the basics, handling of tools and how to create your first masterpiece such as a refrigerator magnet or the top of a box.

This experience will leave you with an unforgettable memory and a unique reminder of your trip to Barcelona. Feel like Gaudí during this walk & workshop!

Angelika: When I came to Barcelona 28 years ago, I was impressed by the works of genius Gaudí. This made me specialising in the mosaic art and offering classes in my workshop in the Born area. In 2016 the Catalan President rewarded me with a master craftsman certificate for my skills and being an ambassador of cultural traditions.

Christian: When coming to Barcelona more than 8 years ago I developed a passion for its architecture, rich history and the many legends that can be found all over the city. Turning passion into profession I became tour guide specialising in Gaudí and historic walking routes and founded The Barcelona Feeling.

Where you'll be

The walk will start at the last house designed by Gaudí: Casa Mila. Following Passeig de Gracia down towards the historic center we will pass by Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller, Casa Morera and turn into the medieval district of El Born. The Palau de la Música, the famous concert hall, will be our last stop before arriving to Angelika´s workshop in the middle of a maze of back alleys typical for that area.

Tolle Kombination von Stadtspaziergang zum Thema Gaudí & Architektur sowie dass man selbst Hand anlegen konnte, um ein eigenes Mosaik zu kreieren. Nach getaner Arbeit ist die Bewunderung für die Werke von Gaudí noch größer! Christian hat mit vielen Geschichten, Legenden und Details eine sehr spannende Tour ausgeführt und Angelika hat sich herzlich um uns in ihrem Atelier gekümmert und uns bei der Erstellung unseres eigenen Souvenirs geholfen. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Mein Mann und ich haben den zweistündigen Spaziergang mit Christian sehr genossen. Er hat uns tolle Gebäude gezeigt und bis ins Detail erklärt. Die Kombination dabei von Geschichte und Legenden und Architektur war sehr informativ. Danach waren wir noch im Atelier von Angelika, die uns sehr professionell begleitete beim Erstellen unseren eigenen kleinen Kunstwerkes á la Gaudí! Absolut empfehlenswert!

A wonderful experience in a very relaxed atmosphere. Great conversations that went beyond the realm of architecture! The ceramic workshop was a lot of fun and it feels very rewarding to go home with a little piece of "art". I will do it again for sure next time I'm in town!

Sehr ausführliche Führung zu den berühmten Gebäuden von Gaudi (ohne die Kirche), aber auch zum direkten Vergleich von anderen Künstlern aus dieser Zeit. Sehr viel Information, Hinweise zu den Details (die man sonst so gar nicht bemerken würde) und gesprickt mit vielen Infos und Tipps. Der Workshop im Anschluss ist sehr nett und liebevoll gestaltet, etwas mehr Zeit könnte er haben, aber es ist total ok!

Christian shared a lot of history and we got to know different neighborhoods. I really like the Born neighborhood where the workshop is. I think the workshop could have been better, but on that day Angelika was not available, so someone else was subbing in. I am glad I didn't just do a mosaics workshop because in the end my favorite part was the walking tour with Christian.
