Barcelona Tour with Special Privileges

By James Purefoy Subscribe to RSS | June 14th 2012 | Views:

There are plentiful places of interest in Barcelona which would delight the tourists. However, to enjoy most of the more popular sights in Barcelona, one should consider a Barcelona tour package deal that would offer some special privileges; for example, one Barcelona tour that includes sightseeing La Sagrada Familia allows tourists to skip the queue at this delightfully popular attraction.


The Barcelona tour begins with Montjuïc hill which is Barcelona's highlight as it was the 1992 Olympic Games site. On the hill, one can enjoy the panoramic views of the city. A brief stop would be made at the famous Catalunya National Art Museum before going on to Plaça Espanya to reach the Eixample for some lovely modernist buildings.

Along the way to La Sagrada Famlia, tourists would pass Passeig de Gracia which houses designer stores and Barcelona's famous Antonio Gaudí buildings; namely the Casa Batlló and the La Pedrera. Tourists would view the Hospital de Sant Pau which is a famous symbol of contemporary architecture in Barcelona as well as a UNESCO designated World Heritage site. .

This is a quaint Catalan attraction that is ideal for first-time visitors to Barcelona. There are iconic sights that would impress the tourists. Visiting the La Sagrada Familia is a tour option

La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia is one of the very popular spots of visit while in Barcelona. There are always very long queues at this popular sight of attraction; hence, it is the wise tourists who take on a Barcelona tour package that includes La Sagrada Familia. This allows the tourists direct entry into the beautiful structure and view its magnificent interior on a specially guided tour.

Barcelona delights

The Gothic Quarters of Barcelona is the oldest part in the city where tourists can enjoy a refreshing stroll along a labyrinth of narrow streets in a medieval setting. The medieval atmosphere is surreal although it is modern day Barcelona one is currently in. Hence, one can experience early Middle Ages living through the Jewish Quarter, Cathedral, Royal Palace and a Roman temple that is purportedly 2000 years old.

At the Born district tourists would enjoy a special lunch before visiting the magnificent church of Santa Maria; it is one of the most beautiful churches before the tour ends.


However, one can enjoy more of Barcelona with a continuation to Park Güell for a guided tour of this lovely and famous city garden to view Gaudí's bizarre art creations. One can also visit more of Gaudí's works in La Pedrera without the long queue in an upgraded tour option.
