 Spain Barcelona The City of Gaudi Podtours

English

Late nineteenth century Catalonia was a ferment of artistic activity. At the forefront were architects such as Puig i Cadafalch and Domenech i Montaner, working in what's called 'modernisme' here, 'art nouveau' elsewhere. Then Antonio Gaudi picked up their style and developed it into his own, very personal art.

On our Podtour™ we'll introduce you to these earlier, and less well known architects. You'll find their heady mix of Gothic, Japanese, classical and Arabic references infectious - as well as the way they mixed together architecture with other arts, like metalwork, fine ceramics, and stained glass.

And we'll also visit Gaudi's greatest buildings, so you can see how his style of architecture develops from Modernisme - and becomes something quite different.

Our tour starts at the Quatre Gats restaurant on Calle Montsio, where Picasso held his first exhibition, and ends at the Hospital Sant Pau. There's quite a bit of walking involved, though you can use the metro to cut out some of the more lengthy hikes.
