About the tour

Let’s discover together the fantasy world of Antoni Gaudí by visiting this wonderful Unesco World Heritage Park. The park was promoted by Gaudi’s wealthy patron and good friend, Count Eusebio Güell, to be a garden city living place for the affluent bourgeois families of Barcelona in the 1900s. Join Josep to learn why this very whimsical dream place, which had even been praised by Walt Disney himself, soundly failed. Let’s see the house where the genius lived until he decided to move to Sagrada Familia, to be closer to his favorite project. Admire the great views of the city overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the “gingerbread houses”, the roadways supported by tree-like columns and the whimsical mosaics all in great comfort… because Josep is happy to take the ramps and the stairs for you!

"I started guiding when I was 17 as a tour director, and I've since traveled the world and lived in many cities to learn the 4 foreign languages that I now guide in. I have always loved to be among people from all parts of the planet, and I am so lucky now to be able to host them virtually in Barcelona," says Josep. Born and raised in Barcelona, Josep, or "Pepus" as everyone calls him, is a licensed guide with more than 25 years of experience showing people around his incredible city. He takes pride in his extensive knowledge of the masterpieces of Antonio Gaudi, the most outstanding architect of our time whose works include the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló, and La Pedrera to name a few. He has hosted many distinguished guests, including foreign dignitaries, celebrities, actors, and 1000s of other visitors around his city. "An unforgettable memory was when I was told that I had to guide a personality whose name they could not disclose, and then I had to show Barcelona to the first man that had stepped on the moon. Neil Armstrong! I felt very honored!" he says. On his tours, you might also get to discover some culinary delights. Josep loves cooking up a gastronomical storm and if you're lucky, he might just take you along to a gourmet food tour, especially "Mediterranean cooking that they would not dare to order or try on their own…and then they end up loving it forever!" he laughs. Pepus is your man if you want to get under the skin of Barcelona, and discover the culture and history oozing from every street!

Pepus has been guiding since Jul 1992
