The walks are organised by the Barcelona History Museum and are free, though registration is required.
One of the most iconic sites that Antoni Gaudí left in legacy to the city of Barcelona is Parc Güell. In July, the Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) is offering a number of different ways to explore this site, and for free! To take part, all you have to do is register, either by phone calling 93 256 21 22 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t tarry! Places are limited!
One of the itineraries proposed is La conquesta dels turons (Conquering the Hills) which treks from Turó de la Rovira to Parc Güell. This route combines history and great views and includes a guided visit to three sites prepared by the museum. La conquesta dels turons will take place on 5 and 19 July at 7pm. The walk lasts around two and a half hours.
Another option, which is focused more on Parc Güell itself, at least from outside, is Barcelona 1902: urbanitzar la Muntanya Pelada (Barcelona 1902: the urbanization of the bald mountain). During the walk, the guide will explain the process of constructing and formalizing the park site. The walk will set out at 8pm and finish at 9.30pm on 12 and 26 July.
Another option is the walk titled Güell, Gaudí i Barcelona. L'expressió d'un ideal urbà (Güell, Gaudí and Barcelona. The expression of an urban ideal). In this case, you can enter the Casa del Guarda (Gatekeeper’s House) in Parc Güell, one of the few more modest living spaces designed by Antoni Gaudí.
