Barcelona Modern Architecture Tour

See the most important modern architectural works in Barcelona

The Modern Architecture Tour is a city tour to the most important works of modern architecture in Barcelona. The route includes some of the European masterpieces such as Torre Hesperia, MACBA, Torre Agbar and Las Arenas, but also lesser-known works such as the bridge and tele-antena by Santiago Calatrava. The tour also focuses on the interaction between architecture, urban development and the Catalan culture.

Since the city began planning the Olympic Games events, some of the world's leading architects have come to Barcelona to build a wide range of emblematic buildings all over the city. Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Arata Isozaki, Enric Miralles and Jean Nouvel are among the many international architects who have built buildings in Barcelona over the last decades.
