Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia: Exploring Gaudi’s Genius
Can you imagine visiting the amazing Sagrada Familia of Gaudi in Barcelona during this crazy time? From the comfort of your living room, we can make you fly to Spain and with the most special private tour guide have the virtual experience of a real tour of Sagrada Familia.
The Sagrada Família is a one-of-a-kind temple, for its origins, foundation and purpose. Fruit of the work of genius architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926), the project was promoted by the people for the people. Five generations now have watched the Temple progress in Barcelona. Today, more than 135 years after the laying of the cornerstone, construction continues on the Basilica. On 7 November 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the church, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and proclaimed it a minor basilica.
Javier Sanchez was so in love of Gaudí that he worked at the Sagrada Familia to get a deeper knowledge on all Gaudi's Universe. Javier has been a Local Guide in Barcelona since 1996.
Javier Sánchez de Arévalo
Javier is in first place a traveler himself, who loves to see the world and its wonders. He is so passionate about it, that he has been living half of his life in exotic places like the Caribbean, the Philippines, Egypt, Japan or the Maldives.
“That is why I try to deliver what I prefer to receive when I hire a guide myself. I do not want to hear only all the information that I can find online, but to appreciate the real vision that only a local can have. I expect: flexibility, relaxation, fun, interest and an open mind to switch to what the client is looking for. So basically: “It is all about the customers”.
He speaks 7 languages, among them, Portuguese, Japanese, English and French.
After working as a Tour Guide for 7 years in Spain and Europe, he started working as a Local Guide in Barcelona in 1996. He also worked at the Sagrada Familia to get a deeper knowledge on Gaudi.
“My favourite moment is when we get into the Sagrada Familia, and my clients are looking up with the faces full of joy…”
