The Barcelona Architecture Walks speak about architecture without take anything for granted; the information and the language used are understandable either for an expert or an initiated walker. When we say Architecture we mean an intense dialogue between urbanism, politics, culture, economics, history, society and even ecology.
Our aim is to present the essence of Barcelona to the larger public. Though previous knowledge of architecture is not necessary, it is essential to have unrestrained curiosity about discovering the ideas, concepts and stories that fuel the city’s architecture. When we say “architecture”, we are referring to the intense dialogue between urbanism, politics, culture, economics, history, society and even ecology.
All the guides of Barcelona Architecture Walks are practicing architects. We walk with our own critical and contemporary perspectives and a wry smile on our faces because… we love architecture!

In 2014, we were listed as one of the world’s top five architecture tours by The Sydney Morning Herald.
In the last four years (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016), Barcelona Architecture Walks has been honored with the Certificate of Excellence from the travel portal TripAdvisor, which awards the distinction to the top-performing 10% of businesses that deliver consistently great service.
Barcelona Architecture Walks was founded in October 2010 by MIEL ARQUITECTOS, a studio that pursues excellence through an understanding of local synergies, and was inspired by Eoghan Lewis and his Sydney Architecture Walks. With his narrative intelligence and ironic brilliance, Eoghan shows off the city of Sydney to “aesthetes, literati, flâneurs and locals who love familiar terrain from a different point of view.”
