If you just want FACTS, then sorry this tour is NOT for you. There will be facts and they are important! But never let the facts get in the way of a good Story! It starts in the 19th century. Of industrial change; a city's expansion; new, revolutionary political philosophies; a new artistic movement; and the life of it's architectural genius - Antoní Gaudí. Delve into Modernism's themes and how social, cultural and political forces shaped the physical appearances of these stunning buildings. We'll see stories of on the make property developers; tobacco planters on ego trips; a surgeon with a (possible) inferiority complex; and dragons. Lots of dragons! Then we go to his unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, with an explanation of this unique, beguiling church! As a professional actor I will try and weave my story telling skills with my passion for history, the serious and the humourous, connecting all these strands together and connecting you as well to this phenomenal time.
