The Highlights of Barcelona Accessible Guided Tour has a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it is entirely step-free, and it encounters very few hills and cobblestones. It did not receive a 5 star rating because it does involves walking/rolling between the sites in the afternoon. If you would like a 5 star accessible tour, you can choose the Essential Barcelona Accessible Driving Tour.

Batllo House 

The Sagrada Familia church is one of the most impressive and unique churches in the world and will be viewed on this Barcelona accessible guided tour. This church has been under construction since it’s groundbreaking in 1882. There’s still a long way to go but it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Your tour guide will explain the history and significance of the church. Due to the potential for long lines, you will need to visit the interior of the church on a separate occasion.
