Gaudí parallels in Amsterdam
Join us on this walking tour away from the busy city center and discover Gaudí parallels in Amsterdam. The Spaarndam neighborhood had been a social housing project in the 1910s and was built in the style of the Amsterdam School that picked up socialist ideas just like the famous Barcelona architect Gaudí did in his early years.
