ENJOY ALL THAT BARCELONA HAS TO OFFER
Arrive airport where your overseas airport transfer will be waiting to take you to your accommodation.
After breakfast you’ll visit the best known of Gaudí’s creations, the Sagrada Família, which is the largest unfinished Roman Catholic Church. The giant Basilica is one of Antoni Gaudí’s most famous works and has been under construction since 1882.
Then on to Fundació Joan Miró in the afternoon, a place to experience the art of Joan Miró and other twentieth and twenty-first century artists, a space for participation and dialogue.
You’ll then have some free time to explore the famous Las Ramblas, a large tree-lined boulevard that runs through the city, stretching 1.2km. Here there are many shops, restaurants and other attractions and is a great place to immerse in the vibrancy and culture of Barcelona.
In the morning you’ll visit the largest collection of Picasso’s work at the Picasso Museum which houses an extensive collection of artworks by the twentieth-century Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.
Then on to the MACBA to view Barcelona’s major art collection from the past 50 years.
Finish the day discovering Parc Güell, the place where Gaudí turned his hand to landscape gardening.
Today you’ll visit La Pedrera/Casa Milà one of Barcelona’s most symbolic building – now a designated world heritage sight. Casa Mila is regarded as Antoni Gaudi’s most iconic work of civic architecture due its constructional and functional innovations, as well as its ornamental and decorative solutions, which broke with the architectural styles of his day.
In the afternoon, you’ll explore Montjuïc Castle, an old military fort, with a long history closely linked to the city.
