A living museum of the vibrant, colourful excesses of Modernism - Barcelona boasts more Art Nouveau buildings than any other city in the world - this wonderful city is famed for its architecture, culture, shopping, tapas and above all for its style!
With so much to see and do in Barcelona our included city travel card will enable you to make journeys across the length and breadth of the city. We then recommend you don your walking shoes so you make the most of your visits to each of the attractions.
Take time to stroll down La Rambla, Spain’s most celebrated street. Flower stalls, mime artists, the huge Boquería market, Gaudí’s magnificent Palau Güell and the Liceu opera house, as well as countless restaurants and tapas bars, ensure that progress from Plaça de Catalunya, the city’s central square, to the modern Port Vell area, overlooked by the 200-ft high Columbus monument, is a fascinating experience.
No visit would be complete without seeing the remarkable – and truly awe-inspiring – Sagrada Família, the architect’s towering, unfinished temple which has become Barcelona’s most enduring symbol.
Visiting attractions and free time in a new environment with their fellow classmates builds confidence and strengthens relationships between students. Expanding your students’ cultural awareness makes for a valuable and memorable experience.

The church of La Sagrada Familia was begun in 1882 and in 1883 Gaudi was commissioned to carry on the work, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea and the building continues.
Situated in north Barcelona, the park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings. At the top of the park there is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of the city.
The museum is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the more than 3,800 works that make up the museum's permanent collection.
