Barcelona

Barcelona is without a doubt one of the most exciting cities in Europe. With so much culture to explore, its hard to know where to begin. We suggest that you don’t miss the superbly preserved medieval centre of the Gothic Quarter and the art nouveau exuberance of the splendid houses, palaces and public buildings. These were created by the eccentric genius Antoni Gaudí, whose still unfinished Sagrada Familia church is one of the great architectural marvels of the century.

Apart from the architecture, Barcelona boasts splendid museums, the Picasso and the Miró foundation. Music can be enjoyed in the many venues, not least the prestigious Liceu opera house and the quite astonishing Palau de la Música Catalana. But of course Barcelona is not just culture. Street life is intense and constant; varying from century old grocery shops to designer boutiques and everything in between.  It is a food lover’s paradise, and its culinary delights will stimulate your taste buds. Whether it be to visit the astounding 150 year old Boquería Market, or to sample traditional Catalan cuisine, browse for every imaginable kind of tapas, or revel in state of the art stellar gastronomic innovation, Barcelona definitely has it all.

For a day out of town, Barcelona offers many splendid excursions.  For example, the spectacular mountain setting of the great monastery of Montserrat (great also for hiking); the surrealism of the “Theatre Museum” created by Salvador Dalí in his native town of Figueres, or the enchanting landscapes and vineyards of the home of sparkling Cava, Penedés.
