Barcelona

About the city

La Vanguardia is the name of one of the city’s newspaper, and the vanguard is exactly where Barcelonans are used to finding themselves, for they are residents of Spain’s most progressive city. Beautiful, sprawling Barcelona, filling a great basin ringed with hills on the western end of the Mediterranean, is the embodiment of Catalonia’s artistic genius and commercial inventiveness. Divided into 10 districts each with its own character, the Gothic Quarter is a splendid medieval quarter and the old part of town, which stretches from the seafront to La Rambla. It is here that you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings, narrow streets, churches and the cathedral, La Seu. It also has a good selection of bars, cafes and some quirky independent stores. La Rambla, the most famous street in the city, runs through the heart of the city and provides outdoor theatre on a grand scale. The famous Eixample holds many of Antoni Gaudi’s famous modernist buildings. By far the most famous and extravagant site in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. If he building is ever completed, it will lokk like a model in the crypt, in the meantime, don’t pass up the opportunity to climb or be lifted to the towers, and wander amid the bridges, steps and crannies of the façade. Barcelona is a great city for arts from opera to architecture, and the meeting point between Spain and the rest of Europe.

Park Güell and Sagrada Familia

day 0 - Spanish and English (12:15:00)
Discover the legacy of Antoni Gaudí, Barcelona’s pride and joy and the greatest exponent of Catalan modernism, on this guided tour to Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia.

Highlights
- Visit two of Gaudí’s jewels
- Admire the wonderful connection between art and nature in Parc Güell
- Get to know the location and symbolism behind Gaudí’s masterpiece: The Sagrada Familia

There is no other park in the world like Park Güell in Barcelona. Contemplate this architectural wonder created by Antoni Gaudí as we walk through it accompanied by an expert guide. Explore its points of interest while listening to all kinds of stories around the history of the park and its famous creator. Admire the multicolored staircase dragon, with its colorful mosaic pottery known as "trencadís"; and look at the large central terrace, surrounded by a series of benches that form a great sea serpent. Going down to the lower part of the terrace you will find the vaulted courtyard, with 86 Doric columns in the shape of enormous tree trunks. As you walk along this path you can see how Gaudí masterfully integrated architecture into nature. He even built birds’ nests in these corridors and on the walls of the terrace.

Continue the tour to another of the great wonders of Gaudí, the Sagrada Familia, and marvel at this exceptional modernist building that has already become a symbol of the city. Contemplate its glorious facade, which has provoked all kinds of opinions since the architect began his project. Once inside, you can see impossible shapes and textures that offer a space of illusion and fantasy in which you will be absorbed.

Palma de Mallorca

About the city

Palma de Mallorca is the island's only true city. A city on the island of Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands off the Spanish east coast. The city has become a destination in its own right, rather than simply a stop-over for package holidaymakers en route to the island's many beach resorts, thanks to its increasingly cosmopolitan atmosphere, its avant-garde galleries and museums, a thriving cultural scene and an ever-growing number of chic boutiques, trendy bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Palma de Mallorca is a wonderful place to visit. It has a rich architectural variety as the city has many different styles all merged with one another. The vestiges of Arabs and Jews, the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture of its churches, convents and manor homes, in addition to its complete infrastructure of cultural places of interest, make Palma a unique cultural destination. Don't miss the opportunity to walk on the narrow streets, take a good look at the interior yards and raise your head to see the great architecture on the heights of the different buildings where Gaudi and his disciples left their marks. The city's heritage is a faithful reflection of the peoples and cultures that have passed through the island down the ages. As a versatile, cosmopolitan beachfront city, Balearic’s capital of Palma has something for everyone.
