Barcelona City of Art

from £325pp

Based on 5 days

Suitable for Secondary Schools


Barcelona has long inspired artists, including the likes of Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, whose works are in bold display in the city's myriad museums.

You, like some of them, will be transported to the Middle-Ages by taking a stroll through the shadowy lanes of the Gothic Quarter, past tranquil plazas and soaring 14th-century cathedrals.  In other parts of town bloom the sculptural masterpieces of Modernisme, a mix of ingenious and whimsical creations by Gaudí and his Catalan architectural contemporaries, for which this city is so well known.

There’s so much to do here, especially a school art trip!  A day of Gaudí, Barcelona's favourite son, is a must, and we also particularly recommend visiting Museu Picasso and Fundació Joan Miró.

Testimonials about this trip:

Fantastic accommodation in an excellent location, and the coaches for transfers were great, prompt and reliable.
The Lyceum School June 2018
The security system at the hostel was excellent, the key cards only take the pupils to their floor which was reassuring.
