School Trips to Barcelona

Barcelona, capital of Catalonia, is the cultural centre of northern Spain. This bustling, lively, historic city has an excellent range of art museums, fine architecture, historic monuments and amusement parks which will appeal to students studying a variety of subjects.

One of the top visits is the magnificent La Sagrada Familia Basilica designed by Antonio Gaudí which has been under construction since 1882. It has only recently (June 2019) been issued the works license by the Council of Barcelona that will allow the Construction Board of the Sagrada Familia to continue building the masterpiece project of Antoni Gaudí.

Barcelona is full of Gaudi’s unique buildings including Casa Batlló and Park Güell as well as museums and exhibitions explaining his life and work. Gaudi’s distinct style appeals to all, whether you are interested in architecture or not, and most can be appreciated from the outside for free.

Alongside its cultural heritage Barcelona boasts a stunning Beach with up to 2.8 miles of coastline and has been voted the world’s best beach city by National Geographic. The Mediterranean climate means that the city can be enjoyed all year round. If all this does not whet your appetite, you can also take a tour of the famous FC Nou Camp Stadium and enjoy some traditional tapas for a real flavour of Spain.

Do not be afraid to use public transport – the metro is well connected and easy to navigate. Make use of a multi-day metro card to save money! This also allows you to fully Immerse yourself in the local culture by trying food from markets and tapas at restaurants.
