The Catalan capital, Barcelona is one of the most-visited cities in Europe, and there are no shortage of reasons why. It’s ideal for a cross-curricular school trip, because this is a destination where culture, cuisine, art, sport and fun are inextricably linked.

Las Ramblas, a collection of interconnected streets, is a popular area to promenade, especially in the evening, where your students can take in a spot of tapas while watching the street performers or browsing the many stalls – touristy, yes, but a good introduction to the Catalan culture.

No school trip to Barcelona is complete without a photo opportunity at the magnificent Sagrada Família, the uncompleted masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi, whose many other works include apartment buildings and parks around the city.The architecture in the Barri Gothic, the heart of the Old City, is of particular note to students of the form.

Another must-do is Montjuïc, a hill on the outskirts. Taking the gondola up to enjoy impressive views of the city, you can give your students a full day of fascinating excursions to various Olympic venues; artworks at the Joan Miró Foundation, and Pueblo Espanol, a small village showcasing different styles of Spanish architecture.

The Pablo Picasso Museum, housed in five medieval palaces in the Ribera district, features many rare pieces by this most prolific and talented of artists, in particular his Blue period, and several interesting ceramics. For art students, the appeal of Picasso, Miró, Gaudi, and not far away, Dalí in Figueres, is irresistible.

Making this the ultimate school trip to Spain requires a couple more destinations on your itinerary. Firstly, the students will never stop thanking you for the exciting tour around Nou Camp stadium, home to FC Barcelona. And finally be sure and stop for an ice cream on the beach, as it’s considered one of the best in the world!
