Gaudi’s masterpiece, this large, sand-coloured Catholic church has fluid forms, towering spires and surfaces overflowing with sculptures. It is still under construction even though it was started in 1882. Gaudi spent the last 40 years of his life working on this project and it isn’t scheduled for completion until 2026.
Gaudi has let his most whimsical ideas take flight in this enchanting landscaped park, high on a hill in the Gracia district. It contains amazing stone structures, mosaics and fascinating buildings festooned with dragons and natural shapes, plus the spired house where the artist lived for most of his last 20 years.
Set in the home of FC Barcelona, the Nou Camp Experience gives students the chance to walk through the most emblematic areas of the stadium. See the away team changing room and the players’ tunnel, the dugouts, the press room and commentators box. Then visit the modern museum with its interactive wall spaces and large-scale audiovisual displays.
Leaving from the historic town of Tossa de Mar, your group can view life under the sea with an excursion along the coast in a glass-bottomed boat. Choose from a trip in the Fondo de Cristal, for the chance to explore the atmospheric caves. Or opt for Magic Vision, to concentrate on the submarine wonders of the Mediterranean.
A trip to Waterworld at Lloret de Mar, is a great way for students to let off steam. Those seeking an adrenaline rush can ride the rapids in rubber dinghies or shoot down the flumes, while those looking to relax can unwind in the food courts or by the pools.
This is one of the largest theme parks in Spain and is close enough to visit when staying in the Costa Brava. Magnificent shows and magical rides – including the tallest rollercoaster in Europe – are split into six different sections: China, Polynesia, Mediterranean, Sesamoaventura, Mexico and the Far West, and there is also a an aquatic Park.
This ancient town has all the charm of a large city but without the crowds. The old town is on the east bank of the river, with pedestrianized narrow streets surrounded by the old city walls, which you can walk along. There is an attractive Jewish quarter to explore, a magnificent gothic cathedral, Arab baths and an archaeological museum as well as great shopping. Photo © Miquel Caimary.
Freixenet offers a guided tour of the cellars and production process, specially designed for schools. Starting with an audio-visual presentation explaining how Cava is created from the viticulture to the final product, groups then visit the cellars, barrel room and the underground man-made caves where the bottles are stored. A small train then takes the group to the tasting hall where children receive grape juice.
Built between 1905 and 1908 in the Catalan Art Nouveau Style, this truly remarkable building is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At its heart it has a metal structure covered in glass and the main auditorium is flooded with natural light. Sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and ironwork are all used to striking effect. Discover this truly magnificent building with a guided tour.
Built in 1847, the Liceu is one of the world’s leading Opera Houses. Guided tours especially conceived for school groups include all the public areas of the Theatre: the Lobby, the Auditorium itself, the Hall of Mirrors and the Foyer. Focus is on the artistic features of the building and on its role in the city’s cultural heritage.
