Barcelona & Montserrat
In February we would like to take you to the most visited city in Spain, BARCELONA. Discover this beautiful city, known not only for the famous La Sagrada Familia but also for the unique works of Antoni Gaudí. You will see that Barcelona offers endless options and things to see. And not only that, we guarantee the best organization with professional guides and a chance to meet other expats and locals. As an further option, you can also visit the famous mountains of Monserrat! We will stay in a 3* hotel and enjoy free time in different restaurants. Experience Barcelona with us!
Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain range near Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary. Montserrat was designated as a National Park in 1987. You will see some strange formations and shapes of the mountains, a monastery excavated in these mountains, and spectacular views at 1,236 meters high. We are going to visit Montserrat on the second day (it is optional: the price of 10€ includes the transport and the hiking guide). You can decide, whether you are walking up to the peak, which takes about an hour, or if you take the funicular (not included in the price). Either way, you will fall in love with the beautiful mountains of Montserrat.

The Trip Includes:
Centrally located 3*** Hotel with breakfast
We will stay in a charming 3*** hotel in the city center near RAMBLA where you can relax after the whole day of sightseeing and exploring the city. The hotel is located in the city centre, so it is close to many important places we will visit. Breakfast is also included, so you can have a relaxed start and we can make the most out of our 2nd day.
The Sagrada Familia Expiatatory Temple is the last construction of Gaudí´s career, a unique site in Barcelona that will also become the tallest cathedral in the world. Its construction began in 1882 and today it´s one of the hallmarks of Barcelona, visited by million of people and recognised worldwide as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Turó de la Rovira, also known as the ,,Bunkers del Carmel” is a place from where you can enjoy an incomparable view of the city and the whole metropolitan area of Barcelona. The place owes its name to be an anti-aircraft emplacement during Spanish Civil War and that´s one of the reasons why the Mirador del Carmel is part of the MUHBA – or Museo de Historia de Barcelona. As one of the most panoramic corners of Barcelona, this is an attraction within the attraction: it shows that the place is not only a vantage point from which to enjoy a 360-degree view of the city, but also an open-air museum that tells an important slice of the history of the city.
The beautiful neighbourhood known as a Gothic Quarter began as a Roman village and still retains some remnants of its glorious past, but at the same time as modernisation continues, you can find an old building right next to a building constructed in the 1990s. It´s the mix of old and new that brings people from all over the world to the Gothic Quarter.
A tour guide will walk us through the most important places of the symbolic ,,La Rambla” and the Passeig de Gracia, one of the most famous and luxurious streets in Barcelona. Here you´ll be able to see one of Gaudí´s best works: the unique Casa Batlló, declared as a World Heritage Site in 2005.
Parc Guell was designed by Antoni Gaudí between 1900-1914 for the benefactor Eusebi Guell. Stretching over 17 hectares, this Parc is covered with undulating shapes, tree-like columns, animal figures and geometric forms. Most of the surfaces are decorated with mosaics, made from coloured ceramic pieces. It´s a special place that is a must-see while visiting Barcelona.
Camp Nou is the home of Barcelona’s famous football club since its construction was completed in 1957. With its 99 000 seats it´s the largest football stadium in Europe and the second largest on the world. Camp Nou has become one of Barcelona´s most important attractions. You can also visit the Barcelona FC museum and go inside the trophy area, as well as visit the visitors changing rooms, the tunnel the players go through to enter the pitch, the mixed zone, the press room and even the pitch, which is a must-see for all football fans.
