THE BEST OF BARCELONA EXPERIENCE
On this Full Day Experience we showcase the very best of Barcelona, unlocking more than 2,000 years of fascinating art, architecture & history.
We start in Barcino, what the Romans coined their city, with visits to the ancient fortifications and the 4 remaining columns of the Temple of Augustus. Next we discover the Gothic Quarter, a stunning outdoor museum housing one of the best preserved collections of Gothic buildings in Europe, its labyrinth streets & charming plazas waiting to be explored. This was also home to a thriving medieval Sephardic community, whose rich cultural heritage we'll trace from the 9th century to the present.
After lunch we explore Modernist Barcelona, a dazzling collection of buildings by Gaudí & contemporaries featuring several UNESCO heritage sites, followed by an exploration of the city's most emblematic boulevard, Passeig de Gràcia. We conclude at Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece, the world-famous Sagrada Familia.
