Barcelona, history and traditions go hand in hand with emerging fashion and new trends in cuisine, culture and art. We proposes an itinerary that begins in the historic centre, visiting places such as Via Laietana, the cathedral and its cloister, the Gothic Quarter and Plaça Sant Jaume. Following this immersion in traditional Barcelona, we approach the place of key change in the city. With the hosting of the Olympic Games, Barcelona opened itself up to the sea and experienced economic and social invigoration. What better way to immerse ourselves in era of change when you pass by the Olympic Village and the Olympic Port and then climb Montjuic to visit the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium, the Palau Sant Jordi and the Calatrava Tower.


Afterwards we will visit El Poble Espanyol (the Spanish Village), collection of traditional buildings from all over Spain, demonstrating a selection of the handcrafts made in country and providing the opportunity to taste the famous Catalan cava. And what better way to end the visit than with an aerial view of Barcelona from the cable car, which brings us to Montjuic’s Castle in 5 minutes.


Then in the afternoon visit the monuments of Gaudi, one of the greatest innovators of his time, has left behind numerous treasures for the discerning tourist to discover in Barcelona.
