Enhance your trip

  • Arts Santa Mònica is a creativity centre installed on the former Santa Mònica Monastery and exhibits traveling contemporary art.
  • The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art displays a wide range of modern and contemporary pieces and aims to educate, inspire and spark debate. The accessibility of its collections allows it to reach a diverse audience – even those with very little artistic knowledge!
  • The national museum of Catalan visual art located in Barcelona. The museum is especially notable for its outstanding collection of romanesque church paintings, and for Catalan art and design from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including modernisme and noucentisme.
  • Built in the very early 20th century, this idyllic garden complex is a world heritage site – and for very good reason! A trip to Barcelona would simply be incomplete without witnessing the unique architecture Parc Guell is famous for.
  • Translated as “Church of the Holy Family” the architecture of this basilica is one of the world’s most interesting and unique. Whether you want to gawk at the beauty of the building or enjoy some reverent peace and quiet inside, the Sagrada Familia is a worthwhile visit.
  • The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (also known by its acronym, CCCB) is one of the most visited exhibition and arts centres in the city of Barcelona. Situated in the Raval district, the Centre’s core theme is the city and urban culture.
  • For centuries Spaniards lived in cave houses as the perfect way to keep cool in beaming sunshine. A tour of some of these houses will allow you to see how this form of housing has developed from its original simplistic style compared with the modern day cava houses.
  • Montserrat is an incredible multi-peaked mountain and for those keen enough to jump in a cable car and venture to the top of a peak, the views are simply one of a kind. Full of sacred coves and many other surprises, a day trip to Montserrat will be unforgettable.
