Stroll down Barcelona’s most famous street, separating the barrios of La Ribera and the Gothic Quarter. Locals and tourists bustle around the stalls selling trinkets, flowers and pets, the smart shops and Boqueria market, or just enjoy a café con leche while watching street performers.

Tip: Keep your wallet tucked away, as pickpocketing is a problem on Las Ramblas, especially the port end.
Discover the narrow, winding streets of the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona. Spot the contrasts between the old and new architecture amongst the bustling commercial area of Calle Portal de L’Angel. Highlights of the area also include the Barcelona Cathedral!
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. Tip: The last 200m walk to the park is up a steep hill with steps.
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.
Set at the foot of Montjuïc, Poble Espanyol is an open-air architectural museum with streets and squares reproduced to scale. It was built in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition. The aim was to produce an ‘ideal, model’ Spanish village where the architecture, style, and culture of various locations around the country were preserved in one place.
This is one of the largest theme parks in Spain and close enough to visit when staying in the Costa Brava. Discover new and wonderful worlds with magnificent shows and breathtaking magical rides including the tallest rollercoaster in Europe – the Shambhala! The roller coasters and other rides are split into six different sections: China, Polynesia, Mediterranean, Sesamoaventura, Mexico and the Far West. There is also a separate PortAventura Aquatic Park. Opening times vary by season.
Pupils can enjoy the colourful spectacle of this traditional Andalucian art form on stage. The passion, strength and confidence of Flamenco performers make for an unforgettable show. See how they artfully convey their full range of emotions – from humour, happiness and love to envy, anger and bitterness – within a strict framework of rhythmic patterns.
Nine zones stretching from the Placa de Catalunya, through La Rambla, to the edge of the Mediterranean challenge students through a series of team-based tasks.

Why groups like it:
This vibrant city teems with life, and school groups get enthused by its art, culture, food and language.
Students can get absorbed in Spanish culture and tradition in stunning Seville, the largest city in Andalucia.
