Barcelona's Best

Experience Barcelona’s diverse architectural heritage. Stroll the narrow streets and handsome squares of the Gothic Quarter, lined with medieval buildings and scattered about with remnants of walls and other constructions from an earlier Roman city. View the magnificent cathedral and the palace of the kings of Aragon.


You’ll become well acquainted with Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona’s celebrity architect – his unmistakable style with its organic shapes, twisted iron sculptures and colored tiles is hard to miss. Special arrangements have been made at his towering masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia (The Holy Family) Church, so you can visit this treasure without having to stand in a long line. Begun in 1883, it remains unfinished to this day.


Drive along the elegant Passeig de Gracia with its wrought-iron street lamps and fine array of Modernist buildings, including Gaudi’s Casa Batllo, with a mosaic façade and undulating roof. You’ll wander through the Spanish Village, where you’ll find full-scale replicas of the most characteristic buildings from all over Spain, as well as craft workshops, exhibitions of contemporary art and shops offering quality souvenirs. There will be free time in the Gothic Quarter to explore, shop or have lunch on your own.


Note: As tour visits a religious site, please dress appropriately - no bare shoulders, shorts, or skirts above the knee. There is substantial walking on this tour, approximately 3 hours and 20-30 steps. Tour is offered on Norwegian Jade only.
