The Best of Barcelona & Gaudi

Discover Barcelona’s diverse architectural heritage as you 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. Stop to admire the facade of the stunning cathedral, richly decorated and adorned with gargoyles.


You’ll become well acquainted with Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona’s celebrity architect – his unmistakeable style with its organic shapes, twisted iron sculptures and colored tiles is hard to miss. Special arrangements have been for you to visit his towering masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia (The Holy Family) Church. Begun in 1883, it is still unfinished.


Encounter Spain’s architectural diversity as you stroll the narrow lanes and squares of the Spanish Village. Here you’ll find full-scale replicas of the most representative buildings from all over the country, as well as craft workshops, exhibitions of contemporary art and shops offering quality souvenirs. There will be free time for shopping or lunch on your own.


Note: Should the Sagrada Familia be closed, you’ll visit Casa Mila, another of Gaudi’s masterpieces. Tour is offered on Norwegian Epic round-trip Rome (Civitavecchia) sailings only.
