Drive along the elegant Passeig de Gracia, one of Barcelona’s most important shopping and business districts, lined with wrought-iron street lamps and some of the city’s most celebrated Modernist architecture. Both the Passeig and the Rambla radiate out from the enormous Catalunya Square, considered to be the heart of the city. Stop to admire Gaudi’s controversial and towering masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia (The Holy Family) Church. Begun in 1883, it is still unfinished.
For the grand finale you’ll head to the Spanish Village, where you’ll find full-scale replicas of the most representative buildings and squares from all over Spain. At the Tablao de Carmen in the Andalusian Quarter you’ll be entertained by a lively flamenco show. This very expressive Spanish dance form features guitars, song, dance, and much rhythmic foot stomping and hand clapping.
