What To Expect
In Barcelona, history and traditions go hand in hand with emerging fashion and new trends in cuisine, culture and art.
To experience all the nuances and imbibe both faces of Barcelona, our tour begins in the historic centre with a sightseeing tour from the bus that will take you up the elegant Passeig de Gràcia, where you will see the most famous Gaudi houses, Casa Batlló and Casa Mila (La Pedrera) as well as other majestic buildings of the Modernism era.
Following this immersion in the Barcelona of traditions, we approach the key to the change of the city. With the hosting of the Olympic Games in 1992, Barcelona opened itself up to the sea and became economically and socially invigorated. What better way to immerse ourselves in the era of change than to pass by the Port area of Barcelona that includes the Arc of the Trionf, Ciudadela Park, the Olympic Village, the Olympic Port, the beach and the fisherman’s quarter, called Barceloneta, the Port Vell, Plaza (square) de Colon with its famous Columbus monument, indicating which way he sailed to discover the Americas. This point is also the beginning of the famous Ramblas of Barcelona.
We will continue driving up till Montjuïc Castle where you will enjoy a cable car ride with precious views of the city. The bus will pick you up at the last station and we will continue our Montjuïc visit passing by the sports facilities built for the 1992 Olympic Games: the Lluis Companys stadium, the Palau Sant Jordi, the Olympic swimming pool Picornell until we get to the Poble Español (Spanish Village), a selection of typical buildings from all over Spain, showing a selection of the handcrafts of our country.
