See the sights!
There is so much to do in Barcelona. On your weekend away, take in the sights and soak in the Catalan culture for yourself:
Starting your tour off at Casa Batlló, take in the gorgeous exterior of one of Gaudí’s true masterpieces. This beautiful location is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and widely celebrated for its beauty. We recommend entering the house and exploring the Gaudí Cube, by artist Refik Anadol. This art installation transports you to another world with a 360-degree experience of pure colour and light. This pioneering exhibit is not one to miss!
While on the Passeig de Gràcia, why not stop to do some shopping? This famous avenue is one of the world’s most luxurious, with numerous designer brands such as Prada and Dior opening their doors to Barcelona locals and shopaholic tourists alike. Perfect for a fun-filled trip.
