Montjuïc

This historic, hilly area provides the best views of Barcelona. Students can explore its wide range of attractions, including the Olympic Stadium and the famous Spanish Village, Poble Espanyol, as well as artisan workshops and tapas bars. The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc offers a spectacular display of colour, light, movement, water and music too!

La Sagrada Família

Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece remains a popular tourist attraction and a world renowned emblem of the city. Students will be amazed by its sheer size and its architectural complexity.

Based on Gaudí’s plans of 1954, this stunning building is still under construction and is due to be completed in 2026. During a visit here, students can walk up the spiral steps to see the openwork spires whilst at the same time stone snakes, lizards and frogs pop out from the architecture.

Las Ramblas

Students will enjoy wandering along this famous street with its variety of shops, cafés, market stalls and street entertainers.

PortAventura

We have been working closely with PortAventura to bring you the very best value tickets.

PortAventura has everything to make a trip here unforgettable! Both students and teachers will have a great time in the two amazing parks. PortAventura Park is an astonishing amusement park divided in six thematic areas with many rides and shows. Costa Caribe Aquatic Park is a water park packed with waves and slides. 

Together you can travel around the six themed areas of the park: Mediterrània, China, México, Polynesia, Far West and SésamoAventura. Take in several shows, from the dazzling wonders of Teatro Imperial in China to the exotic dances of Polynesia and then enjoy the thrills and spills of the many, many rides. 

Water World

The largest water park on the Costa Brava has numerous water rides and even a bungee-jump. 

Port Vell

The renovated harbour area has a number of attractions including the IMAX Cinema and Maremagnum. Students can explore the largest aquarium in Europe, observing over 450 different species and marvellous underwater scenes. Visit the wide range of shops, eateries, an arcade games centre and a state-of-the-art large screen cinema, offering 3D movie experiences, too!
