Barcelona - Music Tour Specialists

Barcelona and the Costa Brava have so much to entertain that tours always find the perfect balance between
performance and fun. 

Warm evenings, outdoor concerts and high culture

Along the Costa Brava, you can relax on stunning beaches, soak up the buzz of Barcelona and perform concerts in magical locations, such as the magnificent Montserrat Abbey.

Montserrat sits on a mountainside outside the city of Barcelona, and the Monastery of Montserrat, the crowning jewel of the town, is perched atop the 4,000ft mountain. Home to some 80 monks, and at least 900 years old, the monastery is an important place of pilgrimage for Christians across the world. The views are breathtaking and the atmosphere remarkable, so you won't be disappointed. Other performance venues include the imposing Barcelona Cathedral, the cloisters of Barcelona's Seminary and Theology University, and the austere convent of Santa Clara. There's plenty of choice for everyone, whether you're enchanting audiences with a delightful acapella repertoire or pumping out beats in a band. 

Art galleries and people watching

The region is a fascinating province, hugely influenced by Spain's second largest city, Barcelona, which will offer your students a wonderful combination of culture, history, art, architecture and leisure. Art aficionado's will be more than satisfied with works of Gaudi, Dalí and Miro amongst others, and those who enjoy people-watching will love walking down Las Ramblas.

Park Guell

Barcelona

Barcelona’s most famous treasures are the works of the architect Gaudi, including the cathedral, La Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell because he wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona's aristocracy. It is a strangely beautiful environment and undeniably artistically unique. If you're visiting the park by metro then be prepared for a 20 minute walk, the last 200 metres of which is up a steep hill.


La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia is one of Gaudi's most famous buildings and it has been in construction since 1882 and is not expected to be completed for another 30 to 80 years.


Picasso

The Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum was built at the express wish of the artist himself. It is situated in the gothic Palau Aguilar and has 39 of Picasso's works as part of its fixed exhibition. Picasso felt a strong affiliation with his city and began donating his art to it in 1919, making his love of Barcelona possibly one of his longest relationships. The museum website has an extensive list of resources for students aged 4 to 18.

Figueres

Figueres

For a day trip away from Barcelona, go to Salvador Dali’s birthplace to see the Dalí Theatre Museum, which he spent 10 years of his life dedicated to. Its peculiar status as the world's largest surrealist object has given rise to its popularity and the fun spirit of the place makes it a favourite among students.

Barri Gotic

The Barri Gotic

The Barri Gotic area, or Gothic quarter, is the first choice for many visitors to Barcelona as it is the cultural hub of the city with a real vibrancy to its day and night life. The area was once a Roman settlement and has much in the way of historical architecture. In the heart of the district is the huge cathedral, with a beautiful courtyard full of plants and geese! Aside from ambling through the tightly winding streets, there is plenty to do in the way of shopping with some high-end boutiques alongside more budget options.

The most famous street to walk down is undoubtedly, 'La Rambla'. It is the Champs-Élysées of Spain, but much more pedestrian friendly because of its wide, American boulevard, feel.


Nou Camp

Nou Camp

For football fans, no trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit to the Nou Camp Stadium, which is the third largest in the world, with a capacity for 110,000 people. Take a tour of the players' dressing room, press conference area, VIP lounge and get the chance to sit in the players' benches.

Montserrat

Monastery of Montserrat

Montserrat is situated on a mountain outside Barcelona, and the monastery of Montserrat, the crowning jewel of the town is at the top of the 4,000 foot mountain. It is home to 80 monks, and has existed at Monserrat since the 11th century, when apparently, the Abbot-Bishop Oliba received instructions from the Virgin Mary. The reason it is such a sacred place is because in around 50AD, St. Luke was supposed to have carved a statue of the Black Virgin, where it was rediscovered in 880AD. Since then, it has been a popular place of pilgrimage for Christians across the world including several Popes. There are also some breathtaking views!

Testimonials

We had a very successful trip to the Opal Coast. The accommodation was excellent and the animateur did a fantastic job immersing our students into the French language and culture. All of the staff at Voyager were extremely helpful and recommended a selection of excellent activities that the students all thoroughly enjoyed. We are already planning our return visit for next year! Grace Chubb, Charters School
