Student Trips to Barcelona

Barcelona is an exuberant city settled by the sea and nestled between the towering mountains of Montserrat. This Mediterranean marvel is steeped in colour, quirks and charm to create a vibrant paradise of construction, including Gaudi’s ongoing design, the Sagrada Família - a symbolic design that encapsulates Barcelona’s rich culture of history, art and design. 

Barcelona is one of the oldest cities in the world, with stunning architecture and historical buildings at every turn. Student trips to Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without taking inspiration from the city’s array of art museums, with works of art from the likes of Picasso, adorning the walls. 

The bustling boulevard of Las Ramblas cuts through the heart of the city and is the ideal place to soak in the atmosphere of this historical yet cosmopolitan capital city. Another great place that should be on your to-do list, is the world-famous Camp Nou; home to arguably the best football team on Earth. Visit on match days and you’ll get to experience the spine-tingling atmosphere of the passionate crowd.

With so much happening in the centre of Barcelona, you could forget that it’s also home to one of the most pristine beaches in Europe. Make sure you have some free time to take a stroll along the promenade and take in the beauty of the golden sands and the azure blue waters of the Mediterranean.

As the capital of Catalonia, this city has a culture all of its own. During your visit, the famous La Boqueria market is not to be missed! From tantalising tapas and fresh seafood to paella and Jamon, the selection of food and drink stalls is truly a feast for the senses.
