Gaudí’s inspiration. A paradise amongst vineyards and sea
Discover Gaudí's most secret treasure in Santa Coloma de Cervelló, or the scent of rum in Sitges. Become a casteller (human tower) for the day or travel along the Garraf coast on a jet-ski. Enjoy all this along with a spot of Penedès wine and cava.

Touching the sky. From Montserrat to La Pedrera
Reach the clouds at the ageold monastery on the incredible mountain of Montserrat. Or under the moonlight back in Barcelona, on the roof of La Pedrera. Afterwards, travel through the roots of a village that saw its history change in 1714. Unforgettable.

Stones with soul. Art with a capital A
Montserrat isn't the only ancient monastery you can find close to Barcelona. Sant Cugat is also a pure work of art. As are Seu d'Ègara or the modernist structures of Terassa. Visit them all in a tour including an evening meal in a medieval palace.

Adrenalin and excitement. From high speeds to tranquil lands
Looking for a thrill? Drive a top-of-the-range car round the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, surround yourself by birds of prey in full freedom, or visit a church constructed within one of Spain's best preserved caves. A day to leave you speechless.

Alella. Between sea and mountains
The landscape of its vineyards and its proximity to Barcelona allows for a break, unforgettable due to the richness of its wines and the contrast between the mountains and the beaches.

Other modernists in Barcelona
Modernism in Barcelona is as prolific as the buildings. Beyond the genius of Gaudí, there are dozens of buildings full of symbolism, colour and fantasy.
