Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Ruiz Picasso. The Museum opened in 1963 and reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona. Great art workshops are available for all key stages.

La Rambla

Lined with street artists and flower stalls, the famous Rambla will take you down to the sea, passing by places such as the Liceo Theatre, the Boquería Market and the Güell Palace en route. And what could be better than a gentle stroll along the promenade to end a day in Barcelona? La Rambla changes its name depending on the area it passes through, hence the popular use of the plural La Rambla. Downhill towards the sea, it is La Rambla de Canaletes, the section closest to Catalonia Square. On one side stands the fountain of the same name which, according to legend, grants the privilege of returning to Barcelona to the visitor who drinks of its waters.

Port Vell

This area can be accessed via a bridge opposite the Columbus Monument and includes an Aquarium, Imax Cinema and Shopping Centre Complex.

Flamenco show / lesson

Spend an evening watching and discovering the art of Flamenco. Flamenco is about love, happiness and passion. Learn the characteristics of the style as you participate in a class at the famous Palacio del Flamenco.

Chocolate Museum

The Chocolate Museum is a great way to learn the history of chocolate and see life-size chocolate characters and replicas of famous monuments. There is also a chocolate workshop where you can learn how to make your own chocolate or just watch as its being made by the experts
