Below is a sample of Excursions Equity can organise for your trip to Barcelona - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for Barcelona

Sagrada Familia

The symbol of Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia is a must visit when staying in this Catalan city. Arguably one of the most spectacular basilica’s in the world, Gaudi’s design is still unfinished to this day. Breathtaking from the outside, the inside of the church certainly doesn’t disappoint either – gaze in awe at the colourful stained glass windows and towering columns.

Parc Güell

A public park full of exquisite mosaic sculptures and buildings designed by Antoni Gaudi whilst in his naturalist phase.

Camp Nou Stadium

The Camp Nou is a football stadium and home of Barcelona Football Club since its construction in 1957. It has a capacity of 98,787, making it the largest stadium in Europe.

Gaudi House Museum

Located in Park Güell, this is the house where Antonio Gaudí spent much of his life, from 1906 until 1926. See furniture designed by him and objects and documents relating to him and his life.

Las Ramblas

Barcelona’s most famous street, Las Ramblas is a boulevard you will likely pass through at least once when visiting the city. Take pictures with the human statues, grab a bite to eat and spend a few hours exploring the local retail shops here.

Poble Espanyol

The ‘Spanish village’ is an outdoor open-air architectural museum. Constructed in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition, the aim was to give an idea of what might be an "ideal model" of a Spanish village containing the main characteristics of all towns and villages in the peninsula.

Gothic Quarter

Explore the Gothic Quarter, one of the oldest districts in Barcelona. Make your way around the cobbled streets and visit Plaça Reial, one of the most beautiful squares in the city and peruse through the many charming shops.


Port Aventura is one of Europe's most exciting Theme Parks and is 109KM West of Barcelona. Capturing the culture and atmosphere of this region you will travel by themed boat or steam train to the other lands.

Dali Museum

Visit the extraordinary Dali Museum in Dalí's home town Figueres, 120 km from Barcelona. The museum is home to one of the largest collections of his work. Even the building itself is a work of art and like no other you would have seen before.

Casa Mila (Le Pedrera)

One of the most photographed buildings in Barcelona, Casa Mila was designed by Antoni Gaudi and is regarded as one of his most iconic works of civic architecture. This building is a true work of art, which every art student should definitely take the time to see.

Casa Batlló

Another great example of Gaudi’s masterpieces, Casa Batlló can’t be missed! Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gaudi used colours and shapes found in marine life for inspiration for this wonderful piece of architecture.

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC)

A must for art & design students, explore over one thousands years of Catalan art at Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, commonly abbreviated to MNAC. Explore some of the finest works of the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Modern art periods here. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

Joan Miró Foundation

Explore the artwork of Spanish artist Joan Miró at one of the largest art museums in Barcelona. Completely dedicated to the Barcelona native, explore some of the finest pieces of artwork, sculptures and ceramics that led him to achieve global fame.

Museu de la Xocolata - Chocolate Museum

An excursion which all your students will love! Learn about the history of chocolate, watch demonstrations, and of course, get to try and bring back home some delicious chocolate - yum!

Boqueria Market

A great excursion for MFL students to try out their Spanish language skills, spend the afternoon exploring the various food stalls at Boqueria Market, considered to be one of the largest food markets in the world. Try out some local cured meat, hydrate yourself with some fresh fruit juice or satisfy your sweet tooth with some mouthwatering churros as you make your way around.

Maremagnum Shopping Centre

Open everyday, Maremagnum Shopping Centre is a great opportunity for your students to practice their Spanish language skills. Here you can find everything from H&M, to Havianas and an official FC Barcelona merchandise store.


Waterworld in Lloret de Mar is 75km East of Barcelona. It’s a water leisure park with lots of swimming pools with a wave machine, waterslides and chutes. There are pancake houses and plenty of places to relax, also the world’s tallest bungee jump tower (80M).

Museu Picasso

Devoted to the influential Spanish artist; Pablo Picasso, whilst you’re here, gain a deeper understanding of the formative years of Picasso at this intriguing museum. Your students can explore the vast collection of his earliest works and the prized Las Meninas series.

Garrotxa Volcanic Park

A must for Geography students, explore the natural landscape of Garrotxa Volcanic Park, around a 2-hour excursion away from central Barcelona. The park is without a doubt, the best example of volcanic terrain on the Iberian Peninsula, spanning over 15,000 hectares, comprising 38 volcanic cones, with the remains of more than 20 lava outflows, and an abundance of flora and fauna.

Montserrat National Park

At the top of the “Sacred Mountain” is a 9th Century Benedictine Monastery with a shrine to the “Black Virgin”. The dramatic location adds to the effect of the spiritual heart of Catalonia. Take the cable car to the top for spectacular views.
