La Sagrada Familia

If you can only do one thing, let it be a visit to this unforgettable church.
Step to the rhythm and move to the beat when you experience the unique music and dance that Spain is known for. Take in a performance, mingle in a dance club, or get your body moving in a private dance lesson. No matter how you enjoy it, the beauty of the flamenco is sure to warm your heart and ignite your soul.
Get a taste of Spain with a tapas tour in Barcelona where they serve up small portions of finger-food designed to tempt your senses and leave you wanting more. Soak in the ambiance of a local eatery and pair your tasting with a glass of Spanish wine. Nothing brings people together better than food and wine. You may even walk away with some new friends!
There’s nothing in the world quite like the thrill and exhilaration of watching a football game in the Camp Nou stadium, home to FC Barcelona, surrounded by the roaring crowd of die hard fans. Experience the explosion of passion when two teams take to the field from the comfort of your seat in the visitor’s section. The crowd will lift up your spirits and you’ll get a sense of the camaraderie and competition that fuels this nation.
