School Language Trips to Barcelona
Where the magic of Spain is found
For an adventure that’s as colourful as the land itself, set your sights on a school Spanish trip to Barcelona. Whilst you’ll tick off the big-hitting hotspots, we’ll help you escape the hustle and bustle and experience this well-known city through its lesser-known sights.
You’ll explore hidden barrios full of character, treasure-hunt your way around the city’s quieter corners and whip up some authentic Spanish food in a cookery lesson. From the lively spirit of La Rambla and Boqueria Market to the architectural gems of Gaudi, you’ll develop your Spanish in a whole new way.
