Day 3:Barcelona Tapas Tour in El Raval

Savour the real Barcelona with this delectable tapas walking tour. Try traditional pa amb tomaquet and contemporary appetisers with a glass of wine or beer in local bars well off the beaten track.

Mingle with the locals as you learn about the rough pasts of the Raval and Poble Sec districts, and immerse yourself in the city's vibrant evening atmosphere during this three-hour food adventure

through both these multicultural barrios.


There’s a glass of wine or local aperitif and tapa in each bar (about five are visited), or a soft drink for customers aged 14 to 17. The tour begins in the Raval, a once edgy and run-down area that has

undergone radical transformation and is now inhabited by an eclectic mixture of immigrants, young artists, trendy students and earthy locals. Go native with some delicious tapas in a traditional bodega

before continuing to a bar with a contemporary feel and then head across the Paral·lel with its theatres, music halls and cabarets, and entering the proudly working-class Poble Sec.


You won’t find many tourists in this neighbourhood, so you'll get a feel of how the locals really live. Stop at a Basque tavern for some pintxos and then visit a modern tapas joint, where you can choose

from a wide selection of local wines and highly elaborated tapas.


This tour is an excellent way to discover the real people’s Barcelona; you'll get to meet the locals, learn about the city’s history and culture, and delight in the discovery of new tastes, textures and aromas.

Day 4:Sagrada Familia Tour — Priority Access

Why wait to discover the very best of Barcelona’s modernist architecture? Jump the queues and take in Spain’s most visited monument, Gaudí’s masterpiece. The Sagrada Familia awaits you!


Highlights

- Skip the line entry

- Access to the Nave, Crypt and Museum

- Admire both the interior and exterior of this extraordinary landmark


Marvel at Gaudi’s Modernist interpretation of Gothic architecture with a visit to the stunning temple of the Sagrada Familia, one of the most extraordinary buildings not just in Barcelona but anywhere in the world. Contemplate the glorious exterior of a church that has divided opinion since vanguardist architect Antoni Gaudi’s monumental project first began.


Construction got underway in 1882 but was incomplete on Gaudi’s tragic death in 1926 and work continues today to complete his extraordinary dreamlike vision. Of the 18 spires originally designed by Gaudí, eight have so far been built. On completion some time in the middle of the next decade, the temple will be the tallest religious building in the world


Take time to consider the fabulous interior where Gaudí matches seemingly impossible shapes, forms and textures to create the breathtaking and visionary space before you. Visit the fascinating Sagrada Familia museum to better understand Gaudi’s life and work, and the extraordinary creative mind behind his most ambitious project. It contains original sketches, photographs and models of the history and development of this unique work.


Discover the eccentric charms of this must-see building, which leaves no one indifferent. The Sagrada Familia is a Unesco World Heritage Site and attracts millions of visitors each year. Experience this spellbinding architectural gem without having to queue and spend more time exploring its awe-inspiring interior.
