Barcelona & Beyond

With its enchanting Gothic quarter, lively cosmopolitan streets, spectacular modern structures, relentless creative spirit and cutting edge cuisine, Barcelona makes a fascinating place to visit.

Gaudí is the essence of Barcelona; the Sagrada Familia is the city’s icon and his other fantastical works – Parc Guell, Casa Milà, Casa Batlló – continue to be the inspiration for today’s designers. Gaudí was one of several ‘modernista’ architects and we recommend you enjoy a half or full day with our private guide on a half or full day Modernista Tour.

Don’t miss out either on an exploration of Barcelona’s ‘Gothic quarter’ – a wonderful maze of narrow, meandering streets encapsulating the city’s golden age. Beyond monuments and historical sites, we can set up some fabulous food and wine experiences…

The options for foodies here are vast and we encourage you to get involved as much as possible… We recommend getting hands-on, and participating on an Insider’s Epicurean Tour of Barcelona or go further with a Private Cooking Class. We also arrange wine tastings and evening gourmet tours and of course table reservations at the city’s best restaurants.

With Barcelona, you are faced with a myriad of possibilities when deciding where to stay, as some of Spain’s most beautiful and contemporary properties are here. The Madrid & Beyond team keeps abreast of all the hotel openings and is well-positioned to advise you on which property is the most appropriate for you.

The province of Girona, north of Barcelona, offers an incredible abundance of exciting places and activities catering to all interests… the surrealist world of Salvador Dalí, the picturesque fishing villages that stretch up the Costa Brava, charming medieval villages, Jewish Heritage of Girona, beautiful hiking trails, boating excursions by yacht or powerboat, to name just a few… Add in our great guides and friends at wineries, olive oil farms and other artisanal food specialists and there’s enough to see and do for a week, never mind a day excursion!
