School Spanish Culture Trip to Barcelona

The most popular destination among our groups, a Spanish school trip to Barcelona will leave your students with a real passion for all things Spanish!

Barcelona is a beautiful, vibrant city, that offers both the buzz of a major city and the chilled atmosphere of a coastal resort. Your students are bound to fall in love with Barcelona, as there’s so much to see and do, whether it’s spotting the architecture of Gaudi and the other Modernista architects, sampling some of the incredible tapas or soaking up the atmosphere on La Rambla.

Visiting the capital of Catalonia is fantastic for Spanish students, as it will help them to understand the diversity of Spain and its autonomous communities. And, if your group are preparing for exams, you may be interested to find out that we can arrange Spanish lessons at a specialist language school too!
