One of the best destinations for foodies in Europe, Barcelona is an excellent choice for your food technology school trip!

On your food technology school trip to Barcelona, your group will have a choice of exciting culinary experiences on offer. You can visit the world-famous Boqueria market, with its fresh, colourful produce, or head to one of the famous wineries of the Pinedes region. And you can visit a local catering school or take a tapas-making class.

Many of our groups choose to combine the best of both worlds by staying on one of the fantastic coastal resorts, such as Calella, Lloret de Mar, Blanes or Tossa de Mar. If you choose the same, you could include a day at Port Aventura or Waterworld to complete your trip! And you could also consider making your trip cross-curricular by joining forces with the Spanish, business studies, art, geography or fashion departments at your school.
