Barcelona, que bello horizonte, como una joya en el sol.
Por ti seré gaviota de tu bella mar Barcelona,
allá donde sus gentes saben romper el hielo,
allí donde la amistad da sus frutos,
hace ya tiempo que ella cultivó un estilo
Barcelona es una ciudad extraña,
porque cuanto más feo el tiempo,
más hermosa la ciudad.
Y el más feo de los edificios,
es el más coherente de la ciudad Barcelona,
es un museo a cielo abierto.
Fredy Mercury & Montserrat Caballé

Barcelona is a very practical city for shopping, since both the center and the historic part of the city have a concentration of the biggest brands. Fashion is particularly well presented by the big brands that have shops in Barcelona, as well as shops from young creators which are more present. We also offer the possibility to shop accompanied by a “Personal Shopper”. We end the day with a relaxing Arabic bath in the heart of the city, in the neighborhood of Born, where the fortress defensive walls were raised. Aire de Barcelona has been faithfully restored as an old spa. You will also enjoy the steam baths in the Hamman and feel the touch of the thousand- jet bath.
This is a day dedicated to winetouring. Practicing this type of tourism in a community like Catalonia is more than tasting wines and cava (sparkling white wine). It means being able to admire acres of vineyards near the sea, taste wonderful Mediterranean food and enjoy the richness of the cultural and architectural heritage of the area. Big names like Penedès, Alella and Pla de Bages attract thousands of visitors each year to the most rural areas in the province, and makes wine tourism play an increasingly important role in Barcelona. We organize creative tourism experiences, especially prepared for wine lovers.
