WALK

Walking is our personal favourite method of travelling around Barcelona.  It’s the best way to see the beautiful architecture and really enjoy the city.  If you are pressed for time a guided tour is the way to go and we can recommend some tremendous and alternative guided walks.

Music Walk
Enjoy the opera house and an intimate chamber music concert and a glass of the famous sacramental wine, Muller, at the city’s most ancient Romanesque monastery, and one of its least-known landmarks: Sant Pau del Camp. At JazzSí you’ll enjoy a vibrant Latin jazz concert while you enjoy a glass of local wine and a plate of tapas.
