Olympic Village

The 1992 Olympics held in Barcelona gave the city a much-needed boost. It was an opportunity to develop the underground system and create the impressive Olympic Village. It also marked a renewal of the Games since the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, the reunification of Germany and the end of strict apartheid policies in South Africa. A record 10,563 athletes from 172 nations gathered to compete. Since the games, the complex has become a popular place to visit, with countless bars and restaurants in the Olympic harbour. Take a guided tour around the Olympic Village and see the Palau Sant Jordi Sports Hall, the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Ring.

Nou Camp Stadium Tour

The stadium also offers a tour, which takes visitors into the opposition changing rooms, down the tunnel and onto the pitch area. Fans can see the new dugouts and look out across the magnificent stadium, visit the TV studio, the press rooms and the director's area.

FC Barcelona Museum

The History Museum at Barcelona FC's famous stadium covers the club's long history. On show are the many trophies won, photographic archives, sporting material, and audiovisual shows.

The Collecció Futbolart - Pablo Ornaque exhibition is one of the best private collections of footballing memorabilia.

Guided tour

The best way to get the most out of the city- be guided by the experts. A tour will guide you through the winding medieval streets, find Gaudí's houses and explore Las Ramblas.

Parc Güell

This magical, quite surreal park with beautiful mosaic and stonework throughout is a wonderful place to get a feel for the architect's style as well as a great place to take a relaxing walk, have a picnic lunch or sit and sketch.

Further related visits: Gaudí's houses are occasionally open for public visits. His penultimate work before the Sagrada Familia (which he never completed) was Casa Milà, also sometimes known as La Pedrera. The building was erected on a corner and housed eight private apartments. Not one of the walls on the inside of the building is straight. Guided visits of the building and the roof terrace are available

La Sagrada Familia

Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece is a distinctive symbol of the city. Climbing up the ornate spires you will see views of the city as well as the bird and animal figures hiding in the intricate stonework. Gaudí died before the completion of the site, and parts of it are still under construction.

Salvador Dalí - Theatre Museum, Figueres

Dalí rebuilt the old municipal theatre in Figueres, turning it into his own 'Theatre-Museum' and the largest surrealistic object in the world. As well as his own work, Dalí also included works by other artists, like El Greco and Marià Fortuny. He also created a set of works expressly for the Theatre-Museum, such as the Mae West Room, the Wind Palace Room, the Monument to Francesc Pujols and the Rainy Cadillac. Dalí is buried in the crypt at the museum. The museum has a focus on education and guided tours suitable for all age groups are provided in English or Spanish.
