While in port in Barcelona, discover the major attractions of this beautiful city on a full-day shore excursion. With your guide and small group, visit Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell, drive up Montjuic to see the Olympic Ring, and venture to nearby Montserrat for incredible mountain views and a tour of stunning Montserrat Basilica.
When your cruise ship arrives at the Barcelona port, you’ll be picked up by your guide by comfortable vehicle and taken on a small-group tour. Admire breathtaking views of the harbor and city as you drive up the hill of Montjuic to visit the Olympic Ring, the site of the 1992 Olympic Games, and take stunning panoramic snapshots from Montjuic Castle.
Then, visit surreal buildings of one of the world’s most famous architects, Antoni Gaudi. Head to one of his most extraordinary creations, the still unfinished La Sagrada Familia, and stop by Casa Batlo.
See interesting modern buildings like Casa Amataller and Casa Morera on the luxurious shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia. Continue up into the hills to see Gaudi’s lovely urban park, Park Guell, full of multi-colored mosaic sculptures and fairytale houses.
Next, depart Barcelona for a short trip to Montserrat, a nearby mountain, and admire sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. Take a walk through the park and learn about Montserrat’s history from your guide, who’ll point out local shops selling cheese and jam.
Reach Montserrat Basilica, where thousands of pilgrims have journeyed over the century. Learn about the legend of the Black Virgin and, if you’re lucky, catch a performance by La Escalonia, the oldest children's choir in Europe. You’ll then return to the Barcelona port to board your cruise ship.
