Music and Markets Tours invites you to join us for an exceptional week of art, music and discovery in the vibrant city of  Barcelona.

A feast for the eyes, ears, and palate, this dynamic city which inspired Miro, Gaudi, and Picasso delights with world-changing cuisine, unique architecture, stellar views of sea and mountain, and exquisite music in fabulous venues. We’ll delve into the Roman roots of the region of Catalonia in the ancient city of Tarragona,  wander the cobbled lanes of the medieval town of Girona, scale the heights of the mountain monastery of Montserrat, leaving time for a beachfront stroll in Barceloneta.

From the fantastical architecture of Gaudi to the quiet palm-shaded cloisters of the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona is generous with its beauty. Miro’s quirky art crowns a hilltop as well as filling a museum. Picasso’s presence is felt in his favorite bars and  restaurants, not just in the Museu Picasso. As we listen to a symphony or a string quartet, we’re surrounded by the beauty of a modernista marvel or an historic cathedral.

This tour, following Music and Markets popular pattern, will immerse you in the best of the region’s music, art, tastes, and places of cultural interest.
