TRA 168 Explore Barcelona and the Catalonia Region

Course Description

The region of Catalonia, with its major hub, the wondrous city of Barcelona, awaits you. Come with us as we explore Barcelona's Roman ruins beneath the city's medieval Gothic Quarter. Admire the vast architectural wealth of its Renaissance district. Experience the multiple Modernist creations of Gaudi's genius. And, fantasize at the futuristic skyline of the contemporary era. Venture with us as we leisurely stroll up and down the Passeig de Gracia and other promenades, just as they were originally designed to be strolled. Dine at the Quatre Gats restaurant/cafe where Picasso used to hang out, and admire the 100-year-old painted wall tiles. All aboard the tram to Mount Tibidabo and Montjuic, as we set out to appreciate the greatest museum collections and gardens imaginable. Barcelona is a world city of art, food, history, architecture, multilingualism, intellectualism, sport, and modernity.

Outside Barcelona, join us as we enter and study medieval monasteries, visit an ancient paper mill where we'll learn how to make paper, learn about the world of a former Roman colony, descend into Spanish-Jewish culture, and trod the paved Roman road connecting Gallia with Hispania.

Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia await you!
