Barcelona with the ICAA

Experience an insider’s look at the artistic treasures of Barcelona, from the Gothic to Gaudí and beyond.

What to Expect

From some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world and sprawling Gothic churches to the spectacular Modernist inventions of Gaudí and Dalí, Barcelona is an art and design lover’s paradise. In few other places is it possible to see so many artistic periods co-existing in harmony, and the very soul of the city is charged with creative energy.

On this special journey, hosted by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, we will open doors to Barcelona’s finest private homes and art collections and enjoy behind-the-scenes access to such iconic monuments as La Sagrada Familia and Púbol Castle. Along the way, we will meet with the artists and collectors that are shaping the culture of modern Barcelona and explore the city’s top restaurants and galleries.
