After a scenic half-hour journey from the pier, arrive at the Ribera district and Palau Dalmases. This stately 17th-century manor is a wonder of Catalan Baroque architecture boasting a gracious inner courtyard with Renaissance staircase, decorated spiral columns supporting graceful arches and remarkable sculptures of mythical subjects.
Indeed, Palau Dalmases is designed to delight the senses, a feat accomplished even more impressively as you enjoy a marvelous opera performance. You will hear a collection of operatic pieces by Handel, Purcell, Rossini and Puccini and other famous composers.
Having savored treats for the eye and ear, next enjoy treats for the palate. Stepping into Palau Dalmases's sumptuous bar furnished with antiques and original works of art, sample tapas served with wine, champagne and soft drinks. Meanwhile, take in the ornate surroundings evocative of another time.
Leaving Palau Dalmases, board your motor coach and return to the pier.
