This half-day excursion takes full advantage of an opportunity to introduce you to both the historic and modern sides of Barcelona. Not only will you enjoy a look at some of the city's famed avenues and architectural wonders, but you will also visit the remarkable Museum of Catalan Modernism.

Leaving the pier, travel to Via Laietana, a major thoroughfare boasting buildings in the Art Nouveau, Art Deco and neo-classical architectural styles. From here, you will head to Passeig de Gràcia, another of Barcelona's major avenues, known for some of the city's most celebrated buildings, including Casa Batlló by AntoniGaudí.

Of course, one of the most renowned of Barcelona's landmarks is Gaudí'sSagradaFamilia, or the Church of the Holy Family. Construction began in 1883, with the church remaining incomplete at Gaudí's death in 1926. The languid, fluid structure embodies the essence of Gaudí's style. Work continues on the church, but without any sure idea as to whether it's followingGaudís intent.

Admire the exterior of this extraordinary building before continuing to the Museum of Catalan Modernism. The only museum dedicated exclusively to the Catalan Modernism art movement, the museum houses approximately 400 works by names such as Rusiñol, Casas, Llimona, Amau and Gaudí. The museum building itself is of interest, as it is a 1902 modernist structure designed by EnricSagnier.

You will return to your ship after your memorable museum visit.

Please note: It is recommended that guests dress in casual clothing and wear flat, comfortable shoes. Local regulations require motor coaches to remain in designated holding areas; therefore guests will be required to walk approximately 15 minutes to reach the SagradaFamilia. An interior visit to the SagradaFamilia is not included. The order of sights visited may vary.
