– 5 days and 4 nights –


Led by:   Carol Mantle & Norman Peterken


After the Trip in November 2016 we were asked to repeat a Christmas Shopping Trip.   We are planning to be in Barcelona when they turn on the Christmas Lights celebrating the festive season. You will have the option of sightseeing and shopping in the numerous large stores and in the Christmas Markets in the City.


On this trip we will be staying in a four star hotel in the Centre of Barcelona approximately five to ten minutes’ walk from the northern end of the famous and vibrant Ramblas.  Our accommodation will be on a bed and breakfast basis.  For lunch and evening meals you will find a very good selection of restaurants very close to the hotel.

Christmas Market



You will have two full days in which to explore the delights of Barcelona, amongst these is the Palau de la Musica Catalana.





We will be in Barcelona when the fabulous Christmas Lights are switched on.




Roman Amphitheater



During this trip there will be an optional day trip to Tarragona.  We will have the opportunity to visit some of this ancient city’s major attractions including the Tarraco Roman archaeological complex, a World Heritage Site, the cathedral, the old town and the Passeig Argueologic.
