CULTURAL IMMERSION

Travelbound believe that truly educational travel experiences involve hands on interaction with the real culture of a country – culture meaning the daily activities, customs and way of life of a people, not just the historic attractions and scenic sites. See what lies beneath the surface through these unique and immersive experiences:

  • Flamenco dance class or watch the experts perform the quintessential Spanish dance
  • Explore Spain’s first love of football with stadium tours
  • Eat your way through Spain with traditional cooking classes, tapas tours and market visits
  • Experience what was once a common social phenomenon during the Arabic domination of Spain in a traditional Arab Bath

LANGUAGE & CULTURE

Whether it’s walking the streets of sprawling metropolises like Madrid and Barcelona or quaint medieval towns, students are given every opportunity to practise their language skills in hidden cafés, street markets and tapas bars. We will work with you to ensure that your tailor-made language tour to Spain is a truly engaging and immersive experience for your students. Depending on the experience you are looking for, language schools can also be chosen that are located in big cities or smaller towns and villages.

ART & LITERATURE

Picasso, Gaudi, Dali – these influential artists and architects of the twentieth century have all left their own unique imprint on Barcelona.  A city whose very streets are brimming with artistic treasures waiting to be unearthed.

MUSIC & PERFORMANCE

With its warm weather, traditional cuisine, a fantastic artistic tradition, plenty of great venues and welcoming audiences, it’s easy to see why Spain is such a great destination for a music tour. Don’t miss the bustling Catalonian city of Barcelona or visit Madrid with its history and cultural heritage.

The Highlights of Spain

BARCELONA

  • Las Ramblas: Spend some time exploring this pedestrian street – popular with locals and tourists alike. There are plenty of restaurants, shopping, night life and street performers to keep visitors busy. Plus, the monument to Christopher Columbus is only a stone’s throw away from the port.
  • Gothic Quarter: Discover the narrow, winding streets of the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona. Spot the contrasts between the old and new architecture amongst the bustling commercial area of Calle Portal de L’Angel. Highlights of the area also include the Barcelona Cathedral!
  • Sagrada Familia guided tour: Another of Gaudi’s masterpieces, this large Catholic Church is still under construction even though it was started in 1882. Gaudi spent the last 40 years of his life working on this project and it isn’t scheduled for completion until 2026.
