Spain 1: Barcelona and Santiago

Spain  1: Barcelona and Santiago

Deborah Burgess is our guide as we begin our tour in Barcelona, the exciting and stylish capital city of Catalonia, which is an autonomous community in Spain located along the Mediterranean coast about 100 miles south of the Pyrenees mountains. Host to the 1992 Summer Olympic games, here we find the Olympic Village, Stadium and el Puerto Olímpico; also we see the city’s magnificent Cathedral, Montjuich Mountain and the Gothic Quarter in the "old town," which dates back to medieval days. Next we visit "El Pueblo Español," a recreated village where we see replicas of Spain’s most typical villages; then we take a walking tour of Las Ramblas, viewing unique buildings of the famous architect, Antoni Gaudí. Next we travel where millions have traveled, to Santiago, the third most important city in Christendom, and visit its famous Cathedral, which is the burial place of St. James the Apostle, the Patron Saint of Spain; also we see a variety of street musicians, artists, cafes and shops; then view the Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos (Inn of the Catholic Kings), which houses many of those who visit the Cathedral. Also we view its university, which is one of the oldest in the country. Traveling an hour south, we end our tour visiting the fishing village of Combarro, considered a national monument for its inspirational beauty, and loved for its wonderful seafood, such as that found at the Tavern by the Harbor. 03/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
