  • Bermejo’s painting at National Museum of Art of Catalonia

Barcelona’s cosmopolitan feel and reputation for modernist art often mean that its Gothic art treasures pass unnoticed, despite their considerable worth. We will learn more about the greatness of this ancient city and the old Crown of Aragon by visiting the excellent Gothic Art collection of the Catalonian National Museum of Art (MNAC). A trip to the Pedralbes Monastery sees us being welcomed by a spectacular Gothic cloister, unrivalled in its size. The Monastery also houses a nun cell wondrously decorated with early 14th-century frescoes of Italianate Gothic style.

In the afternoon we will explore the city’s oldest quarters and visit the former Royal Palace and Chapel, the majestic Cathedral, and the Santa Maria del Pi church, with its imposing bell tower and giant rose window.
