Barcelona, Mediterranean city and cultural capital of Europe, offers a unique beauty thanks to its numerous cultural contrasts.

With more than 2,000 years of history, Barcelona is a city full of life that changes with the light of day, moving all those who visit it. The city has managed to maintain its identity without losing its coexistence, has excelled in design without losing its traditions, and has become a cosmopolitan capital without forgetting its customs. It is a privileged city, which evolves and reinvents itself without losing the heart of what it really is.

Visiting Barcelona and getting to know its people will make this a unique and unforgettable experience.

Explore Barcelona and discover its exciting atmosphere.

Excursiones desde Barcelona

During the courses, we organize plenty of excursions to nearby places with the intention of giving the students the opportunity to get to know more of Spain.

All these excursions are integrated in the academic program and the highlight topics are covered in class.

All of them are carried out by a Coordinator/teacher that will be explaining, in an entertaining and amusing manner, all the important historical aspects of the city.

Vic, Sitges, Girona or Tarragona are some of the destinations.

Important: In some cases, this may include overnight hotel stays.

Visitas culturales en Barcelona

At Instituto San Fernando, we realize that the success of a Spanish language program is not solely dependent on the quality of the classes, but also the development of a cultural activities/free time program which fully immerses the student in the country’s culture.

The cultural activities component of our programs is designed to provide our students with a vision of Spanish culture and society in the most complete and integrated form possible. It is based on diverse criteria, including our high academic standards as well as the personal interests of the students.

All activities are carefully planned, discussed before and after in the classroom, include the appropriate materials and are accompanied by a specialized professor-mentor. We not only teach culture in the classroom; we allow each student to experience the most important aspects of Spanish society through a carefully structured program of cultural visits.

The Casa de la Pedrera, the Casa Batlló, the Gothic Quarter, Paseo de Gracia, Park Güell, the Pueblo Español or the most important museums in the city are some of our proposals.
