“Upon arrival the students were taken on a tour of the city, which started with a trip to Montjuïc Park and the Olympic stadium. There were plenty of photo opportunities whilst taking in the spectacular panoramic views of the city. The tour moved on to the port and finished with a walk around the La Sagrada Familia.
“The first full day consisted of a tour to Sant Sadurni d’Anoia, where the students learned how cava is produced and how to ensure a quality brand through limited distribution. This was followed by a grape tasting session. In the afternoon we visited the Benedictine Monk retreat at Montserrat, which started with a spectacular cable car ride to the top of the mountain. The remaining two days were spent exploring the regeneration of Barcelona and how it has managed to turn itself from a sleepy port into one of Europe’s premier destinations for both travel and trade.
“There were so many highlights of this trip that it would be impossible to choose the best!”
