Our local guide joins us from the hotel as we explore the Gothic Quarter. This quarter is a journey through time to Barce- lona's oldest history, going back to the time of Roman rule; in fact, the Roman grid plan is still visible today in the quar- ter's layout with only a few roads that are open to car traffic. The Gothic Quarter and its medieval streets are a great place to "lose yourself" but never truly get lost. The afternoon is yours to explore Gothic Barcelona. In the evening, we are joined by a local food guide to discover some of the best eats in all of Barcelona. There will be plenty of tastes along the way to make an entire meal! Later, experience the sounds of Spain with traditional Flamenco dancing.

The Benedictine monastery includes a basilica famous for the Virgin of Montserrat (Black Madonna).
