Barcelona has always been a centre of attraction for artists. The mild climate, the Mediterranean light and the friendly population create a fantastic atmosphere for creative work and have made it home to the master architect Antonio Gaudí and much of the great work of Pablo Picasso.
The Royal Academy will open the doors of Barcelona for its Patrons, arranging special access to the most famous sites, as well as experiencing the working cultural life of the city. The itinerary will include gallery tours, visits to public and private art collections, architectural tours of the city and hosted visits to international artists’ studios.
Due to the highly bespoke nature of this trip, the final cost and itinerary are subject to confirmation but no more than £2,850 per person based on two sharing, inclusive of accommodation, all meals, galleries and tours and travel within Barcelona but excluding travel to and from Barcelona.
Booking is now open. Please contact the Patrons Office on 020 7300 5885 to reserve your place.
This event is open to Patrons of the Royal Academy. For information on becoming a Patron please click here.
