Description

Mosaics is what best describes the art of Barcelona, and world famous Catalan architects like Antoni Gaudí or Lluís Domènech i Montaner used mosaics in their designs.

This hands-on activity first starts with a visit to one of the best examples of Catalan mosaics: the UNESCO World Heritage site Hospital Sant Pau. Follow our private certified guide as he/she takes you through this beautiful area and points out the different mosaics. After about 1 hour there, and a 10 minute walk, you will reach our private mosaic workshop.

The 2 hour workshop is fully hands-on, and everyone in your family will be creating a Catalan mosaic masterpiece. Pair up and work on creating your own fancy Catalan style tray. You will decorate it with small broken tiles or harmless broken glass. Who knows, you might become the new Antoni Gaudí or Lluís Domènech i Montaner?

Of course, your creations are yours to keep and are a perfect way to remember your fabulous trip to Barcelona (trays will be brought at your hotel the next day as they will need to dry).

A Truly Engaging Experience

Family Twist provided several kid-friendly tours on our trip to Paris and London. The guides were knowledgeable and related easily to our children. We were all thoroughly engaged because of the professional and friendly guides. The little gifts for the children were a sweet perk.

Family Twist Review

Our experience with Family Twist was wonderful. Our main interaction was with two of their employees, Susanna and Camille. They were prompt, courteous and extremely helpful. One our most recent trip to Paris, Family Twist engaged two guides for us. Each of them was perfect in their own way. For the historic part of the itinerary, we had Katia. She was very knowledgeable and was able to engage a 9 year old for long periods of time. She has great games for my child that entertained him and educated him at the same time. The other guide, Laurenie, is a chocolate expert who gave us a fantastic walking chocolate tour of Paris.
