The International Rose Festival of Barcelona 2015


This is one of our favorites for this year's competition
Our previous post was about our new Day Tour in the Pedralbes neighborhood of Barcelona. And today we spent the afternoon in one of their gardens to go to the '15th Barcelona International New Roses Competition'. Professionals from around the world bring their best roses to compete for the first prize called 'Barcelona'. The winning rose takes its place among the previous winners in the rose garden of Cervantes Park.

People painting or just enjoying the roses, people voting for the best rose, an orquestra playing, floral art presentations, a demonstration on how to cook with roses ... the competition is the perfect place to have a very enjoyable day.

New Barcelona Full Day Tour: Pedralbes, the Monastery and the Gardens

We are working to have the new The Spanish Touch website ready  as soon as possible. So all the new content is lining up to make its appearance. In the meantime, we want to share with you one of our new Day Tours in Barcelona. 

Check out some more pictures of this tour in our Facebook Page

This morning walking tour will bring you up close and personal with a softer side of the big city, something both removed from the hustle and bustle and yet filled with that distinct Barcelona charm. Visit Gothic churches, modernista gems and enjoy the tranquil beauty of one of the city’s “forgotten” neighborhoods. We will even stop to enjoy a streetside snack as we wind our way through history, legend and a slice of the city that most visitors don’t get to enjoy.

Some of the highlights of this tour include:
  • Pedralbes Monastery
  • Finca Güell: one of Gaudi´s earliest works.
  • Royal Palace and Gardens.
This tour includes:
  • Entrance to the Pedralbes Monastery and gardens.
  • Entrance to 'Finca Güell'.
  • Transfer from and back to your hotel, airport or port.
  • snack along the way.
  • Lunch at a local restaurant to enjoy the Catalan cuisine.
  • Private guided tour of Pedralbes.
  • A bilingual Spanish Touch guide.
