From the brilliant architecture and the pounding rhythms of flamenco to the beautiful beaches and allure of an afternoon siesta, it is no surprise that tourism remains one of Spain's most important industries. Students can hone their Spanish-language skills while exploring Barcelona's rich culture, vibrant artwork, incredible seaside views and innovative food.
