We finish the tour on foot at the bustling Las Ramblas, which runs from the Plaza de Catalunya to the Christopher Columbus monument near the harbour at Port Vell.


Here you can explore the cafés and see the mime artists, and from here you will be ideally situated to explore independently the 'Barri Gotic', or Gothic Quarter in the centre of the Old Town, where some of buildings date back to medieval and Roman times.


Later, we board the ferry for the overnight sailing to Majorca. Accommodation is in en-suite cabins.

  Arta and Cuevas del Drach


Today’s included excursion takes us to visit a weekly market, then to Arta, a pretty, historic town framed by the mountains of the Llevant Natural Park.


Later, we continue to the legendary ‘Dragon’s Cave’, Cuevas del Drach (entrance included). There are three main chambers: Black Cave, White Cave and Luis Salvator Cave.


A steep flight of steps through the caves ends at Lake Martel, considered to be one of the largest subterranean lakes in the world, with beautiful limestone formations, including stalagmites and stalactites.


As part of your journey underground, visitors are accompanied by the sound of musicians performing classical music every hour on a boat.

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
