Make Your Own Catalan Mosaic
Start by visiting the UNESCO World Heritage listed Hospital Sant Pau, and then head off to our private, fun-filled workshop to create your own Catalan mosaic tray.
If there is one kind of art that best describes Barcelona, it would have to be mosaics. world famous Catalan architects like Antoni Gaudí or Lluís Domènech i Montaner used mosaics in their designs.
One of the best examples of Catalan mosaics is the Hospital Sant Pau, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. And there is no better introduction to Catalan mosaics than there, which is why our Secrets of Catalan Mosaics hands-on workshop starts with a visit to Hospital Sant Pau.
To discover the secrets of this magnificent building, you will be accompanied by a fully licensed guide. The visit lasts about 1 hour, and our guide will then walk you to our private mosaic workshop, which is only 10 minutes away from the Hospital Sant Pau.
The 2 hour workshop is fully hands-on, and everyone in your family will be creating their own 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 will be 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 it needs to dry).
