The Catalan metropolis of Barcelona belongs to the premier league of European cities and combines history and tradition with modernity in a harmonious way. The 2000 years of history led the city into a cultural and economic centre of the entire Mediterranean region; his worldwide fame reached Barcelona by hosting the Olympic Games in 1992. The variety of cost flights to Barcelona and Girona make the journey easy.

Concerts of choirs will be in the Gothic Church of St. Anna in the monastery St Anna, just a few meters from the lively Ramblas, where the life of the city day and night pulsates.

Friendship concerts with hosting local choirs are e.g. in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia, the symbol of the city and built by Gaudi. They give all the participants of international contacts and atmosphere. The common concert is in a concert hall in which all participating choirs with present themselves with a song of their choice. This is followed by a dinner with music and singing with Catalan gastronomy and hospitality.

Sightseeing in Barcelona round off your stay within late-summer temperatures. Optionally, the accommodation takes place in the centre of Barcelona or in cost-favourable hotel on the Costa Barcelona; all hotels are classified in the 4-star category.
