The creative spirit of Spain’s Catalunya — the land of Picasso, Gaudí, and Salvador Dalí — is on a roll. We’ll get caught up in the festivity of Barcelona, enjoying the vibrant street scenes, tasty tapas, and pedestrian-friendly Gothic Quarter. Then we’ll take a scenic side trip to mountaintop Montserrat, and finish with an artist’s pilgrimage along the Costa Brava to Salvador Dalí country. In seaside Cadaques, we’ll visit Dalí’s home, and in nearby Figueres, we’ll experience his playfully surreal mausoleum/museum.
