Explore one of the most distinctive and beautiful cities in Spain – Barcelona. As the host city for the 1992 Summer Olympics, it is known for its unique architecture, museums, churches and beaches. The fairly flat course will have you starting and finishing below the green hills of Montjuic Park in front of the Magic Fountain. Your race will take you by famous historic sites such as the Camp Nou stadium (home of the FC Barcelona soccer team), the magnificent La Pedrera (the stone quarry) designed by the genius Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and his cathedral masterpiece Sagrada Familia. You will also see the Hosptial de La Santa Creu I de Sant Pau, another UNESCO World Heritage site. Our four-night package will offer you a fabulous taste of what this city has to offer!

I really appreciate the location of hotel to start/finish line. Knowledge of staff relating to marathon details. Jane was extremely efficient and always ready to help out when called upon. She took the initiative to make things better for anyone in need of support.
Marathon tours did an excellent job in selecting Barcelona as one of their race-cation, selecting a hotel that is both convenient and safe, and having a staff service making sure we get our affairs in order so we can really enjoy the trip. I love the route, I think it’s better than Paris Marathon route as we really toured city on foot. The locals were friendly at stores, restaurants or just merely asking for directions. I would love to go back to Spain.
The best part of this trip was seeing friends from Rome/Paris last year. Similarly, I really enjoyed seeing Jane again. We first met in 2016 in London. The whole experience was warm and friendly. Barcelona is a wonderful city, too. I'm glad to see that you offer it again.
