Art, Culture, and Luxury from the Nineteenth Century
Barcelona is a city with a long and impressive architectural history, revealed all along its avenues and in the buildings belonging to the Catalan gentry. This Majestic Experience departs from the normal tourist circuit and introduces the "Remarkable Residences" project, which allows guests to discover some of the city's least recognized, yet most impressive modernist houses. These residences were inhabited by collectors who were also lovers of interior design and art, offering a cultural opportunity available to only a few guests. Included are places such as the Rocamora Private Cultural Foundation, an Elizabethan mansion that houses a private collection of unique works of art from Spain, Europe, and part of the Americas, or the Casa Amatller, a landmark designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, an artistic contemporary of Antoni Gaud, which has preserved the original 1900 furniture. The culmination of the experience will be a private dinner, surrounded by art and history, held in the dining room of one of the houses.
The Chocolate Trail
Only for the sweetest tastes, this Majestic Experience introduces guests to the chocolate industry of Barcelona, the European city that invented hot chocolate. Guests can sense the history around them since the tradition has been maintained until modern times. Mercedes Castell, historian and creator of this magical trip for Majestic Hotel Spa Barcelona, will take guests on a tour of the most traditional chocolatiers, such as Dulcinea or La Granja, along with the more recent ones, such as Chk or Be Chocolat, transforming them into chocolate experts for the day, thanks to her entertaining workshops. Ms. Castell will explain the history of old Barcelona, ounce by ounce while strolling through el Gotico and el Raval.
Created for wine lovers and all those aficionados of the finest gastronomy. The day begins at Port Vell where, after boarding a sailboat, guests can enjoy a cruise filled with marvelous and novel panoramas of the city. A journey of less than an hour will take you to the Alta Alella wineries in the Maresme region. The vines are planted on slopes between altitudes of 100 and 250 meters, creating a spectacular view of the vineyards, with Barcelona and the sea in the background. An expert sommelier from the winery will guide you in the enjoyment of local wines. The visit ends in the best way possible: a meal with a private chef who will reveal the flavors of local cuisine, pairing them with the winery's offerings in a unique environment.
Art and luxury come together to pay homage to one of the illustrious guests of Majestic Hotel Spa Barcelona: Joan Mir. This Majestic Experience is meant for art lovers, families, and friends who want to dip into Joan Mirs life. Start the journey with a guided visit to the Fundaci Joan Mir, in Montjuic (Barcelona), or choose a private tour through it, for a more personalized experience. This tour includes exclusive access to the archives of the museum, (an offsite area of the collection) where you could find the artist's original hand notes.
Later on, a private transfer service will take you to the artist's lifelong house, Fundaci Mas Mir (Montroig del Camp, 1 hour from Barcelona), where Joan Mir used to live with his family and one of the true inspirational places where he created some of his most valuable artworks.
To conclude this experience, you will be able to discover the taste of the local gastronomy in a very special restaurant placed in a typical Catalan hermitage, which Mir used to frequent. Let yourself be guided into the most artistic Majestic Experience.
From Farm to Table
From Farm to Table is a Majestic Experience that deeps into the essence of Restaurant SOLC: tradition, local produce, and respect for the environment.
A private transfer service will pick you up at the hotel and take you to our own kitchen garden in Maresme just a few kilometers from the restaurant and from the Mediterranean Sea where every morning the vegetables are selected and collected to be served fresh daily at Restaurant SOLC.
The second step of the journey will take you to Alta Alella Winery, just a few kilometers far from there. A family business that respects the process of making wine and the nature of the product, paying tribute to native varieties of grapes and where AA Cau den Gens Cuve Majestic is made exclusively for Majestic Hotel Spa Barcelona, using environmentally friendly viticulture in a process in which our sommelier is involved.
The experience ends at Restaurant SOLC, a gastronomic space that embraces the produce we get from the sea and the land, searching for recipes that respect and emphasize their virtues in a clear tribute to Catalan cuisine. You will taste an ephemeral menu that varies with the seasonality of the produce used to make it so that we offer only the best of Catalan cuisine.
Barcelonas Fishermens Market
One of the great hidden gems of Barcelona is its fishing port, and with it, its market, where everyday fishermen, caterers, and professionals come together to bid for the best prices and the most succulent fish. Anna Bozzano, marine biologist, will explain how the market functions, the art of fishing, and the structure of the port. This is an exclusive tour since Ms. Bozzano is the market's only approved tourist guide. After tasting a selection of the best tapas in the landmark bars of the classic fisherman's neighborhood known as "La Barceloneta", this most maritime Majestic Experience ends with an exquisite supper in which a chef prepares for guests the fish that was bought that very afternoon at the fishermen's market.
Majestic Experience requires an additional charge and prices vary per season. These can be booked and customized with the help of the propertys concierge.
