Ramp up your imagination and prepare to explore Barcelona from a new angle with three digital experiences that bring a unique perspective to traveling in Spain — without having to leave your living room.

Connect with iconic sights through the lens of a photographer, create a craft inspired by a local legend from a small Spanish village, and learn about composition, colors and styles of collage from an established artist with these online classes from Airbnb.

1. See the Soul of Barcelona with a Photographer

"Spark your creativity and your passion for photography. Connect with Barcelona's iconic and magical places. Inspire and connect with the emotion of your travels. Learn storytelling techniques. Treat this experience like a motivation for your photography and arts. Feel the heart of a city by going from general to detail ... Transport to Barcelona and feel the soul of such places as Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, the Gothic area, the Gaudi architecture, and a local market without leaving your living room."

2. Barcelona Storytelling with Crafts

"Using stories and a fun craft project, we will welcome you to our little village of 200 people in the middle of Spain's Montseny Natural Park. I'll tell you a local legend that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. It is a story about how a little bird is able to help a bandit escape from prison. We'll show you how you can help them from your home with a simple and fun craft! You'll just need some common materials that you can find in your pantry. At the end of the experience, you will have a homemade craft that will bring the magic of nature inside your home."
