Montjuic: overlooking Barcelona | Photo: Tom Walton
One of the most fascinating things about Barcelona is its history; come with us on the social program this week and find out…
- Monday 19th | Although in Roman times Barcelona was far less important than Tarragona, 100km down the coast, the Romans left behind the remains of the city of Barcino that they founded in 15 BC: the Roman Temple and the traces of the Roman walls on top of which the city's medieval walls were largely built are among the things you'll see on our walk this afternoon (16.00).
- Wednesday 20th | Today's trip takes us to the top of Montjuic to visit the fortress that overlooks Barcelona. From it the city was bombarded on various occasions and it also enjoyed notoriety as a prison. Today, however, it's one of the best places to go to obtain magnificent views of Barcelona (16.00).
- Thursday 21st | This afternoon we're taking on a walk along the Moll de la Fusta, which takes us from the wonderful Catalan History musuem across the old port past the Maremagnum shopping and leisure centre to the statue of Columbus and the bottom of the Ramblas (16.00).
- Friday 22nd | Our Friday Club language exchange is one of the most popular events on our social program. Why not join us on the terrace and in the bar after class this evening (19.00-21.00)?
Also this week For football fans, there's the Joan Gamper Trophy game tonight and the first chance to see Barça at home this season, vs. León CF (kick-off 20.30). The Spanish League also kicks off this week, with Barça vs Elche on Sunday (kick-off 21.00) | Calendar and tickets
