Nine visit the Parque del Laberinto… Weren't there ten of us?! | Photo: Barbara Królikowska
October — and still a great time to visit Barcelona, the weather still being warm enough to stroll around in shirt sleeves. Come with us this week and enjoy it, along with some of Barcelona's great architecture.
- Tuesday 1st | Our walk this afternoon takes us to the Manzana de la Discordia, the block on Passeig de Gracia with three of Barcelona's best examples of Modernista architecture — the Casa Batlló (Gaudí); the Casa Amatller (Puig i Cadafalch); and the Casa Lleó i Morera (Domènech i Montaner); as well as to the Casa Milà (also by Gaudí) (16.00).
- Wednesday 2nd | First laid out in 1791, the Laberinto de Horta is one of the most romantic of the hidden corners of Barcelona (as well as being one of the settings for Tom Tykwer's 2006 film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer!). Come along and see it with us (16.00).
- Thursday 3rd | Everyone who comes to Barcelona goes to see the Sagrada Familia but the city has a number of other lovely churches. Come with us today to see the Joyas del Gótico, the "Gothic jewels" of Barcelona — the Cathedral and the wonderful churches of Santa María del Pí and Santa María del Mar (16.00).
- Friday 4th | We've got our very own Oktoberfest at this week's Friday Club. "It's not all about the beer!" says Ana, who organises it all. So it must be about practising all the languages you know, in that case (possibly helped by the beer :-)! In the bar/on the terrace as usual, 19-00-21.00.
Join us in Reception ("C" floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
