Friday (May 1st) is a national holiday in Spain, so don't forget that there's no class — and no Friday Club, either!
- Tuesday 28th | 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), which is further up the street on the other side (16.00).
- Wednesday 29th | The 1992 Olympics changed large parts of Barcelona — among them Montjuïc [Flickr | Wikipedia], which is where we're going this afternoon. Bring your camera or phone along: the views are fantastic (16.00)!
- Thursday 30th | One you just must see: the best known Gaudí building in Barcelona, the still unfinished Sagrada Familia, though it's now getting much closer to completion (see this video if you can't wait until 2026). If you want to go inside, note that it costs a minimum €15 to get in (highly recommended: online booking) but is definitely not something to be missed (16.00).
- Friday 1st | National holiday, school closed.
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Also this week | Spanish League, Barça vs Getafa (Tuesday, kick-off 20.00).
