Note that there's no class (or Friday Club) this week, as we'll be closed Friday, but apart from that we have our social programme as usual.

  • Tuesday 9th | Come with us today to explore the bohemian district of Gracia [map]: interesting history, lovely architecture, great bars (and, in August, a great festa major)! We'll also be seeing one of the less well-known Gaudí works, the Casa Viçens (16.00).
  • Wednesday 10th | Come with this afternoon for a stroll down the Ramblas, to discover some of the amazing things on and just off it — including one of our favourite Barcelona dragons and the Palau Guell, one of the few Modernista buildings to be found outside the Eixample district (16.00).
  • Thursday 11th | Come and explore some of the hidden corners of the Barrio Gótico with us this afternoon, and discover what happens at the Festes de Saint Eulàlia, one of Barcelona's two patron saints (16.00).
  • Friday 12th | Holiday in Barcelona

Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.

Also this week | Copa, semi-final, second-leg, Valencia vs Barça (Wednesday, kick-off 21.00); Spanish League, Barça vs Celta de Vigo (Sunday, kick-off 20.30).
