Bring your walking shoes with you on our social programme and come and explore three very different Barcelona barrios.
- Tuesday 8th | Today's trip takes us into the barrio of Poble Nou, which is home to the iconic Torre Agbar, the nightclub Razzmatazz and some of Barcelona's best street art (see photo, above). But come along with us and discover a whole lot more about one of the city's most interesting, most genuine barrios (16.00).
- Wednesday 9th | Transformed for the 1929 Universal Exhibition, the Plaza España is within walking distance of so much: the Las Arenas shopping mall in the former bullring (great view from the top!); Miró's Dona i Ocell (no sniggering!); the outstanding art collection at the MNAC (housed in the Palacio Nacional, built for the Exhibition); the former factory, now art museum of the Caixa Forum… and lots more besides (16.00).
- Thursday 10th | Take a walk with us this afternoon along the Moll de la Fusta, which takes us from the wonderful Catalan History museum, 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 11th | 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)?
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Also this week | Spanish League, Barça vs Getafe (Saturday, kick-off 16.00).
