Our social programme this week. Note that if you want to come with us to the Sagrada Familia on Thursday, you need to book your place by Tuesday at the latest.

  • Tuesday 17th | The barrio of Barceloneta was built on reclaimed land and dates back only to the 18th century but once housed Barcelona's fishermen and then, later, factories. Both are now long gone and have been replaced by a lot of noisy tourists, but the district still retains a peculiar, original flavour. Come and explore with us (16.00).
  • Wednesday 18th | Our walk this afternoon takes us to see some of Picasso's Barcelona: it includes some of the most picturesque of the streets of the Barrio Gótico (Petrixol, Avinyó…); places like the 4 Gats restaurant (a bohemian tavern in Picasso's time); the Estación de Francia (from where he first travelled to Paris at the age of 21); and the Carrer de Montcada, where the Picasso Museum now stands (16.00).
  • Thursday 19th | One you just must see: the best known Gaudí building in Barcelona, the still unfinished Sagrada Familia, though it's supposed to be finished in 2026 (see this video if you can't wait that long!). See also some of the cool pictures to be found on the official Sagrada Familia Instagram feed. It's definitely not something to be missed so why not come with us today (entrance €15; 16.00)?
  • Friday 20th | Join us on the terrace and in the bar after class today for our very popular Friday Club language exchange. This week, we have a Flower Power Party for you. Peace and love, brothers (19.00-21.00)!

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