The fascinating Boqueria market. Come with us and see, Thursday
Come well wrapped on our social programme this week, won't you? It's surprising cold for Barcelona, with temperatures this week between about 4º and 14º C (40º-57º F), says the forecast, with rain Monday and Friday. Yes, 4º is cold, for the people of Barcelona 😉 !
- Tuesday 24th | Come with us today to explore the popular 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 buildings, the Casa Viçens (16.00).
- Wednesday 25th | Our walk this afternoon takes us to visit the lovely Parque de la Ciudadela, which stands where once there was a fortress to keep the city subdued. We'll also be going to the Eiffel Tower-inspired Estación de Francia. If you're interested in architecture, and the history of Barcelona, there are some fascinating things to see on today's trip. If it's sunny, a real nice walk (16.00).
- Thursday 26th | Come with us this afternoon to visit two of Barcelona's food markets: Santa Catalina, which is under 10 minutes away the school, and then across the Barrio Gótico to the Ramblas and the Boqueria, the more famous of the two. Both are great places to go for lunch. Bring your camera (16.00)!
- Friday 27th | We have a different "theme" each week at our Friday Club language exchange. This week, we've got a Selfie Festival, which sounds like fun! In the bar/on the terrace, 19.20-21.00.
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Also this week | Copa, Barça vs Real Sociedad (Thursday, kick-off 21.15).
