It's that time of the year when Barcelona is at it's loveliest. Come and see on our social programme this week.
Note that if you're coming with us to the Park Güell on Thursday, you need to book your place before 16.00 on Tuesday.
- Tuesday 21st | Today's trip takes us into the barrio of Poble Nou, which is home to the iconic Torre Agbar (just visible, top left, in our photograph), the nightclub Razzmatazz and some of Barcelona's best street art. 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 22nd | Come with us this afternoon to visit two of Barcelona's food markets: Santa Catalina, which is under 10 minutes away, and then across the Barrio Gótico to the Ramblas and the Boqueria [ video ], the more famous of the two. Both are great places to go for lunch, by the way. Bring your camera (16.00)!
