Barcelona has a fascinating history; come and discover a little of it on our social programme this week:
- Tuesday 25th | Join us on our walk today round the popular barrio of El Born, full of cool bars and history, home to the lovely church of Santa Maria del Mar and the Estación de Francia, as well as the fascinating remains of the pre-siege city of Barcelona in the old Born market (16.00).
- Wednesday 26th | Take a walk with us this afternoon along the Moll de la Fusta [see photos], 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).
- Thursday 27th | Come with us for a stroll this afternoon to see something of the Ruta del Modernismo. We can't and won't (promise!) take you to see all the 116 Modernista buildings officially included in the Route, but you'll get at least a taste of Barcelona's magnificent architecture. Interesting, and not all of them by Gaudí (16.00)!
- Friday 28th | It's a long weekend — Monday 1st is a holiday — and what better place to kick it off (as well as practise your Spanish) than at our Friday Club language exchange? In the bar/on the terrace, 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 Osasuna (Wednesday, kick-off 19.30); Español vs Barça (Saturday, kick-off 20.45).
And at the CCCB, April 29 to June 5, there's the outstanding World Press Photo exhibition (closed on Mondays). One not to miss!
