We've got one of our favourite Barcelona barrios on on our social programme this week — the Born — and lots more besides.
- Tuesday 26th | 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 medieval city of Barcelona in the old Born Market, seen in the photo, above (16.00).
- Wednesday 27th | Come with this afternoon down the Ramblas, to discover some of the amazing things on and just off it — including one of our favourite Barcelona dragons and the Palau Güell, one of the few Modernista buildings to be found outside the Eixample district. If you are an Antonioni fan, the Palau Güell is where Jack Nicholson meets Marie Schneider in The Passenger (16.00).
- Thursday 28th | Note the change from the usual time today: this evening we're going down to the Plaza España to see the spectacular light and sound show of the Magic Fountains of Montjuic (20.00).
- Friday 29th | Join us this evening at our Friday Club language exchange. It's a great place to kick off the weekend — and to practise your Spanish !! 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.
