The MNAC: an outstanding art collection | Photo: Tom Walton
A popular barrio, something arty, something Gaudí, something cinematic: you have all of Barcelona on our social programme this week!
- Tuesday 3rd | Come with us today to explore the popular district of Gracia [general information, 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 works, the Casa Viçens (16.00).
- Wednesday 4th | Our trip this afternoon takes us down to the Plaza España to see the 1000 years of art in the outstanding collection at the MNAC, the Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña (16.00).
- Thursday 5th | 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 (16.00) ?
- Friday 6th | Join us on the terrace and in the bar after class today for our very popular Friday Club language exchange (19.00-21.00).
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Also starting this week | Just down the coast, the annual, excellent Sitges Film Festival (October 5-15)
