We've a nice contrast for you on our social programme this week: the medieval church of Santa María del Mar (Tuesday) vs Gaudí's Sagrada Familia (Thursday). Come along with us and see!
- Tuesday 27th | 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 (16.00).
- Wednesday 28th | 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 and — if you're a fan — a selfie coming out of the Hotel Oriente is on your to-do list (16.00).
- Thursday 29th | 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? Note that entrance is €15 and you need to book a place by 16.00 on Tuesday if you want to come with us (16.00).
- Friday 30th | National holiday in Spain, school closed
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Note also that, with this being Easter, the school will be closed from Friday 30th to Monday 2nd (inclusive) and this week will be open only 09.00 to 16.00. Friday Club will back on April 6th.
