intro on our social programme this week
- Tuesday 15th | Come with us today to explore the bohemian district of Gracia [ map | Wikipedia entry ] 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 16th | One for art-lovers this afternoon: our trip 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 (photo, above) (16.00).
- Thursday 17th | 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 (16.00).
- Friday 18th | It's a long weekend (Monday's a holiday, don't forget!) 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 | In the Spanish League it's the last day of the season this weekend, with Barça vs Real Sociedad (Sunday, kick-off 20.45).
