Come with us on our social programme and explore Barcelona! What we have for you this week:

  • Tuesday 25th | Join us today on our walk round the Barrio Gótico, the old quarter of the city of Barcelona. You could and will go on your own — but come with us and you'll discover some of the wonderful things to be found there (not least of them, the street art!) (16.00).
  • Wednesday 26th | This afternoon's trip takes us to see some of Picasso's Barcelona: it includes some of the most picturesque of the streets of the Barrio Gótico (Petrixol, Avinyó…); places like the 4 Gats restaurant (a bohemian taberna in Picasso's time); the Estación de Francia (from where he first travelled to Paris at the age of 21); and the Carrer de Montcada, where the Picasso Museum now stands (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 (16.00).
  • Friday 28th | Come and join us on the terrace/in the bar after class this afternoon for our very popular Friday Club language exchange. Fun (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, we have Barça vs Athletic Bilbao (Saturday, kick-off 16.15).
