History (Tuesday), a spot of Gaudí (Wednesday), your ideal spot for a selfie (Thursday), not to mention the game on Saturday! — we have it all for you on our social programme this week!
- Tuesday 21st | The Call is the area of narrow streets (which is what Call means) just off the Plaça Sant Jaume that was Barcelona's historic Jewish quarter. One of the most medieval parts of the Barrio Gótico. Why not come with us and explore (16.00)?
- Wednesday 22nd | Our trip this afternoon takes us to the lovely gardens of the Palacio Real de Pedralbes, which was home to the Spanish monarchy 1919-1931 whenever they visited the city, and also takes in the remarkable Gaudí dragon on the gate of the Finca Güell, the summer home of Eusebi Güell, Gaudí's great patron (16.00).
- Thursday 23rd | Note the change from the usual time today: this evening we're going to the spectacular light and sound show of the Magic Fountains of Montjuic (20.00).
- Friday 24th | Join us on the terrace and in the bar after class today for our Friday Club language exchange (19.00-21.00).
Join us in Spanish Reception (C floor), unless otherwise stated, at the times given above.
Also this week | It's the final of the Copa de Rey this week, with Barça vs Valencia (Saturday, kick-off 21.00, in Seville).
