Today (Monday 6th) is holiday in Spain (so there's no class today!) but we have a full social programme for you for the rest of the week:
- Tuesday 7th | Our walk this afternoon takes us round the barrios of La Ribera and 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 (16.30).
- Wednesday 8th | 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 (16.30)?
- Thursday 9th | The Pueblo Español (or "Spanish Village") comprises over 100 buildings, many of them traditional Spanish house types, built in 1929 for Barcelona's second Universal Exhibition. Entrance is €7.00 but if you're interested in architecture and traditional crafts (not to mention some shopping!) it's well worth a visit (16.30).
Important We've changed the start time for a social programme. As of this week, join us half an hour later, at 16.30. We meet as before at Ground Floor Reception, by the front door..
