Barcelona is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world.
It has a huge number of attractions including a city centre which retains its medieval street plan; some stunning modernist architecture including several buildings by Gaudí – Spain’s most famous architect; dozens of museums including one dedicated to Picasso, another to Miró and yet another to Barça, Barcelona’s world famous football club!
Barcelona is almost as lively at night as it is during the day and it has a unique, exciting atmosphere, which provides the visitor with a truly unforgettable experience.
There are major arts exhibitions throughout the year and concerts and shows of different kinds happening all the time.
You have more information on what’s on in Barcelona on our blog, where you will see what we have on for you on our social programme this week. Do come along on that, by the way — it’s a great way to get some more practice for your Spanish, as well as to explore the city with an expert guide.
The city enjoys an almost perfect climate making it an ideal place to be at any time of the year. It even has its own sandy beaches, which are less than 15 minutes away from the school.
The city’s geographical position also makes it the easiest (and cheapest) Spanish city to reach from the rest of Europe and there are direct flights from most cities in the world to its prize-winning international airport.
