Day Four -Sábado/Saturday

Last night we had a delicious seafood Paella for dinner at a restaurant called 'Tapa Tapa'. The restaurant was near the aquarium and had been recommended by Mrs Dixon from when she visited Barcelona with Miss Harper and Mrs Stevens earlier in the year.


Today started very early and I managed to go for a run along the seafront. We all met at the Cable car in Port Vell, the views from onbaord were fantastic. The 'Teleférico del Puerto' took us from the port to Miramar, on the slopes of Montjuic.


Next we walked along to the Fundació Joan Miró. On the way we spotted the outdoor swimming pool used for the Olympic games that took place here in 1992. The next stop was at the art museum for the spanish artist Joan Miró. Miró is among the most iconic of modern artists, using a language of symbols that reflects his personal vision, sense of freedom, and energy.



Our course tutors, Carmen and Isabel, came with us to the museum. They told us about a food festival 'Mercat de Mercats' that was taking place in the city. The 'Market of Markets' took place on the square in front of Barcelona Cathedral. It is a three day gastronomic festival for Barcelona to present the best of Catalan and Mediterranean food and cooking. We sampled lots of different tapas and I especially enjoyed the pudding!


Next, we wandered back to our accommodation and it was a quick change before heading out again. We met up with the teachers from Holy Cross for dinner and noticed that it was 20°C!
