Today the students got their first opportunity to sleep in after a busy first week in Barcelona! After getting a late start, we visited Palo Alto Market, a market that only takes place once a month in Barcelona. There the students enjoyed food, shopping, and music.
We later spent the afternoon relaxing on Barcelona’s beaches. It was a nice opportunity to rest and soak up the sun!
Finally, we took the group to see La Sagrada Familia, the world renowned basílica designed by Antoní Gaudí. Did you know that the church has been under construction for more than 130 years? It is not expected to be finished until 2026 and it is already quite the masterpiece!
We are looking forward to a special trip to Tossa de Mar tomorrow. Tossa de Mar is part of Spain’s Costa Brava, which stretches between Barcelona and the French border. We can’t wait to share this beautiful town with the students. Check back tomorrow for pictures and stories of our day trip.
