Join the fun!
One of the most important, and enjoyable, parts of going to a conference is getting to know the other partcipants. Whether it’s to network professionaly, make new friends, or, ideally, both, social events play an important part in making that happen! We invite you to join us for the following events.
Tuesday (12 Nov) and Wednesday (13 Nov)- Walking Tour
Those interested can join us for a walking tour of Barcelona! You should have enough time after the conference ends that day to drop off your bags before the tour begins. Remember to bring warm clothing, good walking shoes, and an umbrella, just in case it rains.
- Meeting Location and Time: meet in front of Casa Batlló at 19:00. Tour duration is 1.5 hrs.
- Cost: 5 EUR suggested donation each, plus any drinks or food at the bar where we end up.
Tour Description: We will visit the city center and Gothic quarter. The tour will start at the metro station Passeig de Gràcia, in front of Casa Batlló. From Passeig de Gracia (the boulevard with the modern-style houses by the architect Gaudí), we will walk down to the Gothic Quarter (the heart of Barcelona) to see Els Quatre Gats (the Café of the artists), the cathedral, the remains of the roman temple, the medieval king’s palace, Sant Felip Neri square, the Jewish quarter, Santa Maria del Pi Gothic church, among other monuments and historic corners, reaching the popular promenade La Rambla and arriving at Sant Antoni area, where we will finish the walk to enjoy a beer at a local brewery (Fàbrica Moritz).
Due to lots of interest, there will be two groups. You can find more information on groups here: Walking Tour Groups.
