COMING SOON! Cuisine and Culture in Barcelona

In September, students will be visiting Barcelona to experience Spanish culture and cuisine.

Twenty students in Years 9, 10 and 11 will spend four days visiting the city during the Barcelona La Mercè Festival, which has been held each year since 1902 in honour of the Patron Saint of Barcelona. The festival incorporates a week-long celebration of the best Spanish produce and traditional cuisine, combined with an exciting programme of cultural entertainment including live music, parades and street performances.

The trip will give students the opportunity to fully experience Spanish culture through visits to a variety of local restaurants and museums, alongside the chance to develop their language skills.
