A real experience should always involve all the senses


Last Friday, all our Y7 students enjoyed a trip to the most ancient inhabited part in Barcelona: the Montjuïc area.

The same way Rome has its seven hills, Barcelona stretches between Collserola and Montjuïc and they both have their own history and must-sees.

One of those unmissable places is the MAC (Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya – Archaeological Museum of Catalonia) which contains artefacts dating back to prehistory and covering all the historical periods until the advent of modernity. Our students attended a guided museum-tour on prehistory (focusing on human rests and prehistorical life). Thus, the sociales group was able to display their knowledge and the Spanish culture group could practice their listening skills.

When they finished they walked apace to the Greek Theatre where they were confronted with the entire structure of an empty Greek theatre to play in. Later, they climbed to the Olympic stadium where they were charmed by the Barcelona ’92 Olympic spirit. And last but not least, they enjoyed the views over Barcelona at the MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya – Art National Museum of Catalonia) where they joined the celebrations of an engaging couple to the sound of a romantic guitar.

All in all, an unparalleled winter sunny morning!
