RAVAL TOUR AND TAPAS

Let’s roam the Raval together! Or better yet, ravalejar it - a term adopted by locals to describe hanging out in this vibrant, diverse and lively district. The Raval is Barcelona's most ethnically diverse neighborhood, and a place where you'll find some of the best art museums in the city, eclectic shops and bars, urban gardens, street art, the most popular skateboarding square in the city, and so much more. The tour ends at Mamdou's restaurant for some delicious Senegalese tapas!!

BARÇA WOMEN SOCCER MATCH

(DE)COLONIAL BARCELONA

Ruta de Autor guides lead students through a Monopoly-esque game around Old Town to learn about how the city’s history is inseparable from that of the Americas and colonialism. The game is meant to take a look at Barcelona’s history from a critical, decolonized lens in recognition of the wealth with which the former colonies provided Barcelona and Spain.

COOKING CLASS

BARCELONA GOTHIC AREA TOUR

The city of Barcelona is a very popular destination among international students for its happy combination of cultural richness and leisure options. Being a city founded by the Romans, we offer our students the opportunity to learn about its ancient cultural roots through a walking tour of its oldest part, "el barrio gótico". But we also introduce them to perspectives unlike the traditional, including LGBTQ+ and Decolonized Barcelona tours.  During these visits they discover and understand more about a city most of them will end up calling "my second home".
