An academic department at Rydal Penrhos will be heading to one of the most culturally rich cities in the world for a special trip.
The school’s Modern Foreign Languages department have arranged what promises to be an unforgettable visit to Barcelona during Activity Week, which will see the contingent enjoy a host of different excursions from July 1-4.
Among the highlights of their trip to the continent promises to be their visit to the Picasso Museum, which is a unique place discover the legendary artist's early works and his relationship to the city he loved so much.
Another exciting part of the trip is sure to be the excursion to Park Güell, which is one of the most stunning areas of Barcelona and will also include a guided tour of the prominent landmarks situated around the area.
The group will also be taking in the city’s picturesque marina during their stay, and there is already a sense of great excitement regarding their trip to the iconic Sagrada Família, a large unfinished Roman Catholic church designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
His work on the building is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the church and proclaimed it a minor basilica in November 2010.
This trip follows on from the department’s similar Activity Week schedule last year, which saw them travel to Paris, France.
Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “This is going to be a very worthwhile and memorable experience for everyone making the trip to Barcelona, and I would like to thank Modern Foreign Languages department head Susan Livingstone and her team for arranging the visit as part of our incredible Activity Week programme across all areas of life here at Rydal Penrhos.”
