Barcelona is one of Spain’s most attractive and cosmopolitan cities. Few cities can boast such a perfect symbiosis between tradition and modernity, art and history, culture and life.
A visit to Barcelona is always an intense and lively sensual experience. Walking through the city you will feel invited to discover surprising modernist buildings, wonderful museums and modern art foundations, imposing gothic churches, designer bars, breath-taking perspectives…
- Gaudi’s genial works will leave you speechless: the Güell park, the cathedral of the Sagrada Familia, the curious building of La Pedrera…
- With the sun blazing down, the golden beaches and clear blue sea will be impossible to resist!
- ´Las Ramblas´, barcelona’s vibrant and lively promenade popular with tourists and locals alike.
- Museo Picasso, Fundación Miró, Museo del Modernismo, Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña…
- You will have never seen a region with so many “fiestas” and such strongly rooted traditions. The world-famous nightlife will be hard to forget, and the folklore of Catalonia, with its deep Mediterranean roots, will surprise you by its variety and its originality.
Come to our school to share the Catalonians’ way of life. Academia Contacto: the best for you.
Our partner school in Barcelona (Linguabarcelona) is located in a stunning 19th Century house on a charming “Pasaje” (without traffic so you can even hear the birds sing) in the heart of the city. Being a mere five minute walk from Plaza Catalunya the school is never more than a stone’s throw from every amazing attraction of this beautiful city, such as Gaudí´s Casa Battló, one of the most important monuments of European modernism. Whilst being a centre of excellence, the school possesses an atmosphere typical of the remarkable city it is engulfed in. You will meet people from all over the world in remarkable settings, say under the palm tree in our gorgeous garden while having a coffee, or in our open-air terrace during Monday´s welcome drinks of Sangria.
Accredited by the Cervantes Institute, the school consists of twelve spacious, vibrant and modern classrooms, each fitted with interactive technology, air conditioning and heating. Other services include a terrace, wireless Internet access, coffee and tea facilities, a library, computers, relaxing sofas, disabled access, and dedication from everyone involved.
