ERASMUS-MEETING in Tortosa: Day 4
Today we had to get up early to catch the bus to the great city Barcelona which is approximately 200 km northern of Tortosa. At first we had the chance to see some buildings like the University and Les Arenes formally used as bull ring. Nowadays it is a shopping center. We also passed through Passeig de Gràcia and ended on the Plaza Catalunya. The Catalan team had organised a guided tour to get an overview of the history and the most important sights of this beautiful metropole. After a relaxing lunch break they showed us the masterpiece of Antoni Gaudí the Catholic Basilica La Sagrada Familia. This is one of the most visited monuments in Spain and it is still under construction. The plan is to finish it in 2026 which will coincide with the centenary of the architect's death. On our way back to Tortosa we stopped at the interactive and modern museum Cosmo Caixa. Tired but happy and full of impressions we arrived in Tortosa again and fell exhausted asleep. Thank you for organising this wonderful day!
