Brewery Tour and Sagrada Familia


View Barcelona 2017 on AnneO's travel map.

Today's leaders were Tanner and Jake. Tanner gave us the overview of the day and we boarded our bus to go to the Estrella brewery. It was interesting to see all the machinery used to make the beer, and everyone enjoyed the samples at the end.

The bus then brought us back to our apartments. Some students went out and some took advantage of the siesta time. Our next appointment for the day was the Sagrada Familia church, which is one of the places for which Barcelona is most known. It has been under construction since 1882 and isn't scheduled to be completed until 2026. It is really beautiful inside. It is supposed to look like a forest with the columns inside and the way the light shines in thought the stained glass windows. I definitely will have to come back to Barcelona after it is completed!

You can see videos by Tanner and Jake on our Facebook page. Tanner reviews the day's activities and Jake tells us what he likes best about Barcelona.
After our church tour, the students were free for the rest of the evening. I know some were going to find a labyrinth they read about in some of the materials provided by Barcelona SAE.

Adios,

Anne
