More about Guillermo Tell

See The Grand Theatre of the...

by SusanneBeck

See The Grand Theatre of the Liceu (El Gran Teatre del Liceu)
The theatre was built in the mid 19th century and over the years there has been two fires and a bombing. The first fire was in 1861. For the restoration of the Liceu, the architect Josep Oriol Mestres requested the collaboration of the finest realist painters of 19th- Century Barcelona: Martí Alsina, Lluís Rigalt and Antoni Caba. Then, on 7 November 1893, during a performance of the opera William Tell , the anarchist Santiago Salvador Franch threw a bomb into the audience, killing 22 people. Performances were resumed in January 1894. On 31 January 1994, sparks produced by welders working on the stage caused the theatre's second fire, which burned down the stage, consumed the stalls and destroyed the roof of the building.
El Gran Teatre del Liceu se construyó en Barcelona en el año 1844. Durante los años se produjeron en el teatro dos incendios y un atentado; el primer incendio, el año 1861. Para proceder a la restauración del Liceu el arquitecto Josep Oriol Mestres solicitó la colaboración de los mejores pintores realistas del siglo XIX barcelonés: Martí Alsina y Rigalt i Caba. Entonces, el 7 de noviembre de 1893, durante la representación de la ópera Guillermo Tell estalló una bomba. En enero de 1894 se reanudaron las representaciones. El 31 de enero de 1994, debido a las chispas que se produjeron durante las reparaciones que efectuaban unos soldadores en el escenario, se originó el segundo incendio que ha sufrido el teatro. El fuego quemó el escenario, pasó al patio de butacas y causó el hundimiento del techo del edificio, que fue declarado siniestro total.

Museums and shops open on 6 and 8 of december?

by jacquisuiza

I will be in Barcelona from 4 to 12 december for a spanish course.
The school wrote me that there will be no lessons on 6 and 8 of december.
Día de la constitución and Inmaculada concepción. I don’t mind because the course is only an excuse to spend some time in Spain.
Are shops and museums open these days? What are nice day trips to do on these days. I have been to Barcelona several times and know a lot of the city’s attractions and have also been to Montserrat.

You could do a daytrip to Sitges. It is a nice seaside town not far from Barcelona.

There are direct trains to that town from Barcelona.

Otherwise you can visit Girona.

I'd suggest the Dali Museum in Figueres if you haven't been there yet - about 1.5 hours away by train, near the French border. Fascinating.

Good ideas, thank you. Figueres sounds good and also Girona and Tarragona. I remember a small village called Cadaqués that I visited more than 30 years ago. Perhaps this would also be a nice day trip, if there are busses at that time of the year.

Girona and Figueres are on the same train line and in the same direction. However, I would say it would be somewhat rushed to do both in one day. Let us say you arrive in Girona when everything starts opening up (9:00am?) and stay for about 3-4 hours. Then it will take you about one hour to get to Figueres. That will leave you 3-4 hours to see the Dali Museum (open until 18:00). You cannot do it in reverse (Figueres first) as it gets dark quite early at that time of year (the museum can be seen when dark outside :)).
If possible, take 1.5 days to do it, with an overnight in either Figueres or Girona. If not possible, and you don't plan to return to the area, I would recommend doing it in one day - even if rushed.
BTW, I did it in one day, but it was in March and I had a car.
Please note that during the winter, the Dali Museum is closed on Mondays, except for holidays. Since Monday, December 6th, is a holiday, it should be open, but doublecheck if planning to go on that day.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

barceloneta/port vell

by call_me_rhia

It's the Barceloneta area and the old port... nothing truly old remains, except the name, but it's a pleasant area to stroll about: there's plenty of bars and restaurants, a long sandy beach, the olympic city and a quite scenic marina. Walking along the sea, enjoying the tranquillity of a late october afternoon away from the city centre crowds. The peace, I heard, ends at nightfall, since it's a hang-out night area

Catalan Dialect

by luke850

If you don't know any spanish, then this doesn't really apply to you. However, if you speak a little spanish, don't think that you'll be able to use it here! In Barcelona the people speak a dialect called catalan, which is basically a regional spanish dialect. If you have learned a little spanish, the catalnans will really confuse you!

BARCELONA OLYMPIC GAMES - Olympic Square

by Azhut

This is the landscape you can have after enter the olympic square. The Olympic "circuit" consists of the Olympic Stadium, the Palace Sport The Palau Sant Jordi and the public swimming-pool, indoor and outdoor called Piscines Bernat Martoll.

Secret Spot to Watch the Harbor

by jhoolko

This is a secret you won't find in any guidebooks, but its such a nice place to sit and watch the boats and seagulls go by in the harbor. Go into the Maremagnum mall (yes the mall). Find Desigual on the directory, and head inside. There is a staircase inside. Go up it. There is another staircase. Go up that one too. On the very top level of the store, you won't find any clothes, only a giant pit of oversized pillows and huge windows that look out onto the port. Hop into the pillows (they might be a little gross, but come on, they're pillows you've got to jump on them) and relax while you watch the boats silently load up and float away.
You can also get a similar view (but no pillows!) in the H&M dressing room in the same mall.
