The workshop venue
The Workshop will take place in the Sala Gran, Faculty of Philosophy, 4th floor (C/ Montalegre, 6, Barcelona 08001 ; see this map).
How to go from the airport to the Faculty of Philosophy
- By taxi. Barcelonian taxis are black and yellow. The trip from the airport should cost 30-35 Euro plus a minor charge per bag. Taxi drivers do not expect tips but, if you wish, a small tip (1 to 1.5 Euro) is appropriate. Give the driver the following address: Montalegre, 6.
- By bus. The “Aerobus” runs between the Barcelona Airport and Catalunya Square (“Pl. Catalunya”). It costs 5.90 Euros (the ticket can be bought on the bus or online) and the trip takes around 35 minutes. There is a bus every 6-15 minutes, depending on the time of the day. The bus (direction Airport – Pl. Catalunya) makes four stops and you can get off at Plaza Universitat, or Plaza Catalunya (the last stop). The Faculty of Philosophy is then within a ten minute walking distance.
- By train/subway. This is probably the less practical option (particularly if you are arriving in terminal 1, since to take the train you will first need to take a shuttle bus to terminal 2) but also the cheapest one. Once you take the train to the center, get off at Sants Estació or Passeig de Gracia. You will then need to change to the subway to get to the Faculty of Philosophy, the closest stations being Plaza Universitat, or Plaza Catalunya.
There are plenty of restaurants in the area. The map contains some information concerning this, including different vegetarian options.
Travel within Barcelona
If you are planning to use public transportation in Barcelona, you can for instance purchase (at any underground station in the city) a T-10 card for 10 Euro. This entitles any user (also, the T-10 is a multi personal ticket) to ten trips in the Barcelona metro or city buses
