Venue & Practical Information

Venue

The venue of the conference is the Faculty of Philosophy of the Universitat de Barcelona. The address is Montalegre Street, 6, 08001, Barcelona. Here. The workshop will take place in three rooms, “Sala Gran”, “Aula 402” and “Seminari de Filosofia”, all located in the 4th floor.

How to get to the venue
  • By taxi. Barcelonian taxis are black and yellow. The trip from the airport should cost 30-35 Euro plus a minor charge per bag. Give the driver the following address:  C/ Montalegre 6-8.
  • By bus. The “Aerobus” runs between the Barcelona Airport and Catalunya Square (“Pl. Catalunya”). It costs  5.90 Euros (the ticket can only be bought on the bus) 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, you can get off at the Pl. Catalunya (the fourth stop). The Department is then within a five 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 free 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 Catalunya in Line 1 and Line 3, Universitat in Line 1 and Line 2 and Liceu in Line 3.
