WFATE Fourth Biennial International Conference. Innovation in Teacher Education within a Global Context


The Conference City and venues

Barcelona has a marvelous cityscape and the city life is energetic and colourful. Basking on the sun-kissed shores of the Mediterranean, the Catalan capital is a city with its finger most firmly on the pulse: Barcelona has always embraced style, bold design and all things new.

From the mountains to the beach, wide tree-lined boulevards unravel into pretty parks with playgrounds and shady squares with tiny, happy bars, where an afternoon is never wasted. Exploring 2,000 years of history here’s a breeze: a port since Roman times, Barcelona has flamboyant art deco architecture; Gaudí’s fantastical façades beckon from every street corner, and the redeveloped beachfront boasts sleek modern buildings. Buzzing bars and restaurants in the Gothic Quarter and El Born ensure the city and her visitors lunch long and party late into the night. No wonder cava is the drink of choice –- this is a place with much to celebrate.
