On April 23, the day of Sant Jordi, the Center Excursionista de Catalunya has organized an open day and free guided tours at its headquarters. Although hiking is not your thing (if it is, better), keep the following in mind:
The headquarters of this center is from the beginning of the s. XX and was reformed by, nothing more and nothing less, than Puig i Cadafalch. We can say that the building is a little-known architectural gem. But if that does not convince you, the Center Excursionista de Catalunya is located in the Temple of Augustus, and these open doors are the only opportunity to see the four columns since the access was closed due to the pandemic. Not yet? Well, there is more: in the guided tours you will be able to see all the art objects that they have exposed in their headquarters (artistic pieces that go from Romanesque virgins to modernist posters, a painting by Miró and historical photographs of Catalonia), which are normally only accessible for partners.
The event is free, but you have to book a place.
The visits will be made in groups of six.
