The city

Terrassa is a city near Barcelona (28km distance). It is the fourth city in Catalonia with respect to its population (about 200k inhabitants).

Situation of Terrassa
The area where Terrassa stands has been inhabited since prehistory, but the city itself originated as the Roman town of Egara. We still can find Middle Ages remains, such as the rare Visigothic-Romanesque churches of La Seu d'Egara or the Castle of Vallparadís. But the great growth of the city came with the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry. The expansion of that industry at the end of the XIXth century and first years of the XXth century brought Modernism to the city. There are still several examples of fine modernist buildings. Among them, the building of the Escola Industrial is the best known building of the Campus that the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya has in the city.

The Modernist building of the Escola Industrial of Terrassa
We want participants to discover the hidden treasures of Terrassa: from pre-romanesque churches to innovative Modernist buildings

Masia Freixa, Sant Llorenç del Munt, Esglésies de Sant Pere and MNACTEC


ACCOMMODATION BOOKING

The city offers accommodation for different budgets. We have special prices for the participants to be accomodated at the Hotel Don Càndido. DETAILS about the offer soon.

Although Terrassa is well communicated with Barcelona (e.g. FGC trains every 12 min. during rush hour, about 40min trip to Barcelona city center), the idea is to accommodate participants locally. It is possible to commute every day, but we want to keep the nice discussion atmosphere that we enjoyed in previous editions of the workshop. For this matter, the organizing committee is working on an accommodation offer that provides this leisure/work environment for all the participants.
