If you are now in Barcelona or visiting within the next couple of days until the 6th February, you can enjoy all kinds of interesting cultural and musical shows and events – all at large discounts.
This new initiative by the Barcelona Town Council, called Set de Cultura, or Barcelona Opportunity Week, was created especially with the objective of offering special deals in many different establishments as a way of advertising them to more prospects.
Special discounts can be obtained at cultural events, musical entertainment and shows, top hotels and restaurants, like the Hisop and Restaurant Lluçanes, and shopping at eleven municipal markets – in many instances for a 50% discount. As for buying bouquets of flowers, 35 florists are participating this week as well, at a half discounted price.
Each establishment participating in the Opportunity Week will also be donating part of the proceeds from the special offers to a charity of their choice, so you will also be supporting good causes.
The Set De Cultural week also coincides with the International BCNegra (black novel) Conference being held in Barcelona, which will feature writers from all five continents. All talks and presentations of this gathering are open to the general public.
The most popular tourist products of Barcelona will also be available at attractive discounts, from 5% to 25% off, which include the Barcelona Bus Turístic, Barcelona Card, Barcelona Walking Tours Gòtic, Casa Batlló, CosmoCaixa – Science Museum and the Museu del Modernisme.
On the 1st February most of the cinemas of Barcelona are offering a 2×1 ticket discount for all films, except those by Warner.
As far as music goes, all the best venues, including the Sala Razzmatazz, Apolo and many others are participating in the 2×1 entrance discount offer.
Most of the major museums in the city can also be visited at discounted entrance tickets, including MNAC, la Pedrera, the Fundació Miró, and the Picasso Museum.
Plays and shows at the city’s public theatres, like the TNC and the Mercat de les Flors are on the Barcelona Culture Week program for reduced rates. Tours of the Auditori, Palau de la Música and the Gran Teatre del Liceu offer discounted admission prices as well.
Other notable venues which can be visited at special rates or offering discounts on products, are the Egyptian Museum, the Botanic Garden, the Fundació Tàpies and the Maritime Museum.
