Social program“On Tuesday, after lunch, we are having some social activities. First a guided tour to Barcelona’s downtown (The gothic quartier) and the Holly Family Temple. We will move by bus provided by the conference organization. Bus will bring back us to the gala dinner restaurant, which will take place in Hotel AC Marriot, Passeig del Taulat 278, 08019 – Barcelona, again very close to the conference area (7 min walking from the venue, and also close to the Hotel Barcelona Princess).
Regarding the tour, specially the visit to the Holly Family Temple, some rules must be followed: “At the entrance, visitors will have their bags, rucksacks, luggage, professional photography and video equipment and personal items checked. If any dangerous items are found, they may be confiscated and returned when the visitor leaves the premises or handed over to security or law enforcement, depending on the circumstances, or the visitor may be denied access to the Temple and/or Gaudí House Museum. Visitors may not enter with narcotics or beverages from outside the grounds”. “Out of respect for other visitors and to preserve the contemplative setting appropriate of a church, visitors are asked not to raise their voices. Visitors must behave politely throughout their time on the premises, refraining from forming crowds or running while on the grounds. Any sort of protest is strictly prohibited anywhere on the Basilica grounds. No smoking or eating is allowed on the premises. Drinking is only allowed outside the building”; “For safety, no hats are allowed inside the nave or the museum except for religious, health or belief-related reasons. Visitors may not enter barefoot. As it is a Catholic church, visitors must dress appropriately, following these restrictions: No see-through clothing. Trousers and skirts must come down to at least mid-thigh. Visitors may not enter in swimwear. Visitors will not be allowed to enter wearing special clothing to celebrate any sort of festivities, nor with any decorations designed to distract or draw attention for artistic, religious, promotional or any other purposes” Extracted from: https://sagradafamilia.org/en/rules-and-regulations”
