ADDITIONAL CERAMIC CIRCUITS IN BARCELONA
The organization encourages participants of the IAC Congress to remain in Barcelona during the weekend after the conference in order to have the opportunity to visit additional places and special exhibitions of ceramic interest that the city will offer during these days, and that you may not have time to visit during the days of the conference.
Of course, the monuments and ceramic places of interest included in the visits during the afternoons and evenings of the Congress can also be visited during the weekend if someone did not have the chance because they were already full. These free visits are not guided by the organization. Many of the offers in this section are not included in the daily program of the Congress.
