This sports society "Club Nàutic Vilassar de Mar" (CNVM) was established in 1960, presenting its Statutes during this season. The last major remodeling of its facilities was in 1965 with the project of the architect Ignasi Mas.
This summer, the Club has scheduled a series of workshops for both children and adults. All these courses are normally commanded by instructors who have been or are sailors from the Náutico. Experienced people who can bring all their knowledge of the world of sailing to the students. As every year, apart from sailing, the Club launches different activities aimed at all members, especially the little ones.
Starting this year, the Club makes a proposal for a summer colony for the smallest members. The objectives of this summer colony are to learn to play and live together while having fun in the Club's facilities.
Summer after summer the Club launches a series of activities and social parties where the great harmony and involvement that all members have with the club is manifested. All kinds of events are organized for adults and children. From the children's party to the "Tastet" where the oldest and not so long-lived members demonstrate their art in the kitchen. Undoubtedly, the "Tastet" is one of the benchmark social events and the one in which the Club members put the most effort.
We do not forget either the great Social Verbena that takes place at the end of August in which all the members gather to begin to say goodbye to the summer. To consult the calendar of all these events, you can access the social calendar section or consult the activities booklet that was sent to the homes of all members at the beginning of June.
As every year on Wednesdays in summer from 10pm, a film is shown on the deck of the boat. His whole life has been one of the most successful activities of the Club. So be it again!
Within the social area, Dominoes and cards have an important weight. They are one of the activities that bring together the most people. The large number of participants who sign up allows us to see on several occasions one of the most beautiful images of the club, which is the entire terrace full of domino players. Without any doubt it is one of the activities that creates the most expectation. Going down to the boats around 8 o'clock in the afternoon when the amateur fishermen return from the squid or the "fluixa" is always fun to see who has fished the most or in many cases to see who says they have fished the most. For this year the fishermen's dinner is scheduled on September 7, where the "Llop de Mar 2007" will also be delivered.
Museo Picaso (Picasso Museum) - Located in the Palau Aguilar. Barcelona houses the most important collection of Picasso´s early works from his student years (1895-1904). Also exhibited are some of his works from 1917, including his pieces from the collaboration with Diaghilev´s Russian Ballet and the "Las Meninas" series inspired by Velazquez´s painting.
Reales Atarazanas, Museo Marítimo (Naval Museum) - This shipyard, which began life at the time of the greatest commercial and military expansion of Catalonia and Aragón throughout the Mediterranean, in 14C, is, according to the specialists Hernández Cros, G. Mora and X. Pouplana, following on from Cirici Pellicer, "the most complete example of a medieval shipyard which is still preserved in our time". This is despite the fact that its construction lasted until 18C, because it never lost the original building style, which was the most adequate for its purpose. The whole comprises three 17C plants, in the direction of the Rambla, and another eight longer ones behind. Through the door of the first of these, located in a tower, one enters the premises. The plants, with pointed arches, and covered by a sloping roof, are very simple but very beautiful. This was where the boats that ploughed the Mediterranean were built, and some of them from mid 18C onwards were used for trading with South America.
Parlamento De Cataluña Y Museo De Arte Moderno - In what had been the arsenal of the fortress the Royal Palace was established at the end of 19Cm after the renovation carried out by Pere Falqués, and in 1900 the headquarters of the Fine Arts Museum was installed there. In 1932 the main part of the building was the seat of the Catalonian Parliament, which functioned during the years of the Second Republic. In 1939 it was used as barracks, and was taken over once more in 1945 as a Museum of Modern Art and with the implementation of the present democracy the Parliament of the Autonomous Community returned to its original home.
Palau De La Musica Catalana - This palace was constructed in 1908 as headquarters and auditorium for the Orfeo Catalan (Choir) by the architect, LLuis Domènech i Montaner, as part of the spirit of revitalisation of Catalonian culture, known as the Renaixenca, and in keeping with the modernist style. It is known commonly as "el Palau" and considered the "temple of Catalonian music". It is a bare brick building with mosaic facings, with a sculptural group, representing catalonian song at the angle of the facade, the work of the sculptor Blay. The interior is typical of Catalonian Modernisme, with colourful materials, both in the ceramics and in the coloured windows, as well as the floral themes. Of particular merit is the bust in relief, the work of Esebi Arnau and the sculpture group, which is also evocative of Catalonian song, at one side of the stage, the work of Pau Gargallo. The Palau has been made a World Heritage Site. Pop: Many leading rock and pop artist can be seen at the Palau Sant Jordi and the Olympic Stadium, both at the Olimpic City.
During the summer months the Grec Festival takes place in the Theatre Grec which is a replica of a Greek amphitheatre set into the Montjuic mountainside. Many wonderful theatre shows can be seen throughout the year at the following venues, the old hall of the Mercat de les Flors, Teatre Poliorama, Teatre Romea, Teatre Romea, Teatre Tivoli, Teatre Lliure.
The cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, a major economic, cultural, and financial centre in southwestern Europe
Although Barcelona is known as one of Europe’s most expensive cities, one needn’t go broke visiting this fabulous coastal city. First off, instead of staying at a large hotel or a chain, look into booking a room at a smaller hotel, sometimes called a pension, or hostal (not to be confused with a “youth hostel” which can really be bare bones). Oftentimes smaller hotels will include breakfast in the total cost. This is a surefire way to save some euros.
Plus it’s a nice convenience walking down to the breakfast room in the morning, as opposed to having to bundle up and trudge out looking for a decent restaurant. This saves time, too, as you’ll no doubt have many museums (a must-see is the Picasso Museum! And admission is free on Sundays) and other sights on your agenda to visit. Another bonus to a bed-and-breakfast is that they often have a fruit basket on the buffet table. Be sure to pick up a piece and toss it in your bag for later. It will come in mighty handy, say, at 11:30 a.m., when the hunger pangs kick in and you’re starving and ready to stop at the nearest restaurant, no matter how dive-y, or expensive it looks just because your hunger is doing you in.
No, better, to stave off the hunger with a freebie from your B&B so you can spend an extra minute or two to find the restaurant you really wanted which was recommended in a travel article as having great food.
And imagine how even happier you’ll be when you discover that said cute small restaurant with an artsy vibe (Anima, located on Carrer dels Angels in the re-gentrified Raval district) is having a special lunch-time menu of an entrée, dessert, beverage and coffee or tea, all for only 10 euros! And by the way, tipping is not usually done in Barcelona, but it is common courtesy to round up your bill to the nearest euro. Bon appetite, or as they say in Spain ¡Buen apetito!
