JAZZ FESTIVAL, PURE VIEW, and THE UNFORGIVEN
The title sounds a little bit confusing, we know, but that is because it is a combination of Jazz, Chinese art exhibition and a western with Burt Lancaster. All happening in Barcelona this week!
Don´t forget it is a bank holiday tomorrow, which gives you one additional day to enjoy Barcelona!
