Today at the Castle
The exhibition "The Pedagogical Revolution of Ferrer i Guàrdia" exposes the aims, the principles, the impact and the extend of the great work of Ferrer i Guàrdia: the Modern School, whose pedagogical model meant a real pedagogical revolution in a convulsive social context with a precarious educational system. The Modern School was based on the principles of a rational, scientific and humanitarian education, it had a universal and a secular nature, and aimed at the construction of a city of free people, promoting equality between men and women, avoiding prejudices and the existence of oppressors and oppressed.
Many paths, but only one exit. A secret hidden in the tower. “Laberint” (“Labyrinth”) is a sea of coloured walls full of obstacles that captivate the bravest participants with visual puzzles and doors that require skill to open. Getting lost in this large-format installation will be a marvellous adventure.
Next Thursday, March 15th, the dungeons of the Castle are going to be opened to the public again. The restoration carried out at the site has revealed hundreds of graffiti made by the prisoners who have stayed at the dungeons over the years. Calendars, drawings, proclamations and all kinds of writings have come to light and will be on show when visiting this area. The dungeons can only be accessed with a guided tour, available at 11am from Monday to Sunday and also at 4pm on weekends and holidays at a price of €5 (price of the guided tour, entry not included).
