Thanks for saying thanks, Susanna. It has listings for Sitges and Tarragona too. Some free language classes. I could do with some of those. :-)

This website is really useful. I should read it more often myself. For example, I didn't know that the Chocolate Museum had a daily activity for kids. Maybe I should go...I mean, maybe I should sign up my son.. and keep him company. He might be lonely. Just him and all that lovely, luscious, creamy chocolate! :-)

I went to the Chocolate Museum and all it is is really just a store. Not impressed.

Well at least they have chocolate statues which are kind of cool. They also try to explain the history of chocolate in Spain, how it is made etc. I don't know what else one could do with chocolate as a theme...

I guess it all depends on your expectations. I did not expect much about the Chocolate Museum so I did not plan on going there. However, I got a free tour a few months ago, I went and I was pleasantly surprised. As Catherine says above I can't really figure what else one could do with chocolate as a theme, and I find some of the chocolate statues truly amazing. Its not 'just a store' in my opinion.

Gigis_mum: I believe Gigi is too old for the kids activities, at least when I went the kids there were 4-5-6 years old. They seemed to be very happy making chocolate mess indeed :-))

hee hee hee. I agree with you, Belsaita. Gigi may be too old but no one can blame his mum for finding excuses to have a chocolate day! :-)

I love chocolate statues too. One of my favourite chocolatiers in Paris, Gregory Renard, is famous for his chocolate sculpture. In his shop window, there are always Eiffel Towers of various sizes! Somebody should make one of the Sagrada Familia... Torre Agbar would be much easier 'tho.

A 50 Kg chocolate Sagrada Familia was made for the Pope when he came to Barcelona to inuagurate the church. You can see it in the Chocolate Museum now, apparently the Pope only ate a tiny bit:
