som terrassa

presentation

Terrassa is one of the most important cities in Catalonia with a very rich history, culture and industry. You are all part of Terrassa, you will contribute to its future, and you should be very proud of it!

Soon, a large group of students from the Netherlands will come to Terrassa and they will visit the city with you. You will be the tour guides for the Dutch students in Terrassa!

Tour guides are responsible for helping people visit new places and, of course, they have an excellent knowledge about the points of interest of these places, but... do you really know Terrassa?

In this project you will become familiar with the historical centre of Terrassa, you will find out more about its cultural, industrial and modernist heritage and you will explore Vallparadís, the biggest urban park in Catalonia. All this will help you become a great tour guide. Let's start!
