Staff Retreat 2014


Each May, the staff at the CIEE Barcelona Study Center reserves a day for a staff retreat, a chance to have meetings and talk about our programs but also to do something fun as a team. This year we visited the Monastery of Sant Benet de Bages, a former Benedictine monastery about one hour from Barcelona. The Romanesque monastery was thoroughly restored at the beginning of the twentieth century by the Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch.

The area and several of the surrounding buildings are now used for a variety of activities. From organic farming, meeting spaces and the Alicia Foundation which uses scientific methods to research new ways to enjoy food.

The staff spent the morning in meetings, and then toured the monastery, had lunch and then a lecture on how each of our senses impacts the way we experience food.
