The Symposium will be held at the Sala de Graus of the Facultat de Lletres of the Universitat de Girona. The Sala de Graus is located in the cloister of this Faculty. The access to the Facultat de Lletres is easy because it is situated in the old town of Girona. Once in Girona, you can get to the symposium by taxi or bus (TMG) or, given the size of the city, on foot. It should be mentioned that the old town is located on a promontory in the old part of the city, and it is possible to reach the Facultat the Lletres by using bus line 7. This line also connects the old town with the railway station. For more information www.girona.cat
