About the tour

El Raval is a unique neighborhood in Barcelona. A separate universe, almost a city within the city. Since the Middle Ages remote and mysterious area, where business considered impure such as butchers and barbers were installed, the Raval remains a poor, rebellious, controversial neighborhood.

In this area, the ancient history of Barcelona coexists (the old Hospital de Sant Pau was built here) with the modern, multicultural and alternative city of graffiti and urban art, skaters and nightlife.

In this tour we will discover together the most emblematic corners, the charms and the social problems of the most "special" neighborhood of Barcelona.
