Tour description

Every city has that place, that space, where it turns invisible everything that bothers it and disturbs it.

This is the case of Raval, a neighborhood that since its inception has a history of marginalization and exclusion.

But like everything that wants to be silenced and hidden, the Raval shouts, shouts in favor of integration and art.

I invite you to discover the stories, legends, myths and iconic places of one of the richest neighborhoods in the world in culture and diversity

In the end I was only one on the tour so I was pleasantly surprised when my guide, whose name was Roberto (not 100% sure) offered me that we do the tour anyway. He was professional and gave a lot of information about the other side of Barcelona, the quarter named Raval. If anyone wants to see the other side, I would recommend doing it with the guide.

Roberto was a great guide. His storytelling was amazing and essential to unstigmatize the Raval. Definitly going back and recommend the tour!
