Tour description

El Raval has been since ancient times the neighborhood where newcomers settled, all those without citizenship status who could not shelter within the protection of the walls. Port and worker neighborhood, rogue and industrious, cozy and untamed, bright and unhealthy.

The Raval has always had its own vitality, rich and uncontrollable, in constant change. Headquarters of the Boquería and Sant Antoni markets, the Chinatown, the Santa Creu gothic hospital, the Reina Amalia prison, theaters and cabarets and the gypsy quarter. Filled in times of factories and soot, an anarchist nursery and a stronghold of the labor movement. The heart of Barcelona, a neighborhood without which this city could not be explained. Come and meet it from the hand of someone who has grown up in its streets.
