Tour description

This will be a short tour of different architectural spaces that have an important character in the city.

We will begin our tour on Paseo de Gracia visiting the outskirts of the houses made by Gaudí , the Antonio Tapies museum , a building made by Toyo Ito and the Generali building .
(We will not enter these buildings only on the outside)

From here, we will go to the Santa Caterina market designed by the architects Eric Miralles and Carmen Pinos. A characteristic market for its formal compositions and its colored roof. In this building you can tour its interior and you can taste something to snack or drink.

Then we will enter the Born to visit the CCM Center for Culture and Memory. Here you will get to know the old framework of the city and how this building was designed by Josep Fontserè in iron. In its current intervention, the building dialogues with the ruins. In this building you can tour its interior.

Later we will go through La Cascada Monumental in La Citadella park , to then start our way towards El Deposito de las Aguas , a mysterious and silent library, which well manages to demonstrate the power of scale, shadows and lights. In this building you can tour its interior.

Then we will go outside the Deposit building to close and give advice on other possible routes and buildings to visit.

I hope we will see each other soon to continue discovering spaces in the city.
