Overview of the tour in Barcelona

The Raval tour is undoubtedly the best way to discover the alternative and bohemian side of the city of Barcelona. An original route, outside the traditional tourist itineraries, will allow you to get in touch with the most authentic part of the city of Barcelona and discover the dark past of this neighborhood.

We will cover, without censorship, topics such as the Spanish Civil War, anarchism, prostitution, drug trafficking and consumption, street art, mass tourism, and much more. Starting from Las Ramblas we will visit the neighborhood to observe its hidden corners, secret treasures, and contradictions that characterize this "space on the edge".

A journey through time from the Raval of the agricultural past to the present day, passing from the great monasteries of the Middle Ages to the urbanization during the Industrial Revolution, without forgetting the golden age of the Barrio Chino with its dodgy bars and brothels famous in all of Europe.

We will see the effects of gentrification, the struggles of neighborhood committees, the coolest contemporary art museums in the city, and much more to discover the most authentic and exciting Barcelona.
