What better way to check out the bohemian culture of Barcelona than with a tour of El Raval? Led by an architect, see how the area embraces its multicultural roots by using 21st-century urban design ideas to fuse its heritage with state-of-the-art architecture in a bold and exciting transformation.

Your local guide, an architect, has equal knowledge and adoration of the beloved district—El Raval. Hear how the neighborhood's location by the port has helped welcomed scores of immigrants from across the globe and observe the resulting vibrancy and diversity.

El Raval’s past stems from working-class communities and the associated social problems; explore its darker side and the still-evident red light district. You learn how the deteriorated neighborhood spawned a successful artistic scene—as is often the case—and now several museums stand as testament to the area's transformation to a flourishing component of local culture.

Today, see how innovative urban planning is helping thrust the community into the 21st century as bold architecture blends with older relics of El Raval's colorful past. Perhaps this is best exemplified by Fabrica Moritz—a renovated gastronomic space that was once a brewery—where you can sip a drink with your guide and digest all you have seen.
