About the tour

The Poblenou District in Barcelona is the neighbourhood that has been most dramatically transformed in the last 200 years. Being a very humble area in the past where fishermen and factory workers used to live it has partially turned into a high-tech part of the city. Here very modern skyscrapers co-live with low and working-class but beautiful buildings. And young people from all over the world co-work and live side by side with people that been here for generations. Now also called the 22@ District Poblenou is a fantastic “barrio” where innovation, creativity, design, technology but also tradition are the engine that has replaced the old factories. Come with me and discover this trendy neighbourhood and let me know whether you are more on the side of tradition or innovation…or maybe both…
