Wat je gaat doen

A walk into the Raval, with an objective gaze from within this constantly evolving neighborhood, vibrating heart of Barcelona vitality. The former Barrio Chino is the unrepentant soul of the city, in all its colorful and chaotic splendor, and its edgiest district. Contaminated by both its vicinity to the harbor and its concentrated urban development, the Raval is the clearest expression of the contradictions of Barcelona. We will explore the heritage of renowned brothels and visit picturesque taverns, havens for sailors, artists and intellectuals. We will see how the traditional anarchist-unionist ethic is nowadays consumed by gentrification and real estate speculation. Merrily decorated by its street art, the Raval will make us experience the cross-cultural fusion of Catalan identity with the complexity of the modern society. For those who want a more nuanced understanding of the current landscape of Barcelona, the splendor of its cosmopolitism and the depths of its contradictions - this tour is for you! Carrer Robadors, Street Art, Rambla del Raval, Marijuana, Prostitution, Narcopisos, Carrer Joaquim Costa, Memorial Juan Andrés Benitez, MACBA, CCCB, Enriqueta the Vampiress

Born in Bologna Italy, graduated in International Relations, with a journalism background, I've been into IT for the last years, developing Siri. But since 2016 I decided to be a tour guide. Since 2008 I live in Barcelona. I’ve meditated on it, I’ve absorbed it, in all of its contradictions, in all of its flavors and scents. I do travel a lot so I'd like to deliver everything you need to have your best experience in Barcelona, sharing its most authentic essence, tasting its charm but not omitting its vices and faults. I play music, so I can help with nightlife too!
