  • Be captivated by tales of one of the most influential periods in Barcelona's history
Discover the story of Barcelona in the years leading up to the Spanish Civil War on a 3-hour walking tour of El Raval. Learn about the 19th-century extension of the city beyond the medieval walls, and journey through the life of a city in turmoil.
What to Expect
Explore the story of Barcelona on a walking tour that covers the years leading up to the Spanish Civil War (1936), and discover a city in turmoil.

Traveling in small groups of no more than 15 people, you will learn about the idealistic urban planning projects of the 19th century, and the start of the organised workers’ movement of the early 20th century.

Discover the contrasts between the wealthy bourgeoisie and the under-privileged workers of the industrial age as you wander the streets of the old “Barrio Xino” (now “El Raval”).

Your guide will bring to life a period that saw the merging of the flourishing Modernisme (Art Nouveau) movement in architecture, and the working class slums.
