Ready-to-Book Tour PERE IV

Urban renewal through art, culture and creativity

 

As part of a comprehensive overhaul, the former industrial axis in Barcelona's Poblenou neighbourhood is well on its way to becoming a new cultural hotspot and civic promenade. Walking along Carrer Pere IV allows insight into the city's probably most experimental neighborhood, where the legacy of the workers' movement lives on to this day in initiatives of collaborative and solidarity economy, and where, between derelict factories and contemporary avant-garde projects, innovative solutions for the city of the future are being tested and implemented.
