For six consecutive Sundays, the side lanes on stretches of Diagonal and Pg de Gràcia will be traffic-free and dedicated to pedestrians, in these 'Sundays for Barcelona pedestrians'. The space will be filled with workshops, children's activities, book stands, sporting activities as well as guided walks that will take participants past the main architectural sights on each street. There will be a space dedicated to circus skills, traditional giants, new technologies, volleyball and live music. Plus a place to play futtoc, a new sport invented in Barcelona which combines table tennis and football.
The activities are being organised by the Ajuntament with the participation of several local entities, and the days have an experimental purpose; to gauge how fun and entertainment can fit into the normal life of the city and to see if Barcelona residents embrace the idea. If successful, then 'Sundays for Barcelona pedestrians' could become a permanent feature and be rolled out to other streets in the city.
The central lanes on both streets will function normally with traffic, and there will be no changes to public transport routes.
All activities are free.
