Walking tour ciutadella barceloneta june 2010
Parc de la Ciutadella and la Barceloneta: Two sides to a story
Join us for the third of our Sunday strolls. This time we combine two areas of the city with an intrinsically interconnected history. Our native English guide will detail the park’s plighted past and the role it played in putting Barcelona on the map and contributing to the outbreak of the modernisme movement.
The tour will then take in the Barceloneta barrio, shedding light on its emergence as the home of the city’s fisherfolk, pondering its baroque blemishes and finishing at a suitable bar for a Sunday seafood snack.
Meeting time and place: 11.30am on Sunday 20th June, main entrance to the Parc de la Ciutadella at the junction of Passeig de Lluís Companys with Passeig de Pujades
