Torre de Collserola
Following its inaugural success in 2010, 48H Open House BCN will once again take place in October, allowing locals to view over 150 buildings throughout the ten boroughs of Barcelona; some which have never been accessible to the public before.
With a range of architecture with different sizes, shapes and styles, 48H Open House BCN is encouraging people to understand the true beauty and value of urban architecture. This unique event also allows each citizen to create their own itinerary to discover the architecture that defines Barcelona's past, present and future. Many architects, along with planners and guides, will be present in order to answer any questions and explain the significance of the buildings.
Highlights this year include the iconic Torre de Collserola, the newly renovated Hotel España, a guided tour of the Montjuic cemetery and a chance to visit one of Barcelona's most hidden palaces, Palau Moxó. There are also a range of activities that locals can participate in such as an architecture and dance workshop at the Palau Baró de Quadras (Casa Asia) or an experience at the dining room of Ernesto Meda (Casa de les Punxes) which interconnects food with architecture.
