RAVAL ALIVE PRIVATE TOUR
A trip to the crazy and alternative side of Barcelona.
Graffiti, skate parks and multicultural diversity define the most alternative area of Barcelona, the Raval neighbourhood. Incredible street art works, small cultural centers, music, poetry, theaters and much more. During this tour you will understand the controversial history of the district, that was once one of the most densely populated industrial urban areas in Europe, home of famous night scene of Barrio Chino, Barcelona’s chinatown, with its provocative cafes, smoky dancing halls and red light pleasures for all social classes.
You will also explore the world-famous visual graffiti from Keith Haring, Konair, Invader, Xupet Negre and many other artists from all over the world that have filled every corner of the Raval with underground talent, turning the place into an open, ever-changing, air museum.
Still regarded as a complicated and turbulent area, today the Raval is still a unique mix of cultural avant-garde, poor and decaying houses, ancient absinthe bars and even old medieval churches, that makes it a unique place that you will never forget and teaches us the real history of Barcelona, as seen by the less fortunate inhabitants.
