Why a Raval tour is so worthwhile

Raval is a bit away from tourism. This multicultural district has undergone a significant transformation: from the "don't go there" district of the 1980s to today's trendy district. If you've been to the Gothic Quarter before, you'll immediately notice the difference, it's bright in the Raval.

The guides will draw your attention to interesting details in the Raval: on every corner you will find various forms of street art, be it graffiti or sculptures made of soda cans glued to the houses. The famous but unknown artist Banksy has also beautified dreary walls in Barcelona.

It's the mix of must-see and still-present authenticity in the Raval that's why you should see this part of town.
