Poblenou Cemetery Route
The Poblenou Cemetery Route is a journey to nineteenth-century Barcelona through the different pantheons and the characters of the most interesting, historical and cultural burials.

Route of the Fossar de la Pedrera of the Montjuïc Cemetery
The Ruta del Fossar is a memorial space with the mortal remains of the victims of Franco's repression and bombing, as well as a good number of people who were shot dead in Barcelona during the post-war period. It was reopened in 1985 as an architectural ensemble of great historical interest, where, among other monuments, are the tomb of President Lluís Companys.

The project was inspired by experiences of teaching reforms and brought a debate to the table that is still very much in existence today.
