  • 48h Open House Barcelona

    48h Open House Barcelona

    This is the main architectural event in Barcelona, a weekend in October where over 200 buildings of every shape and size open their doors to the general public. It is an initiative of the 48h Open House Barcelona association, which began in London in 1992. From then on, the concept of an 'Open House' has been implemented around the world: New York, Dublin, Galway, Tel Aviv and, since 2010, Barcelona, have their own week dedicated to local architecture. 'Open House' offers the opportunity to understand and experience architecture in a unique way, through an architectonic experience.

    The program invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-constructed and designed space. In the last few years, this event in Barcelona has expanded to include cities and villages from the metropolitan area and the Maresme Coast, and on the roster of buildings to visit we will come across churches, schools, sports centers, apartment blocks, libraries and restaurants.

    • Literary trail through Gràcia
    Adapted Tour for visually impaired people.
    Meeting point: Fontana Metro station (corner of Gran de Gràcia and Carrer Astúries)

    Language: Catalan
    Places visited: Air-raid shelter 232 in the Plaça del Diamant.
    Last June, Barcelona was guest city at the Buenos Aires Book Fair. The literary trails devised for this event are the source of inspiration for this tour. We'll walk through the streets and squares where literary works were set or their authors lived or spent time. The Plaça del Diamant is one of these places and is, perhaps, most closely associated with Mercè Rodoreda's novel of the same name. We will end the tour in the square with a visit to the air-raid shelter built during the Spanish Civil War.
