The Cemetery Route is an activity that reminds us that Barcelona is not just a city, but many cities, a journey into the past and the present in which we find historical, popular and adventure characters, wealth, poverty, love and death.
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. A brief but fantastic and evocative reconstruction of a hundred years of history through 30 tombs, most of them, in neoclassical style.
Montjuïc Cemetery Route
The Montjuïc Cemetery Route is focused chronologically between the years 1883 and 1936. The route includes 37 graves and is conceived as a sample of the rich heritage of the cemetery. It combines graves of artistic interest with graves of historical interest, all of them included in the two main routes.
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.

Discover the characteristics, charm and the most interesting and attractive places of Barcelona's districts and neighbourhoods!
A tour of Roman Barcelona is a box of surprises containing archaeological remains dating from the time the city was established. Barcino, the Roman city founded in the 1st century BC, has left us a valuable legacy, which can be found in the Gothic Quarter, the site of the early walled city.
The city's longest avenue, the Diagonal, cuts through the two neighbourhoods. To the south, Les Corts, which is a blend of modernity and the rural origins of the area. To the north, the smart residential district of Pedralbes, with its parks, quiet streets and outstanding Gothic monastery.
The district of Nou Barris comprises 13 neighbourhoods, each one with its own secrets and hidden corners that are waiting to be discovered. They are blue-collar areas with a lot of character, which have evolved as a result of struggles by the community to improve their services and infrastructures. Now they are proud to show visitors the attractive and innovative green areas which are well worth discovering.
Barcelona's third largest district is characterised by its uneven landform consisting of mountains, hills and valleys, as well as the abundance of green areas that make it one of the most attractive spots for people in search of peace and quiet in the open air.
Sant Andreu was originally an agricultural community, which became one of the city's main industrial and retail districts. In recent years, the area has evolved at a rapid pace, with improvements being made to abandoned industrial sites and derelict plots of land which have been incorporated into the traditional areas of Sant Andreu, with its main square, the Plaça del Mercadal, and the church of Sant Andreu del Palomar.
No other neighbourhood in Barcelona better encapsulates traditional charm and vibrant modernity than Gràcia. Formerly a separate village, it now forms the core of the Barcelona's 6th district, which also includes other neighbourhoods such as Vallcarca, Penitents and La Salut
