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.

The Mercat Drap-Art is an artistic recycling and sustainable consumption market, held at Plaça Reial every Saturday from April to June.
All types of articles can be found, made with recycled materials: small steam boats made with cans, bracelets, pendants and rings made of forks, coffee capsule costume jewelry, bags made with bike tires, decorative vinyl record articles, robots and lamps of containers, earrings of analog camera films.
With the markets, Drap-Art suports a green economy, which allows artists, designers and craftsmen to live, looking for a way to make a living in tune with their ethics and that allows them to put their grain of sand towards creating a better world.
Of all the memorable Catalan traditions, which include 'fire runs' and dancing 'giants', it's arguably the human towers that have the most impact on those watching them. To enjoy a true festival of these castells, head to Vilafranca de Penedès for its annual festa major, from the 29th August to the 2nd September, which commemorates the town's patron Sant Fèlix.
The casteller groups that have more participated in the San Félix Day, August 30, have been els Xiquets de Valls (currently, the Colla Vella and the Colla Joves), the Castellers de Vilafranca and the Minyons de Terrassa. Even so, also has participated els Nens del Vendrell, Colla Jove Xiquets de Tarragona, els Xicots de Vilafranca, among others. Each human tower is an exemplary example of team work, from the crowd forming the supporting pinya at the bottom via the columns formed as each level rises and culminating with the youngest members of the crew scampering right to the very top to crown the construction, which is officially completed once the smallest of all (l'enxaneta) raises his or her hand. Cue thunderous applause.
