Park Güell

‘Gràcia 1900. L’aparador burgès d’un barri obrer’, a portrait of the turn of the century

Discover the important role the neighbourhoods of La Salut and Gràcia played in the early 20th century with a tour of the area.

The neighbourhood of La Salut, home to Park Güell, is full of spectacular historical buildings, as well as more modest areas. This is because, in the years spanning the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, this area of Barcelona went from being a place where the working classes came to spend their free time to one chosen by the city’s elite for their second homes. This is why the streets of La Salut, and Gràcia, too, are imbued with so much history. The Museum of the History of Barcelona has decided to focus one of its many walks on the history of this bit of Barcelona, and has called it ‘Gràcia 1900. L’aparador burgès d’un barri obrer’. The walk starts at Park Güell and goes around the former town of Gràcia, where we still find grand homes from the turn of the century and traces of the conflicts and contradictions that are characteristic of the modern metropolis.

The guided walk begins at the Carmel gate of Park Güell at 10:30 am and lasts roughly three hours. The walk will be held on Sunday 28 April.

The ‘Gràcia 1900. L’aparador burgès d’un barri obrer’ walk is free of charge, but you have to book your spot on the Museum of the History of Barcelona website beforehand.
