Basílica de la Mercè

Barcelona’s cultural heritage is throwing open its doors

For 3 days, buildings all over the city are holding free tours and activities so everyone can celebrate European Heritage Days.

European Heritage Days is the festival celebrating our entire historical legacy. Taking advantage of this occasion, towns and entities all over Catalonia are holding free activities for all audiences, so for the 3 days of this celebration, you’ll find guided tours, plays, concerts and exhibitions in buildings all over the country. Barcelona wasn’t about to miss the celebration, and around 30 venues have joined in, making the Heritage Days a great chance to get to know our city’s wealth and appeal as you discover iconic constructions that many of you have probably never visited.

European Heritage Days is being held on 11, 12 and 13 October at different times depending on the building you’re visiting. The list of activities is long, and they’re being held at different venues all over the city. For example, guided tours are being held of the former Farinera Sant Jaume flour factory, the Palau Güell, Sant Pacià church of Barcelona, the basilica of Sant Just i Pastor, Sant Joan of Gràcia, the cathedral of Barcelona, the Palau Moja, the Sagrat Cor on Tibidabo, the basilica of La Mercè and other locations. The programme also features unusual experiences, such as Game Experience Barcelona, the bell tower at Santa Maria del Pi church and the rooftop of Santa Maria del Mar. In addition to all of this, you will also find walking routes through different districts like Vallvidrera and Montjuïc, activities for children and thematic tours.

All the activities are free of charge, but you need to book in advance, and tickets are sold out for some of them. You can find complete information on the Cultural Heritage calendar.
