Barcelona’s maritime tradition, protagonist of the “Almanac for the curious”

The objective of the proposal by the Barcelona Municipal Archives (ACHB) is to exhibit archived documents relating to specific dates or events


The city’s maritime tradition is the protagonist of the current edition of the
Almanac per a curiosos (Almanac for the curious). The Mediterranean Sea is essential to the understanding of Barcelona as the city was founded on the basis of its natural port and seafront and, while these have changed radically over the years, they have had a decisive contribution to the defining of the city.

The Almanac for the curious is a periodic initiative that includes reproductions of documents that are in the care of the Barcelona Municipal Archives. Each edition is published in relation to a specific date, festivity, event, or significant calendar period for which the municipal archives possess some documents of interest, in this particular case, six pieces, including etchings and lithographs, that portray the maritime profile of the city.

Concurrently, the ACHB is hosting an exhibition titled
La cultural oficial de la Barcelona franquista (The Official Culture of Barcelona Under Franco) which, with the aid of archived documents, portrays the cultural policy adopted by the first Francoist City Council, which was dedicated to the eradication of all traces of Catalan, secular and democratic tradition.
