“Barceloneta – Maritime city"

A new tour organised by the CCCB reveals a former port area dedicated exclusively to mercantile activities converted into one of the city’s most popular public spaces

Beginning in March, a new guided tour organised by the Contemporary Culture Centre of Barcelona (CCCB) will take place throughout the remainder of 2015. The tour in question is entitled La Barceloneta. Ciutat marítima (Barceloneta – Maritime City), a walking tour through the most recently developed part of the Ciutat Vella district that reveals how the city has been opened to the sea through a series of municipal projects that have converted port areas reserved exclusively for mercantile activities and beach areas populated with workers’ huts into the public spaces they are today.

The tour of the district’s urban structure, typical of the age of Enlightenment, will attempt to explain the transformations that have taken place over the years and reveal how successive powers that be have continually tried to endanger the democratizing effects of these changes.

The tour is part of the programme of tours organised by the CCCB designed to offer creative paths of exploration and analysis of the geography, history and planning of the city, all the while bearing in mind the social dimension of the city, its districts and their residents as well as the environmental, logistical, economical and town planning challenges that these transformations have given rise to over the years.
