Two visitors learning all about Catalonia's coastal paths

A walk along Catalonia’s coastal paths

Barcelona’s Maritime Museum to host an exhibition that encourages us to go for a stroll by the sea.

A new temporary exhibition at the Museu Marítim de Barcelona (MMB) is focusing on the paths, known as ‘camins de ronda’, which run parallel with the Catalan coast. Photographs and texts delve into the history of these spaces and depict their beautiful landscapes. For example, we are informed that originally these paths were limited to places where there was a settlement or a fortification – hence their name, ‘ronda’, which is connected with the idea of making the rounds while looking out for an enemy attack.

Nowadays, these coastal routes have become popular with hikers, tourists and photographers, who are attracted by the magnificent views of the coast. The paths exist in many coastal areas in Catalonia, which is why, after its stay at the Barcelona Maritime Museum, where it can be seen until 3 June, the exhibition will be calling in at other museums in the country.
