This tour will show you a different kind of city: the industrial and alternative Barcelona, with high walls painted with graffiti, stencils and all kinds of street art. A specialised guide, who is also an artist, will take you through this open-air museum of contemporary art and tell you about the main murals and most representative works of urban culture
which are often hidden away and little known yet are fully integrated into the landscape.
You'll also learn about the history of the movement and its artists, the variety of forms it can adopt and today's most widely used techniques.
