Rather, this tour lets you get to know the street artists who want to raise their voice and confront the society around them.

To achieve this, the guide will accompany you on a leisurely stroll through the southern part of the Barrio Gótico and El Raval, Poble Sec and Montjuïc. You will stop in front of pieces of art and your guide will give you an explanation so you can understand who the artist is and what message they are conveying in their piece.
