BARCELONA & 1929/1992

Explore how city and nature fuse in Montjuïc with our BARCELONA & 1929/1992 Special tour.

Today we want to talk about one of our special tours: BARCELONA & 1929/1992. Montjuïc has been crucial for Barcelona throughout its history by way of its location and geology. We will focus on the relationship between the city and the mountain through the role Montjuïc played in the Universal Exposition of 1929, where it made its debut as a space of leisure for the citizens of Barcelona.

We will discover how the former Can Valero shanty town and stone quarries were removed to leave space for Mies van der Rohe’s German Pavilion, the National Palace, the old Botanical Garden, Puig i Cadafalch’s Pavilions, the Greek Theater etc.
