It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Open galleries in Poble Nou
Once a derelict Industrial district, Poble Nou has been undergoing a dramatic transformation in recent years and although located well off the beaten track, is now flourishing as an important artistic and musical hub in Barcelona.
Many factories and warehouses have been converted into ambitious lofts, galleries and shops, and this September resident artists and owners will be throwing open their doors to present the finest of their artistic endeavors for the fourth year running.
The spaces will be representing work by international photographers, Illustrators and graphic designers by day (a few of the most popular galleries include Niu, HANGAR and La Escosa) and cutting edge displays of the latest in audiovisual media by night – 17 September will see events beginning at 8pm on the “Escenari Top” (Top Stage) on Calle Pallars/Calle Roc Boronat.
