Walk among the dead this halloween

 

Poblenou Cemetery

Av. Icaria, s/n,

If you aren’t scared of the dark and wouldn’t mind delving into some history, visit the cemetery of Poblenou on the 30th October for a historical walk through the first cemetery in the city and learn about the history of Barcelona from 1775 until the conclusion of the Exposition of the 1888 and the last years of the nineteenth century. Yes, it gets that deep!

 

The route starts historically from when Bishop Clement blessed the new burial grounds in 1775, and concludes with the Universal Exposition. Expect to see 29 marked graves – one for the tombstone lovers. The walk unlocks more than just spirits, with a deep exploration of the development of technology, culture and moral values, thus a whole new set of ideologies. One way to spend halloween!
