This Barcelona Architecture walk is a calm trip from the foundations of Barcelona up to the current reality, led by the ideas and modus operandi of Enric Miralles, a genius in life that together with Benedetta Tagliabue designed one of the most brilliant works of architecture of this city, the Santa Caterina Market.
The architecture walks are urban expeditions that invite you to discover the architecture of Barcelona through the works of its Masters, examples that generate the city and are the clearest cultural expression of a society as complex as the Catalan one.
