The Real Barcelona

The Real Barcelona

Everybody knows about Sagrada Familia, La Rambla and Park Guell but the real Barcelona often goes under the radar. El Raval is a very famous area, known for different movements in the start of the 1900s. Almost 100 years later you can still feel the anarchy thriving. If we go back ten years in time, el…
