Full description
Start the bike tour by following the traces of the city’s Industrial Revolution along the Ruta de Barrio. Find out how Barcelona has been transformed since the 19th-century into the city we know today. The route begins through the Poblenou district as you peddle along bike lanes where no other tourist has gone before past the former textile factories that drove the city’s economy. See how the fishermen and dockers worked, and what this district and its environment is like today, from graffiti-tagged backyards to hidden beach factories.

Then, cycle from Bogatell beach to the modern innovation district 22. Stop to go food shopping with the local guide at a traditional local market hall Mercat del Clot. Make a stop to enjoy a picnic of local produce by the sea.
