The aim of Architecture Week
is to give people a closer insight into quality architecture and urban planning. For this reason, a series of guided tours have been organised that reveal unexpected or unexplained aspects of the urban physiognomy.
During the course of the Week, the general public can sign up free of charge for six city tours organised by the Architects’ Association of Catalonia in collaboration with various other entities. The routes, either on foot or by bike, are intended for adults and aim to explain the urban renovation that the city is currently undergoing
