We will visit the most multicultural, dangerous, and exciting neighborhood of Barcelona: El Raval. We will get to know its history and speak about the uncensored underground Barcelona. We will explore the streets of Raval starting with Plaza Catalunya, where we will talk a little about the history of the city, and then enter and explore the small streets of Raval. We talk about the different community and political movements such as anarchism, the independence movement, and squatter societies. We will touch on topics such as sex, drugs, street art, rumba catalana and immigration, as we go deeper into the most emblematic streets of the neighborhood.
