What you'll do

You'll do a social trend tour, walking, through the “Chinatown Hipster” of Barcelona, ​​a name created by myself to explain the transformation through which the neighborhood I live is going through: Fort Pienc, Eixample Derecho. We'll start at Arc de Triomphe, where you'll take a tour of the main streets of the neighborhood, where I'll show you the architectural contrasts, the different shops, stores, design and languages ​​that can be found in the same neighborhood and, often, in the same block. During the tour I will also explain how to identify the “gentrification” signs of the neighborhood. We will finish the tour on the terrace of my apartment, where you have a 180º view of Barcelona. You can see the Sagrada Familia, the Agbar Tower and the Mafre Tower. We'll finish the "Chinatown Hipster" tour with a chinese tea.
