The Barcelona example in preserving urban heritage

The Indian Leaders walked around El Raval and Barrio Gótico to witness the extensive renovation carried out in this part of the city

Following the presentation the day before by members of the department of Hàbitat Urbà of Barcelona City Council, the Leaders took a walk from El Raval to Barrio Gótico. During this walk, the MPs witnessed the extensive renovation carried out in this part of the city, which has gone from being a poor area to becoming an example for efficient and sustainable city planning.

Carme Gual i Via, Coordinator of International Relations at Barcelona City Council, accompanied the SICF delegation. Among the most prominent buildings they visited was Barcelona's Contemporary Art Museum, the former Santa Creu and Sant Pau hospital, refurbished and turned into a social space with services such as a library and institutions such as the Institute for Catalan Studies.

They also stopped at Mercado de la Boquería, where they saw how locals and tourists alike pack out the new retail spaces created after the remodelling of traditional food markets. The walk around Barrio Gótico finally took the participants to the City Hall.
