Why free art in Barcelona?
The idea for these guides sprang from hard times. Whether in boom or recession, art remains fundamental. But while free art is a great idea, not all great art is free. So this guide takes you places where there is no admission fee.
BCN Free Art 01: The Port and Barceloneta guides you around artworks on Barcelona’s waterfront and through the fishing district of Barceloneta, describing Barcelona’s history, the artists who created these sculptures and the stories that bring this city alive.
The Barcelona Free Art guides inform without being academic, helping you enjoy Barcelona’s culture as you wander or cycle around town. Check out our other books at poblesecbooks.com.
