22@ and Poblenou

The reference in architecture

After the 1992 Olympic Games, Barcelona became the city of reference in contemporary architecture and urban planning in Europe. All along the seafront, from the World Trade Centre to the Forum area, new city icons created by Jean Nouvel, Enric Miralles, Frank O. Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Dominique Perrault, Enric Ruiz-Geli, Óscar Tusquets and many more stand side by side. In the late 19th and nearly the whole 20th century, Poblenou used to be an important industrial district with many textile factories. Only recently has this area undergone a radical transformation to become a laboratory for constant innovation, focusing on media, technology and design. These days, massive warehouses house cool lofts, co-working spaces, universities, libraries, trendy cafes and creative cultural projects.

Policy during the Covid-19 pandemic

Although the situation currently appears to be improving, we believe that present conditions still require specific safety measures during your visit. At the same time, we understand that many are facing uncertainty when making travel plans. With this in mind, we apply flexible cancellation terms. Health, both yours and ours, is a priority.

We have introduced additional measures to ensure you feel safe when visiting with us.  Below are steps we will be undertaking to enhance hygiene standards and take into consideration the social distancing aspect in this new era of travel:

  • Guides and participants will always wear facemasks inside buildings and on transport. They are not obligatory anymore outside, but we strongly advise to wear them in crowded places.
  • We offer hand sanitizer.
  • The social distance of 1m50 will always be respected.
  • Guides will be using radio-guides and we provide listening devices with single-use headphones (you may also bring your own).
  • As we only offer private tours, you will not be sharing visits with strangers, thus allowing you to feel more comfortable.
  • We comply with all restrictions currently in force in Catalonia, and will also make sure to avoid crowds and highly frequented places.

Due to the exceptional situation worldwide, we now offer flexible cancellation terms. You can cancel your tour for free up to 24 hours before the start time.
