Poblenou’s Captivating Mural

Mural Poblenou

Street Art in Poblenou | Julio Arreaza

Guess what day of the week it is! Our #MondaySuggestion this week is #MuyAlt. This time, we suggest a visit to a wall pertaining to the unique street art that is very characteristic and representative of Poblenou. It’s found in an abandoned park on the corner of Calle Selva de Mar and Calle Veneçuela. It’s worth it to go take a look, and to explore the wall and its surrounding area, especially since its filled with art on all sides. The best time to visit and to go appreciate the magnificent murals of Poblenou is at sunset. Enjoy!

How to get there:

  • Metro: L4 (Selva de Mar)
  • Bus: 26

Running Barcelona: How to Discover Its Treasures Step-by-Step

There’s no more revealing, memorable or purely human way to see a city than by taking it in stride by stride, even when you’ve spent a significant amount of time living there. The exciting sensation that characterizes the discovery of what undeniably belongs to you and your “home base” is even more intense when that city is Barcelona. We are certain that running is the best way to truly see it in detail, to view its exuberant gardens through a symbolic magnifying glass, take in its impactful architecture, its bars brimming with energy, and to observe the exciting streets that compose this magical city. As a result, we bring you four running routes through which to see the city: some more urban, others on the wilder side and even one that promises a view of the Catalan capital from impressive heights. Tie up those laces!

Neighborhood Strength in the Form of Street Art

Situated in the Barcelona district Sant Martí, the Poblenous neighborhood was the area with the highest industrial concentration in Catalonia at the end of the 19th century. During the last few years, this place has progressively transformed its streets and buildings into improvised canvases on which the likes of artists Sebastien Waknine, Fabrizio Bianchini (Jupiterfab) and Stefano Phen have expressed themselves and created works of art. Nowadays, this neighborhood is one of Barcelona’s most active and dynamic, in addition to being a cultural and artistic point of reference thanks to the constant transformation it’s recently undergone. Its streets are a mix of styles and cultures, where locals and tourists share the industrial and cosmopolitan essence of the zone that has been transformed into the Catalan capital of Street Art.
