B&B | Gratis in Barcelona… La Rambla del Raval

La Rambla del Raval, designed by Carles Diaz, Xavier Sust, Oscar Tusquets and Lluís Clotet, is a new space in the heart of the Raval Quarter. The space was gained after bringing down five blocks of houses. The result is a wide promenade with palm trees and terraces that is now a meeting point for the residents of this neighborhood.

With less than 10 years of a heavily criticized life La Rambla del Raval has become a place of social contact, especially appreciated by residents with a Pakistan background. That’s why some also call it La Rambla de Pakistan.

The spirit of the old Raval neighborhood with it’s bad reputation now co-exist with new buildings and an oval shaped 5-star hotel. This mix of new and old is what is so special in this rambla.
