Barcelona is world famous as a city that emanates culture, creativity, art, music, trends and design, elements that combine and interact to trace the particular style of an international brand.
In the last 25 years, the city has become one of the favourite bases of operation for architects, designers, photographers, illustrators and creative professionals from all over the world. Adding to the talent already in place, as well as the legacy of universal artists such as Gaudí, Miró, Tàpies and Brossa - to name but a few - these artistic professionals have turned design into one of Barcelona's signs of identity.
Barcelona Design Tour submerges us in Barcelona’s design culture and offers us a group of actors who make up the city’s design sector. This map concentrates the main entities, premises, schools, hotels, bars, restaurants, fashion shops and bookstores, as well as other important locations that can help you to understand why Barcelona has become one of the design capitals of the world.
