Discover Barcelona through your senses. From the old town to modenist builidings following the path of the markets of the city. My grandmother used to sell watermelons and melons in la Rambla, nearby the Boqueria. When she told me this story, it was the first time I heard about this market, the mostfamous in Barcelona. La Boqueria is one of the oldest markets in the city. The place was buzzing withactivity when its actual location was just a field near the citywall. Afterwards, by the growing of the city,more markets were built as the Concepció, the Llibertat or the Abaceria. This walk proposes to make anapproach to the history of Barcelona through the taste, the colours and the perfumes of its markets.Barcelona and the 5 senses!

They really suit as a teambuildingactivity. Montjuïc is a sportive background. The mountain was one of the firstF1 circuit and has some of the ‘92 games facilities. It is a part of some popular happenings, like the “Cursadel Corte Inglés “ and several years, during the city festivities, an ascent to the Castle was organized.We are going to meet at the beginning of Paral·lel Avenue.
