Innovative and eco-friendly tourism
Barcelona is a city made to be experienced from within: it allows visitors to mingle with its residents and enjoy its intense identity and artistic and cultural dynamism. It is a city that values and cares for its cultural and architectural heritage but which also opens it up to the people.
Outside the city centre there are less well-known but equally vibrant neighbourhoods where you can discover and enjoy the authentic daily life of the city: where the denizens of Barcelona live, in the parks, markets, cultural centres, bars, restaurants and local shops. Where local business and regional cuisine coexist.
And Barcelona is also a clean city with Biosphere clean-city accreditation. It promotes separated waste management, low greenhouse gas emission transport, it is committed to renewable energy and takes care of its green spaces and beaches.
