Barcelona is rated the No.1 city in the Mediterranean to cycle. 

With its palm-tree lined bike paths, flat cityscape and spectacular monuments its easy to see why.

So if youre feeling adventurous putting foot to the metal is the best way to discover the futuristic 22@ district.

On the eastern side of the city lies the 22@ district.

This is Barcelona city’s proposal to create a new urban district in the smart-city model. 

Think futuristic buildings which robotically change and adapt according to the weather and experimental pedestrian and cycle friendly zones where car traffic is restricted

in order to create public space.

In this 3 hour cycle excursion we escape the touristic centre to explore this area.

Visiting such cutting-edge architecture as the Media-TiC building

(pictured in the background.)

  We will get to know the locally born artist behind the modern facade of

La Sagrada Familia- Josep María Subirachs

and we will see the cool street art murals, both legal and non, that characterise this

up-and-coming area that many a tourist doesn’t see.
