Eixample, modernist architecture

Located in the Barcelona’s left-of-centre downtown, is an intense mix of multiculturalism. The MACBA and CCCB, both bastions of the contemporary art scene, thrives in the Raval’s narrow streets and plazas where street art and skate culture coexist with lots of bars, creative start-ups and innovative shops who feed off its sheer energy.

Poblenou, the creative future
High-tech buildings, digital start-ups and artist lofts are the main contrasts in Poblenou. This neighbourhood, which once was the city’s industrial periphery, its now the 22@, an active business district. We must highlight the DHUB, the new Barcelona’s Design Museum next to the semi-abandoned factories around.

As the Barcelona designer hotel, Hotel Omm, wants to show you the creativity of the catalan capital.
