Brunch in the Park

Brunch-In the Park makes us dance to electronica in summer, always opening the new season with a great setlist. Great artists from around the world, such as Amélie Lens, Boris Brejcha, Carl Cox or Deborah De Luca, among many others, are coming to the city this summer to make us dance non-stop every Sunday. This edition, which takes place from July 3 to October 9, has fourteen sessions spread over different locations: the Gardens of Joan Brossa, the Parc de la Trinitat, the Fòrum and the Servei d’Esports de la UB.

The attraction of the festival, which over the years has become one of the most popular outdoor events in the city, comes not only from the music and the renowned artists who pass through it, but also from its environmental commitment and of its calm atmosphere. which makes it so appealing to groups of friends, music lovers and families with young children. Indeed, like the other seasons, this one also offers Petit Brunch, a set of activities and free workshops for children.

Las Ramblas

The transformation of the Ramblas is in process. The first phase of the remodeling of the passage includes modifying the layout of Avenida Drassanes to lengthen the Rambla and open it to the sea. The remodeling of the Ramblas will leave more space for pedestrians and less for vehicles. The objective is to modernize the promenade, to make it greener, friendlier and more comfortable to reactivate local shops.

In addition, this new Ramblas will be very unique because three crossroads will become spaces that will enhance the architectural heritage and the urban context. They will be the Moja-Betlem space, the Pla de la Boqueria and the Pla del Teatre, which will be like a square that will be configured in a different way, with a single platform, to responce to the morphology of the space.

Garden Square in Eixample

The interior of the block which delimits the streets of London-Muntaner will be transformed into a green space accessible to the public. This was decided by the Government Commission of Barcelona City Hall, with an urban plan to open this space of approximately 2,146 square meters to the public. Since 1986, the Eixample has been working to recover the interiors of blocks designed by Ildefons Cerdà that have lost their original value.

The creation of this green space is an important step in the program to recover the interiors of blocks, since the London-Muntaner crossroads had no public gardens within 200 meters. The interior of the block will be transferred free of charge to the Town Hall and in exchange, the basement and the ground floor will be provided with commercial uses and parking. Public access will be through the passage at number 86 Calle de Londres and the Court of Lights will be equipped with green elements and street furniture for the enjoyment of neighbors.
