Barcelona has lots of faces: apart from the Gothic quarter and the modernist one, there is a contemporary city that looks to the future, another Barcelona where the most renowned architects all over the world have been challenged to build their buildings.

The purpose of this itinerary is to discover the recent patrimony of both 20th and 21st centuries.

We start visiting the Pabellón Mies van der Rohe, initially conceived for the Universal Exhibition in 1929. We continue along Montjuïc Mountain having a look at the Olympic ring and the Sport facilities where the Olympic Games where held in 1992: the Stadium, Sant Jordi Palace by Arata Isozaki, the Tower by Santiago Calatrava.

We will stop in a window of the bay to enjoy the views of the harbor and the city from the heights.

Arriving to the entrance door of Barcelona’s harbor, there is the World Trade Center, inaugurated in 1999, a work by Li Pei’s.
