‘Women of Ciutat Vella’ walk

The first woman to obtain a university degree, a variety artist, an art nouveau painter, one of the finest sopranos of the second half of the 20th century, the architect of the Catalan state education system, and many more women at one time lived in the Ciutat vella, Barcelona’s old quarter.

Some of them you probably know, like Montserrat Caballé, or maybe their name rings a bell (Isabel Güell?).

Taking the Women of Ciutat Vella Walk, organised by Barcelona Turisme, will introduce you to many women and the streets and squares they frequented, a nice way to get to know their hidden histories connected with this district and its architectonic beauties.
