Those Muros Vivos

FROM GAUDI TO YOUR EVERYDAY VANDAL, walls may as well be canvases in Barcelona with very few facades spared any sort of adornment or decoration.

Holding mosaic, relief, street art and graffiti, the lively walls that fill the Catalonian capital do more than just add texture to the place. Each stencil, stroke and style says something about Barcelona's culture and history, constantly breathing new facets, new details and ultimately, new life into the city.
