Improvements in and around the Park Güell

From this summer onwards, various actions are being taken to maintain and protect the heritage of the Park Güell, both in the monumental area and the park environs. A total of 5.7 million euros is to be invested, the funds coming from money raised from the admission price charged to enter the site.

The measures to control access to the Park Güell were introduced in October 2013 to manage the volume of visitors better and use the money raised to renovate and improve adjacent neighbourhoods. The move has seen the estimated 9 million visitors to the park in 2012 drop to 2.9 million in 2016.

I am glad you liked my city ! Unfortunately, there's no skyscraper planned in Barcelona, and has never been. The current city council is against buildings with certain height, midrises and highrises, so there won't be any new project coming soon.

The only project going on so far that reaches 100m is a residential building that has been many years in stand by.

About the height restrictions, there are in airport surroundings, like for example Plaza Europa office cluster (120-130m). There is also the myth that no building in Barcelona would ever surpass the 172m of Sagrada Familia. I hope that may have helped

It is mainly local opposition to tall buildings. There is also a lack of demand for for expensive office space to justify tall office buildings. The hotel building in the harbour was cut back from 170 meters to 95 due to local opposition, it had nothing to do with height restrictions.

There have been some projects for tall residential buildings some 30-50 floors tall in the harbour right in front of the mountain but again, strong local opposition means that they will likely never materialize.

A good example of the local opposition againt tall buildings is the city hall in the old town which had its top 4 floors removed to scale back the building from 12 to 8 floors to make it less invasive.

It is the building in the center of this picture before the removal of the top 4 floors.

Barcelona isn’t afraid

The minute’s silence held this Friday, 18 August, in Paça de Catalunya to condemn the terrorist attack on La Rambla saw 100,000 people gather on the city centre streets under the spontaneous slogan of “I’m not afraid” shouted en masse. The Full City Council also met for an extraordinary session to condemn the attack and show solidarity with the victims.

“Fear will not prevail. We shall walk down La Rambla again and do so freely, with love for our city and life.” These words conclude the official statement that the Mayor, Ada Colau, read out at the extraordinary session of the Full City Council, called at short notice. They also explain why 100,000 people came out onto the streets for a minute’s silence that was going to be held in Plaça de Catalunya at 12 noon.

Once the minute’s silence was over, and with the slogan “I’m not afraid”, the crowd headed down La Rambla, over the site of the attack. According to the city police, 100,000 people took to the city streets. Shows of solidarity were repeated throughout the day along the boulevard, which gradually filled with spontaneous demonstrations of solidarity, pain and rejection of terror.

On Saturday 19, and Sunday 20, from 10 in the morning to 8 in the evening, everyone will be able to sign the city’s Book of Condolences, which will be in the Saló de Cent at City Hall.

This is the official statement that was read out at the Extraordinary Council Session:

“This Thursday a series of terrorist attacks have been carried out in Catalonia that have resulted in dozens of victims. On La Rambla in Barcelona, people of many nationalities and all ages, individuals and families taking a stroll and enjoying our city, have been wounded and killed.

These families could be any Barcelona resident. In fact, they are our families.

Faced with these blows of hate that have shaken the city, the Full City Council, as the body that represents the citizens of Barcelona, agrees to:
  • Express its most heartfelt condolences to all the victims, as well as their friends and families. Barcelona and its citizens are with you and offer you all their warmth and support.
  • Condemn with the utmost vigour this attack. One more in a long list of barbaric attacks which, from Baghdad to Orlando and Mogadishu, along with Madrid, Paris, Nice, London, Brussels, Berlin and Manchester, aim to impose terror, fear and hate.
  • Thank the public service workers, especially those of the police and emergency services, for their rapid and coordinated response, and the care they are taking of the victims and their relatives. The city wishes to acknowledge the solidarity shown by various entities, businesses and the general public who, immediately and proactively, put themselves at the service of the community at such a difficult time.
  • Say that we feel supported. Right from the beginning we have received shows of love and support from everywhere. From cities and people all over the world that have sent us their messages of solidarity in the last few hours.
  • Finally, we wish to send a clear and unequivocal message to those responsible for these attacks: we will not yield. These cowardly attacks will not change the values of a brave city. We will not allow hate nor racism to take root among us. Barcelona will continue to be a city of peace, proud of its diversity and harmony.

Fear will not prevail. We shall walk down La Rambla again and do so freely, with love for our city and life.”
