Rambla del Ravel, graffiti house in Barcelona

We know this district of Barcelona very well, we have been here several times and stayed in a hotel close by. The Graffiti House on Rambla del Ravel is particularly interesting because of its faces and eyes integrated into the full façade of the building. We are classifying this as art instead of vandalism.

It doesn’t make the neighbourhood safer however. This square and street are known as very active areas for pickpockets and robbers. Please careful and always pay attention to your wallet and camera. When I took these pictures, Kristel kept an eye on people who could possibly approach me with bad intensions.

We kennen deze wijk in Barcelona heel goed, we waren hier verschillende keren en logeerden in een hotel dichtbij. Het Graffiti Huis op Rambla del Ravel is bijzonder interessant vanwege deze gezichten en ogen over de gehele gevel van het huis. We classificeren dit als kunst in plaats van vandalisme. 

Het maakt de wijk er echter niet veiliger op. Het plein alsook de straat staan gekend als zeer gevaarlijk vanwege gauwdieven en overvallers. Let goed op je portemonnee en camera. Toen ik deze foto’s nam, stond Kristel op de uitkijk om me te waarschuwen tegen mensen met verdacht gedrag.

  2. I agree, this is all done by talented and artistic people. If it were not here, I think the building would look very bad.

  4. Art work is lovely. I would imagine the building would be rather drab without it.

  8. It is an unusual building but a fun one. I remember doing the same as Kristel when we were there, standing behind Bill keeping an eye on his pockets. It is a interesting street to visit though.

  9. I agree that this is art and is so full of color. Different from anything that I have seen before.
