Colonialism is one of the most hidden realities of Catalonia. The truth is that the Catalan capital was one of the areas of the peninsula where this practice was most exploited. The fact is that today's Barcelona cannot be understood without the colonial transfers from the American and African continents.

But the triumphal story that links colonialism and modernity has always hidden a history of exploitation and inequality, where slavery becomes a central element that explains the contradictions of our city.

Don't miss this opportunity to discover a side of Barcelona that you don't know, and to understand how the past has influenced the city's current situation.
