BCN Architecture APP
The Barcelona City Council and the Architects’ Association of Catalonia have developed the BCN Arquitectura app, which features a guide to more than 100 iconic buildings in the city, most of which can be found along the most popular tourist routes.
The application documents every building with photos, floor plans and explanatory texts. It also suggests different routes which will give visitors a unique appreciation of the main architectural movements that took place in the city from the late 19th century through to the present day.
The BCN Arquitectura app was launched at the Barcelona TurisTIC Forum in May 2013. The app was also presented at the Association’s headquarters in June. It is now available for download, free of charge, from the Apple Store. It will soon be available for Android as well.
The aim is to enhance the experience of people visiting Barcelona by providing them with new cultural content that will give them a deeper insight into the city’s architecture. They can also take advantage of it when preparing their trip.
