• Live culture from home

    How to enjoy cultural plans from home? ICONO want to help you making pleasant your quarantine.

ICONO recommends: cultural plans from home

We ICONO believe that, while we wait for the sun to rise after the storm, it’s a good time to be resourceful and think of activities that can help us have a good time from the comfort of our home. That is why we bring you a few activities for which you only need a book, a computer or your imagination.

Discover Barcelona through literature

If you know ICONO, you know perfectly what two great novels we are going to recommend so that you can explore the streets of Barcelona with your imagination. Both the Cathedral of the Sea, by Ildefonso Falcones, and The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, are novels that will transport you to the Barcelona of other times thanks to their careful descriptions of the urban landscape of the Catalan city. Use your wits and move to those worlds whose stories and fantasies will allow you to escape from reality for a few moments. Also, when the good weather arrives, you can remember the anecdotes of the books by taking one of our tours dedicated to them.

Walk around Roman Barcino

Can you imagine being able to take a walk through the Barcelona of Roman times from your sofa? Well, it is possible thanks to the Barcelona City Council. On their website you will find a spectacular 3D map of the Barcino from the 1st century BC from which you can walk its streets and discover how our ancestors lived and what their customs were. If after your virtual visit you want to know even more about the origins of our city and the traditions that characterize it, you can take one of our tours dedicated to both the history and traditions of Barcelona.

Explore Gaudí’s artwork

Another idea could be to visit some of the most important architectural works of Antoni Gaudí. How to do it from your home? Very easy. Both Sagrada Familia and Casa Batlló offer you the possibility to visit them virtually on their respective web pages. And since we know that after taking these tours online you won’t be able to wait to visit both buildings in person, we leave you a couple of our tours to plan your next getaway.
