Through four families from Barcelona we witness the consequences of touristification and gentrification in the Catalan capital. Day after day, while many neighbours are being forced out of their homes, the neighbourhoods of Barcelona are losing their essence. How can we prevent it?
Barcelona is one of the most important tourism epicentres in Europe. In 2018 the city received more than 30 million tourists, thus leading the ranking of the most visited cities in Europe. This new historical record confirms the growing and unstoppable trend of the mass arrival of tourists in the city. Numerous studies confirm that said tourism and the real estate speculation that it entails is damaging Barcelona’s neighbourhood life, gradually forcing people out of their homes and neighbourhoods. A reflection that reveals the most human side of a problem that is not only social, but also political and economic.
