What is La Bullanga?

La Bullanga is the first project of the Co-op Prospeccions en Sorra, SCCL. We work in the promotion of activities that spread the knowledge about the historical and cultural heritage of Barcelona in a respectful and sustainable way. Our methodology is based in the usage of techniques that allow the participation and interaction, making learning history fun and dynamic. Bullanga is the name of the large number of uprisings that took place in Barcelona during the XIX century, as an expression of the public unrest. The election of the name it’s our way to pay homage to those Barceloneses who over the centuries have survived sieges, wars and exile due to their incorruptible character and spirit of solidarity.

Who are we?

La Bullanga project starts with a shared idea of two brothers passionated about history: the necessity of proposing a new model to share and promote the historical and cultural heritage of Barcelona. To make this happen, instead of creating a traditionally run operation, we decided to build a small co-op. We believe in a fairer and social economy and we think a co-op is a good way to promote democracy and transparency inside a working place. We both have an academic training in Humanities and we want to share our knowledge about the history of the city in an original, creative, and above all, respectful way with the live in the neighborhoods.

What we do?

First of all, we don’t do tours or guided visits. You won’t be in a massive, faceless group. We won’t have microphones and you won't follow any coloured flags. Instead, you’ll be on a secret mission to unveil all the weird and wonderful things about one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You will walk by the hand of the characters of the history we introduce to you, and you will make decisions to survive the challenges and get to the end of the adventure. Additionally to the historical experience, you will also engage and get to know the bars, commerce and organizations rooted in the area, true guarantors of sustainability in the city. No matter if you're born and raised in Barcelona or is the first time you visit the city, we propose to (re)discover its history through a new urban experience concept: interactive, perfectly tailored to your preferences and respectful to those who live and work in its neighborhoods. Like in a cooking recipe, the key is in the balance of the ingredients. That's why the experiences we've created pair four elements: historical heritage, interactivity, customization and sustainability. Enjoy in a unique way the rich heritage of the city. Get inside the gates!

Social Return

The history of Barcelona is the history of its streets and the people that live there. The city has always been characterized by an active and dynamic civil society, capable of creating a solid commercial, associative and neighborhood fabric. One of the objectives of La Bullanga is that our activity has a positive impact on the environment and, in this way, we can make our contribution on the path to a more social, fair and committed economy. We believe that the decisions we make as consumers say a lot about us and have a key social impact. That's why we encourage you to buy and support local businesses, social economy initiatives and organizations that work daily on the ground so that towns and neighborhoods are places full of life. In this section we offer you useful information on the part of this social fabric with which we collaborate on our itineraries. We encourage you to know it first-hand!

"All of us were impressed at just how good the experience was. One of my friends had lived in Barcelona for a few years, so she was particularly pleased to discover some surprising new places".
