Among the artistic trades and crafts you can find

Market in Argenteria Street

We organized our fist market on Argenteria street in 1998 to give better visibility of the shops and ateliers located in the small streets or the neighbourhood and following the patron saint of the gold smiths and artisans St Eloi.

In the pas we have participated in many fiestas and happenings in the barrio del Born and the old town of Barcelona.
