The history of the Zona Franca and its political, economic, urban and environmental impact on the Barcelona plain, in a lab-format micro exhibition.

Coinciding with the centenary of what is now the Zona Franca consortium, the MUHBA is organising a small lab-format exhibition entitled ‘El port franc i la fàbrica de Barcelona. Les edats de la Zona Franca’ [Barcelona’s free trade and factory estate. The ages of the Zona Franca]. The exhibition traces the history of the Zona Franca and its political, economic, urban and environmental impact on the Barcelona plain.

The exhibition offers visits with Marc A. García, director of the office for the Llobregat Delta plain; routes around the Zona Franca and two days of debate (La Zona Franca: dels orígens portuaris als nous paradigmes mediambientals) on 15 and 22 March. Advance booking is recommended.
