A trip to Barcelona cannot be complete without visiting its cultural sites. The art and cultural activities in Barcelona will give you an insight into the city’s history, traditions, and artwork. Focusing on cinemas, although film dubbing is still fairly common in Spain, there are also places where you can watch films in the language they were originally produced in—just look for the marking ‘VO’, ‘VOS’ or ‘VOSE’ (original version with Spanish subtitles) beside the showing. This project provides information related to cultural venues located in Barcelona city, and the shortest path between cinemas and the closest metro stop.
