About us

What is La Bullanga?

La Bullanga is the first project of the non-profit co-op Prospeccions en Sorra, SCCL.

We work in the promotion of activities for the dissemination of historical and cultural heritage from the values of the social economy. Our methodology is characterized by the use of techniques that encourage participation and interaction and that make that learning history it is also a dynamic and fun process.

Bullanga is the name of the series of popular uprisings that exploded during the 19th century in Barcelona and which channeled the discontent of the population eager of changes. So the name is our particular tribute to the people of Barcelona, who throughout his hectic history has managed to survive sieges, wars and exiles thanks to their unbreakable character and to the solidarity between citizens.

Who are we?

The La Bullanga project is born from an idea shared by two brothers passionate about history: the need to propose a new model for the dissemination of the historical and cultural heritage of Barcelona.

To carry out this task, instead of creating a traditional company, we have created a cooperative. We believe in a more just and social economy, and we think that a cooperative is the type of organization that promotes democracy and transparency in the workplace.

Based on our humanistic academic training, we want to share the knowledge about the history of the city in an original, creative and, above all, respectful way with the social life of the neighborhoods.

What do we do?

First of all, we do not do guided tours. Do not expect huge and impersonal groups, guided by microphones and colored umbrellas. Instead, you will be enrolled in a secret adventure through some of the most emblematic streets and corners of the city. By the hand of the characters of the storylines we put together, you will have to make decisions to overcome the challenges and reach the end of the adventure.

Additionally to the historical experience, you will also get in touch and know the social fabric that fills the neighborhoods with life. Accompany us in the promotion of local commerce and the associations and initiatives rooted in the city, which are the true guarantee of sustainability.

As in a recipe, the key is in the perfect balance of its ingredients. For this reason, the experiences we propose pair 4 elements: dissemination of historical heritage, interactivity, customization and social commitment. Enjoy in a unique way the rich historical and social legacy of the city. Get inside the gates!
