Our Series

A Series of books hosts, under a joint title, works that the editorial believes that have a coherence in common, that together can provide knowledge on a subject in all its facets and nuances. Sometimes panoramic views and sometimes as specific as possible.

Following this premise, the Barcelona City Council's Institut del Paisatge Urbà (Institute of Urban Landscape) series are connected to the projects and the objectives of our institution. We expect that these series interest you

And it has continued with views on the premises of restoration and the protagonists of the time.

Barcelona Paisatges Series

A city is formed by multiple facets: large urban actions but also small details.

This Series allows access to often hidden aspects, ignored because of the rush. Things apparently unimportant that they give character to the city and tell us about the history of its citizens and the development of Barcelona as a living entity.

Books that invite us to walk calmly, discovering our own environment.

Emblematic shops, balconies that look and where to look, the city of the 18th century that remains for our eyes and the roofs of the city as a place of life and history are the aspects which you can enjoy in the collection.
