Cuitat Meridiana

In the extreme north of Barcelona, with an impossible orography, the great stair lift- popemobile, they call it- damaged, blocks of five and six floors without an elevator, an actual unemployment rate well above the registered one (of 15%) and a migrated population that approaches 30%. It’s 10,000 neighbours first jumped into the headlines for leading eviction figures. With hundreds of empty flats and a value up to 70% mower than the rest of the city, they went on to lead the squat. In the latest rental data, they repeat as the poorest neighbourhood in the city. But it is also the they get out of the environment.
