The multicultural city of Barcelona has many stories and layers as you can imagine. The different nationalities and communities that make up the city support each other creating unbreakable links. If you happen to find yourself in the Raval you will find heaps of colorful barber shops, many ran by Pakistanis, which make for a strong foundation that keeps the community together, turning the barbershop into a landscape of care.
