Organized in 1952, Amics del Passeig de Gràcia (Friends of Passeig de Gràcia) is one of Barcelona’s oldest commerce and neighborhood associations. Its aim is to safeguard and promote the interests of its members and to watch out for the good upkeep and maintenance of the avenue. Passeig de Gràcia is one of the world’s most renowned and important shopping streets, with an outstanding reputation both at home and abroad. It is unique for its Modernista buildings, designed by such notable architects as Gaudí, Puig i Cadafalch, and Domènech i Montaner, among others. The establishments of many of the top Spanish and international firms are to be found on this avenue, which forms a magnificent showcase of our city for the world to see.
