The route is a circular course through Barcelona. This flat course runs through the city, passing the famous attractions such as the Camp Nou, then it goes to the Gran Via de les Cortes until Passeig de Grácia, passing La Pedrera and Casa Batllò, moving on to Sagrada Familia and Hospial de Sant Pau as well as the Torre Agbar, leaving behind the Parc de Cuitdadella and Arc de Triomf, to finally approach the starting point, when having passed the Gothic District which leaves you a short distance to la Rambla.
