Aire de Barcelona
Soothing waters

These impressive Arabian-style baths are the result of an ambitious warehouse renovation in Barcelona’s trendy Borne district, conceived by a group of Andalucians and designed by renowned Catalan architects Luis Alonso and Sergi Balaguer. Initiated in part to breathe new life into unique 19th-century architecture—the warehouse formerly housed myriad bodegas (wine cellars)—and in part to resurrect a forgotten leisure activity, Aire de Barcelona now offers ancient modes of relaxation and replenishment in a space with its own unquestionable appeal.

Underneath the cavernous stone arches are multiple means of escape from stress and tension: salt water baths cleanse the skin and enable meditative flotation; pools of broadly varying temperatures impact body and mind; jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms complete the program. The idea is to free your mind by soothing the toils of the body, thus allowing the unfettered pursuit of wisdom. Whether or not any deep contemplation ensues, your experience of Aire de Barcelona will undoubtedly be one of profound relaxation.
