As a site-specific intervention in the Palace of Virreina, situated in the Rambla de Barcelona, Antoni Muntadas proposed a double, horizontal and vertical tour. The first consisted of opening up the old passage connecting the Rambla and the Boqueria market. The second represented a vertical passage, using the elevator, which ran through four floors of the Virreina, on some of which municipal officials were at work. The route could be followed during working hours, which meant that the public could find out about an unusual aspect of the building.
