About the tour

Join our Gothic Quarter Free Walking Tour to discover the oldest part of Barcelona and learn about Catalan history, culture and traditions.

Starting from Plaza Catalunya let us take you through the winding, narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the oldest part of Barcelona. We’ll show you the most interesting monuments of the Roman and Medieval city such as the Cathedral, the Royal Palace, Sant Felip Neri’s Square, the Roman walls, the Jewish Quarter and many more.

We’ll explore together 2000 years of Barcelona history from ancient ruins, old architecture through to the time of the Civil War. On the way we’ll meet kings, queens, invaders, dictators, artists, Christopher Columbus and even a Hairy Catalan!

At the end of the tour you can ask us about the best things to do in the Gothic Quarter. The closest museums and activities, great restaurants, tapas bars and the best place for Churros or paella in town!

Me pareció excelente, el guía muy profesional, hizo de este tour una excelente experiencia, no solo por el dominio de la temática sino por lo ameno al contarla a quienes participamos de esa experiencia. Muy recomendado.

No me imagino una forma mejor de conocer Barcelona gótica, su historia y secretos que con este tour y su guía Fran. Realicé la actividad con mis padres y las 2h pasaron volando gracias a él. Sin duda recomendamos este tour y realizariamos más con BeLocalTours! Un abrazo para Wilfredo el Velloso.

El tour estuvo muy interesante. El guía Fran sabe mucho y lo transmite con pasión. Además nos dio buenos consejos sobre dónde comer y otros paseos para hacer. A mi esposo y a mi nos gustó mucho
