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!

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

El Tour fue EXTRAORDINARIO! Completamente recomendable, en poco más de 2 horas podrás adentrarte en la magia de los comienzos de Barcelona descubriendo SECRETOS muy bien guardados en el Barrio Gótico.

Además - con David - comprenderás muchísimas razones de la Barcelona actual, nacidas en los comienzos de esta increíble ciudad. Gracias por la pasión y el cariño con el que hacéis los Tours !!!!
