Tour description

From it´s humble beginnings 2000 years ago as an innocuous fishing port to it´s modern international standing explore the city´s growth from Roman consolidation, Christian and Jewish persecution, imperial expansion, industrial explosion, political identity, artistic flourishing.. Meet the ghosts of martyred Christians, iconic painters, war combatants, religious legends, glory hunting kings, medieval hangmen and many more, all of whom have left a cultural and physical mark on the windy, close- quartered streets of this, the oldest part of Barcelona. On the Gothic tour we'll find out what lies within the Catalan people, how what makes them "tick", and more importantly, why! We'll bring to life the stories, humour, triumphs, disasters that go to the soul of the Catalan people. Oh yeah, we´ll also meet a VERY HAIRY CATALAN MAN!!

We really enjoyed the tour, honestly. Patrick was very funny and showed us many interesting things. It's always important to understand the guide and since he is a native speaker, we had no problem to catch all his words. We appreciate that he took care of us. We highly recommend this tour (with him).
