You will walk through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter exploring the charms and mysteries of this area, and understanding how it developed a personality of its own. You will discover places that have marked the history of Barcelona, such as the Plaça del Rey, the Barcelona Cathedral and the Plaça San Felip de Neri amongst others. You will be delighted by the vibe of el Born district, influenced by its local neighbors and its visitors.

Cuando llegamos al punto de encuentro solo éramos mi pareja y yo para hacer el tour, por lo que el guía nos recolocó en outro tour con la misma temática pero en el que había más gente, así que muy contentos. Por un momento temíamos que nos lo cancelaran, pero todo salió muy bien.

Paulina, una genia del tour. Con ella recorrimos y aprendimos cosas que no sabíamos y nos mantuvo súper atrapados con las historias. Súper recomendable. Nos quedamos con ganas de más, pero ya no teníamos tiempo. Para la próxima será seguramente. Gracias.
