Free Tour of the Illustrious and Revolutionary Women of Barcelona
Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!
This guided tour is very special to us. In it, we want to review a good part of the recent history of Barcelona and Spain through the vision of women, who fought to get a better place to live. Women have always tried to play an active role in the social and political events of our society, but it is since the beginning of the 20th century that many of them began to claim their rights as citizens of a country dominated by men. They did it through demonstrations, strikes and protests, some of them taking place in Barcelona itself; but also through speeches and political actions in different Parliaments and Commissions. We see them leading different historical events, in the Tragic Week, the Strikes of 1918, the Second Republic, the Civil War or the clandestine struggle during the Franco Dictatorship. And also reaching political achievements, such as the right to vote, abortion or divorce. It is a part of history that is not always as visible as we think. For this reason, today we invite you to delve into the exciting 20th century to review the most relevant events and social movements that took place in Barcelona. You fancy? Book your route through the rebel Barcelona now.
Only groups of up to 6 people are allowed in this activity. If you are 7 or more people, you will be asked for a payment per person in advance to join the visit.
