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. A native English speaking guide living in the city for 13 years, with a Spanish wife with lots of long time Barcelona friends, I have lots of first hand information about what lies within the Catalan people, how what makes them "tick", and more importantly, why! And as a professional Actor I´ll bring to life the stories, humour, triumphs, disasters that go to the soul of the Catalan people. Oh yeah, the best chocolate and Churros in town and we´ll also meet a VERY HAIRY CATALAN MAN!!

Booking not required for children under 18.
