Charlie Ruiz Tours... don't be a Guiri and feel the magic of enjoying Barcelona as a local!!! Following the Top10 list of "you must do/visit" is way to easy but you will never get involved by people's energy. Do you really want to walk by through Barcelona streets and not leave the footprints of your heart in this amazing city? Taking lots of pictures will help you get a nice album to show to your family and friends but that is the same as collecting nice images with no feelings or emotions. Yes indeed, you visited a new city and you can say "I was there" in the same way as if you sit and watch the film but jumping actively into the screen and becoming the main character of that movie is much more exciting. Plus, there are hundreds of libraries and excellent History books to learn more about the city but I'm completely sure you're expecting much more right? You could even get over collapsed by lots of data and information that you could also read or find on Internet, Google and Wikipedia. But this is not what my tours are about. Moreover, are you the type of person wanting to live new experiences and adding new emotions to your visits and trips? Why should visiting Barcelona become just one more place to mark on an endless checklist of places to visit? Let's make a difference out of that! Don't you prefer creating the best story of your life? How about being the Genious of the lamp and see how the holidays of your dreams come true? Play, live, experience and feel the magic of enjoying BCN as a local with the best Tour guide you could ever imagine. Did you realize that you are now on a one way direction road to happiness in Barcelona? You've just got your ticket as a Dream-maker and about to see how you are about to FALL IN LOVE WITH BARCELONA!!!! CHARLIE RUIZ WALKING TOURS is your best option!!!

About the Tour

TOUR EIXAMPLE + PARAL.LEL Barcelona, down with the walls!!

Only by knowing the past and the history of the city can we understand the present and how Barcelona projects itself into the future.
In this tour of Barcelona's Eixample we will learn about the enormous impact , the importance that some historical events had in transforming a city that today is a source of pride for its urban organization and its modern, open and tolerant, supportive, international, cosmopolitan spirit. and multicultural.

From Avinguda Paral.lel to the Hospital Clínic we will delve into some key issues:
- What happens when the city breaks down the walls and begins to grow towards the outskirts?
- How does the Barcelona City Council face the new challenges of urban planning as a result of the municipal aggregation Decrees of 1897?
- What would have happened if Pla Cerdà had not prospered?
- What are the main features and characteristics of the Eixample from the point of view of the city's urban planning?
- Have you heard of the "iron architecture" of the time? (Sant Antoni Market and Hostafrancs)
-How has neighborhood life been transformed in the last century to the present day? (some examples: La Modelo Prison / Escola Industrial / Hospital Clinic)

All this and much more in 2 and a half hours of "Eixample Tour: below the walls of Barcelona" with the best free tour agency in the world: Guruwalk #charlieruiztours

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Avinguda Paral.lel- corner of the medieval wall of Drassanes

Nos gustó mucho el recorrido con Charlie, tiene mucho conocimiento de el origen de los barrios y se convierte en un recorrido atípico de lo normalmente turístico, lo mismo que lo hace súper interesante. Charlie se adaptó a nuestros intereses y lo que ya conocíamos y modificó un poco el recorrido para que describiésemos más cosas del Eixample. Lo recomiendo ampliamente para otros walkers
