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!!!

Tour description

#toursantsbarri
The Sants-Montjuic district is one of the most densely populated in the city of Barcelona. Are you interested in popular culture and neighborhood life? What makes SANTS a neighborhood with such a class consciousness and such a protest spirit? Where is the border between the workers' struggle clamoring for social improvements and economic progress or commercial development? Many stories to tell and learn to understand the social transformations that have led Sants to be one of the most emblematic and historic neighborhoods in the city.
We will go through some key points:

  • Sculpture "Woman and bird" in the Joan Miró park.
  • Old shopping center Las Arenas bullring.
  • Mercat d'Hostafrancs and commercial hub of Creu Coberta.
  • Parc de l'Espanya Industrial.
  • Saints station.
