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!

Tour description

We present you the best option to discover another side of Barcelona through one of its most roguish and enigmatic neighbourhoods : El Raval.

We will visit the famous modernist taverns and some of the most traditional shops and venues in this part of Barcelona.

Let's try to take you to the middle of the 19th century so that you know what the day-to-day life of the so-called Chinatown was like.

We will talk about topics that were and still are the most controversial: the workers' struggle, prostitution, illnesses or the poverty of the Raval.

Realities and fantasies that combine in a neighborhood full of secrets and stories to discover...
