Tour description

Barcelona is and has always been a diverse and proud city. This is the reason why we seek to know and delve into the history of sexual freedom and diversity in the city that saw the birth of the first LGBT pride march in Spain.

In an itinerary of about two hours we will visit mythical places through which great references of the collective have passed and locations where emblematic spaces shone that have been at the same time refuge, vanguard and resistance of queer Barcelona.

During the route we will visit mythical sites for the history of the LGTBI collective such as Ocaña, Las Ramblas, El Cangrejo, El Molino, the Keith Haring mural, among others, but we will also talk about La Criolla, Madame Petit, Jean Genet and Carmen de Mairena.

Se nota que al Guru Juan Pablo le apasiona lo que hace: te contagia su amor por la ciudad, su arquitectura y su historia. Super sólido y formado. Hay muchas ofertas de city tours en Barcelona, este potencia positivamente tu experiencia. Volveré el próximo sábado a hacer el tour de la guerra civil española con él!

Muy buen tour. El contraste del pasado y el presente en los escenarios donde sucedieron algunos hitos históricos, le pone el sabor especial. Mi guía fue Juan Pablo y supe que hace otros tours. Voy a anotarme porque es genial y muy expresivo. Se ganó la propina que no estaba incluida en el precio! Un 10!

La ruta me sorprendió mucho! No sólo visitamos sitios claves para entender la historia de la comunidad LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 de Barcelona, sino que Juan cuenta también cómo vive hoy el colectivo. Muchas gracias, Juan! Iremos al show drag que nos recomendaste!
