Tour description

This tour is intended for those people who have only a few days to explore the city and are looking to make the most of every hour of walking.
Unlike most of the tours offered, we will join the neighborhoods of Raval, Gótico, Santa Caterina and Sant Pere. The meeting point will be at Plaça de la Universitat and we will begin the tour along the Ronda de Sant Antoni, to enter the mythical Raval neighborhood and, thus, begin the tour...
Points to visit:
1. Old Hospital of Santa Cruz

2. Old monastery of Sant Pau del camp

3. Portal of Santa Madrona and medieval wall

4. Columbus Monument

5. La Rambla

6. Royal Square

7. Basilica of Santa María del Pi

8. Bishop's Bridge
9. Santa Caterina Market
10. Palau de la Música

and others....

When organizing the tour I asked myself the following question: What places would I like to see if I were in Barcelona and only had about 3 hours?
I'm waiting for you to show you places and secrets of this city that I like so much and which I hope you will also fall in love with.

Aprendimos muchas cosas, es un buen guia que sabe de historia y de la ciudad. Nos vamos con una vision muy clara de Barcelona, de lo que era y como era y como ha llegado a transformarse en la ciudad que es hoy en dia
