Full description
Discover the unknown Barcelona and walk through 2000 years of history and spirituality. Romans, Visigoths, Jews, counts, sailors, merchants and people from all over the Mediterranean walked these streets. You'll see medieval churches, incredible modern architecture… but there's also a legendary and mystical Barcelona, a story of Templars, Freemasons and Cabalists that resists being forgotten and claims its footprint in the history to be understood. Let's take a walk around the Gothic Quarter and discover old Roman Barcino, the flourishing and powerful medieval Barcelona with the old Jewish “call” (Catalan term for a Jewish quarter) and the great emergence of Kabbalah in Catalonia. You'll unveil the remains of the Templars. See the Templar and Masonic symbols in the Gothic cathedral, an esoteric basilica with a touch of alchemy and you'll find the splendor of 19th century Freemasonry. During your stroll, all this will be related with the spirituality of the Western esoteric tradition. Did you know that modern Barcelona was designed by a Freemason?.. and Gaudi, was he a Freemason? Esoteric Barcelona goes all the way back to a temple dedicated to Jupiter to modern homes and mystery schools... this city has light.

    This was an amazing and fascinating tour! Sandra went above and beyond our expectations. She has a lot of knowledge regarding historic symbolism and Western esotericism. She showed us many architectural elements and places in the Gothic Quarter that we would have overlooked on our own. I highly recommend this tour for those interested in symbolism and esoteric history. Eat before you go and wear comfortable walking shoes.

    Sandra is just full of incredible information. I've learned a lot about the history of Barcelona, about the esoteric influences... And even though I've read my share of books on western esotericism I still learned a lot of new things. You will walk through the old city core where the remnants of the old Roman walls still stand, you will visit the places like the beautiful Gothic cathedral, the Jewish quarters... I don't want to spoil everything :) I really learned a lot about Barcelona too. This is not just another tour. It's a learning experience with a tendency for self-reflection and discovery. I would easily recommend to any of my friends. 3 hours go by very quickly.
