Full description
Meet your local guide at the lively Ramblas and head out onto the vibrant streets of Barcelona where historical adventure awaits. The first stop of the day is Palau Guell, the first great work of Antoni Gaudi, followed by the Plaza Real, an elegant square surrounded by palm trees and arcades. Follow your guide to La Boqueria next, a colorful and historical market that is not to be missed. Continue the tour into the heart of the Gothic Quarter where you can admire the impressive Roman Walls, Old Cathedral, Jewish Quarter, Sant Felip Neri Square, and other must-see gems. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, taste the flavors of Spanish cuisine and enjoy a tapa accompanied by red wine in a local tavern. While you eat, listen to your guide share fascinating stories about Barcelona’s history, culture, traditions, and way of life. After lunch, wander through the charming Born Quarter until you arrive at the spectacular Santa Maria del Mar Church. The final stop of the day is the Born Market and Memorial Center, where you can see the medieval ruins recently found beneath the city. *Veggie option available

I highly recommend this visit, whether you already know the city a little or are discovering it for the first time! Raphaël leads you to unusual places, and shares his knowledge of the past and current social fabric of the City! Thanks
