Barcelona: Gothic Quarter Legends Walking Tour with Tapas

2. Barcelona: Gothic Quarter Legends Walking Tour with Tapas

Travel back to medieval Barcelona, and hear stories of the characters that inhabited the atmospheric Barrio Gotico, and their relationship to the city’s history. Meet your guide at Carrer Montsio n.10. Continue to Plaça Nova near the imposing Cathedral of Santa Eulalia. As you wander down the winding streets leading off the square, your guide will tell an enthralling history of the city, revealing some of the hidden sights in secret corners. Learn about the ancient gates of the Roman city of Barcino, and continue through the Jewish Quarter of El Call. You’ll come across picturesque squares, such as Plaça Sant Jaume, site of the City Hall and Presidential Palace. Marvel at the Palau Reial Major in Plaça del Rei, and window shop along pedestrianized Plaça de l’Àngel, now one of Barcelona’s most expensive areas. See the mariner’s church of Santa María del Mar, and end in front of lively Santa Caterina Market. Then, it’s time to taste some authentic pintxos (snacks) in a traditional tapas bar of the El Born neighborhood.

Barcelona: Slow Tour of the Gothic Quarter and Beyond

3. Barcelona: Slow Tour of the Gothic Quarter and Beyond

Join your guide on this 3.5-hour tour to see some historically significant sites of Barcelona in an authentic manner: see the places frequented by people who live in the neighborhood, unknown to the general public. Barcelona’s narrow and labyrinthine streets make the ideal scenario to enjoy the city center without hurry, reveling in the remains that are preserved from the glorious past of the city. Your route begins at “Carmela”, the sculpture by Jaume Plensa next to the Palau de la Música and runs almost 3 kilometers through Barri de Sant Pere, the Ribera, and the Gothic Quarter. Along the way, you’ll see sites like the Convent de Sant Agusti, Capella d’en Marcus, Santa Maria del Mar, Temple Roma, House of the Ardiaca, and more.   In addition to a pleasant gastronomic surprise during the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to taste a snack in a very special place, connected with the art, quietness, and charm of Gothic architecture. The tour ends in the most touristic area of the city, where you can visit on your own the more popular monuments of the city.

Our guide Carla was amazing. Dhe studied art history in university so she had a lot of interesting information to give us about the architecture and seemed just as excited as we were about the Roman origins of Gothic Barcelona. She answered all of our questions and was extremely personable. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants a great tour with a nice and knowledgeable person. Great experience.

highly recommended. purchased online, arrived in Barcelona at the tourist box, go and pick it up and start the tour. excellent travel companion. of course it also depends on how many museums to visit. super the science museum

Excellent opportunity to visit Barcelona by public transport, both by bus and metro, free of charge, from the airport to the city and even within. Of the 25 museums we visited 20.

Excellent system for visiting the city ... the cost of the card is ideal for saving!
