Get lost through the Old Town

To discover the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic quarter, el Raval, el Born and la Ribera, there's no better way than wandering around. You might feel you are lost, yes, but you'll be in good hands, no worries.
We will browse alleys and plazas in a 3 hours walking tour!
We'll see the Cathedral and the area around with some Roman remains of the oldest Barcelona. The charming area of Santa Maria del Mar and el Born. El Raval with it's melting pot and some bizarre mix of modern and old architecture.


The Gothic Quarter contains the oldest part of Barcelona, some of its roman remains, the Cathedral, Plaça del Rei and the Jewish area. El Raval is the less known neighbourhood of the old town of Barcelona, the oldest hospital and the very modern MACBA. We will also visit the charming Born area with Santa Maria del Mar basilica and Montcada Street.

The actual itinerary depends on your particular interests as well. I'd be glad to adapt!
