Know deeply this vibrant boulevard that never sleeps and visit with a private guide


Back in Barcelona? You have been to Barcelona more than once, maybe you have already been strolling Rambla down but just a little because you were on a general tour. You only had a taste, and now you want to know genuinely. . . You want to listen to the vibrant history and stories of this never-sleeping boulevard. If so, this is your tour !!!

The Rambla was in origin a small stream flowing just outside the city walls. In the 16th century convents, hospitals and a university were built all along the river. In the 19th century, the city wall was demolished, and buildings were erected along the now dried up river.

Even though it is a continuous street, the Rambla consists of five 'Ramblas. ' That's why you will sometimes read La Rambla (in singular) or Les Rambles (in plural).

Let's get into its magic !!!

Itinerary

We'll start from the north of La Rambla where lies Catalunya Square considered where the old and modern city meet. To the east of La Rambla is the Gothic Quarter with small squares and streets. To the west is the Raval quarter, outside the city's earliest wall, this area was the site os religious and medical institutions. At the southern end is the Cristopher Columbus Monument and the Old Marina. Near is the Royal Dockyards. And if you still want to go down more we can take a wooden walkway into the harbor called the Rambla de Mar (Sea Rambla)

This tour with Gloria was an excellent introduction to my time in Barcelona as a senior, solo traveler. Gloria is responsive, knowledgeable, flexible and helpful. She is a delight to spend a few hours with, satisfied all my questions, introduced me to new ideas, and she offered me further ideas to explore on my own. I'm grateful for this tour with Gloria!
