A Recent Review of this tour

Gloria's informative tour of Roman & Medieval Barcelona took us throughout the old town, stopping at various points of architectural and historical interest. It was fascinating to learn about the founding of Barcelona, what it was like to live in Barcelona during medieval times, and what modifications had been made to the city as it grew. We also stopped at the villa that houses the Picasso Musuem, and learned about Picasso's early life. My family LOVED the tour - including my 15 and 17 year old boys!
