Explore in depth the Gothic Quarter and Born District with a private tour guide


Embark yourself on a walking tour in the heart of medieval Gothic Quarter and let me show you all the highlights of this quarter. Of course, I won't forget to share some local stories!

We will start our tour at Placa Catalunya (or I will pick you up from your hotel if you prefer) where you'll see the Gothic Cathedral, a famous landmark. Our tour will continue with Placa del Rei and two beautiful gothic constructions.
Next stop is the political Square of Barcelona just before we pass through the Jewish Quarter where you'll hear the story how the Jewish people banished from Spain by Queen Isabella at the end of the 15th century.
From there, we will make our way on La Rambla to the local market La Boqueria. Here, you'll get a glimpse at the gastronomic traditions of Catalan people and you can grab a yummy snack if you want.
Stroll through Placa del Rei and check the outstanding architecture of Santa Maria del Mar (14-century gothic church).
Our last stop it will be at the Cultural Centre el Born.

A Recent Review of this tour

Outstanding guide. Very energetic and enthusiastic. We almost didn't book her because she is not from Barcelona. That would have been a terrible mistake. Florenta was very knowledgeable about the area. We liked her so much and did a second tour with her to Montserrat. Don't miss your chance to spend some time with this lovely young lady.
