This was our second tour with Mar and once again, it was as if we were walking with a knowledgeable friend. We thought we had seen everything we had to see in the Gòtic area on our own in the days before but Mar revealed hidden streets and buildings and passageways. Her knowledge of the history of Barcelona is vast and broad. We had a snack in a "local" coffee shop, not a typical tourist one. She also made suggestions for museums and restaurants.
