Discover the original side of Barcelona


This experience takes you through the old town, a maze that mixes old legends, must-see landmarks, crazy stories and vibrant traditions.

The tour starts at the Hard Rock Cafe in Plaça Catalunya, the most iconic square in Barcelona.

Soon we step into the Barri Gòtic through the hidden passage that connects yesterday and today - the medieval maze populated with narrow alleys, concealed churches, shaded plazas and centuries-old legends.
This experience shows Barcelona's hidden side.
As you touch the Roman walls and temple, you will experience our city's history.
Then, we jump to the guilt district to discover the Catedral of the Sea, the House of El Gegants, art galleries, and many other things.
