Gothic Quarter (Old Town) with a private licensed guide


Wandering the Old Town is to taste 2000 years of history.

We will visit the Ramblas, the most famous avenue in Barcelona; the Boqueria food market, the most visited in the city; the Liceo Theatre, the magnificence of the bourgeoisie; the gothic Pi Church; the old Jewish District; Sant Felip Neri Square and the imprint of the Spanish Civil War; the Cathedral; the Royal Palace; the City Council and the Government Palace; the roman ruins in the Augustus Temple (1st century BC); and the church of Santa María del Mar. We will also make a few other stops to see other exceptional places of the city that I will keep as a surprise for you.
Halfway through the tour I suggest we make a stop to rest. To me, one of the best options is to go to one of the historic hot chocolate stores where we can taste the "Suizo": hot chocolate with cream and churros.

Itinerary

Ramblas; the Boqueria Market; the Liceo Theatre; the gothic Pi Church; the old Jewish District; Sant Felip Neri Square; the Cathedral (inside); the Royal Palace; the City Council and the Government Palace; the Augustus roman Temple; and the church of Santa María del Mar.

I suggest a stop to rest in one of the historic hot chocolate shops where we can taste the "Suizo": hot chocolate with cream and churros.

Cathedral dress code: shoulders must be covered and shorts are not allowed (an scarf can help).

Availability: this tour is not offered on Sunday. On Saturdays after 5PM it's not possible to visit the Cathedral. On Mondays some of the stops of the Boqueria are closed.

An option is to stay in the Downtown, where I will suggest some restaurants to you or some activity to do on your own.

A Recent Review of this tour

Francesc is an excellent guide!!! He is very knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona and the Gothic quarter. He is engaging, well spoken, and very friendly. I highly recommend him! He gave our family (two teenagers included) a tour of the Gothic Quarter and both kids said they enjoyed his tour. He makes it interesting for both teens and adults.
