Discover the splendor of a big capital city with a private guide


This is a walk through 1500 years of the history of Barcelona and its key places. From Roman Barcino to the splendor of the Kingdom of Aragon and Catalunya that dominated the Mediterranean sea between the XII and XIV centuries.
During this 4 hour walking tour we will explore the narrow and winding alleys that compose the medieval part of Barcelona. Those streets and alleys were not built to be driven by cars so the best way to explore this section of the city is on foot. We will see palaces, romanesque churches built more than one thousand years ago, the XIV century Barcelona's cathedral with its cloister and We will walk through the old jewish quarter. We don't have to forget about the roman remains: tombs, remains of the old wall and the temple dedicated to Augustus.

A Recent Review of this tour

Cayetano is an excellent guide — very knowledgeable and friendly and addressed all of our many questions. His perspective as a native of Barcelona was so interesting! The half day tour was a great way for our family of 5 to spend our first afternoon in Barcelona and to get an introduction to the city and its history. We would highly recommend a tour with Cayetano!
