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.

The Gothic Quarter was fascinating. I grew up in a gentile in a Jewish community and learned so much more than I knew about Jewish history. It was a great tour. You will learn so much. I recommend it highly!
